American Says to Get Tougher on Texting While Driving

As the world moves ahead and technology becomes more advanced, more people than ever are texting while driving. This can be a cause of concern, especially if people do not realize the serious consequences it could have. Not only can this be dangerous to your life, but the lives of other people as well.

In accordance to this, the people of America say that the restrictions on cell phones need to be stricter. The penalties need to be tougher on those that are caught doing it. Only around 20 percent of American people are satisfied with the laws put in force for texting and driving. The rest of the people state that these rules need to be changed. Not only should they be tougher, but the police enforcing them should be meaner. Parents should urge and push their children to stop texting and driving. They should show them results of this – the consequences you would face if you were in an accident.

Those found to be texting and driving should lose their licenses. They should be made to know that this is not acceptable because it doesn’t make other people feel safe on the road. A lot of Americans stated that it should go off a point system, that people should pay large fines, do jail time and there should be different levels of penalties for first and second time offenders. This is to ensure that everyone knows that their phone should be turned off or tucked away somewhere that they are not able to get too.

This campaign to stop texting and driving has been going on for years now, but the public is realizing that it is going to take a lot more support […]

What is New with Mothers Against Drunk Driving

MADD or Mothers Against Drunk Driving has been busy these past few years organizing their campaigns and raising awareness, but they also came out with their new virgin line of drinks. With this being said, it is safe to assume that these can be consumed by the person driving, still enjoy a tasty drink and be able to drive everyone home safely. These drinks are able to be purchased in a wide assortment of options, so the designated driver does not have to feel left out when they are out at a party – after all, they are the guest of honor.

Walgreens is the store of choice when it comes to purchasing some of these drinks. Those that are going with the designated driver should be nice to purchase some for them. They cannot, however be purchased by those under the drinking age even though they are alcohol-free. This would send a mixed message to those that are under age. Not only does this drink provide so many benefits to those going out, but it is also something that helps support Mothers Against Drunk Driving. Through the partnership that MADD has with Walgreens, they are collecting 5 percent of the retail sales to help with their ongoing efforts to stop drunk driving and helps to support the victims of drunk driving – the preventable crime.

These drinks are flavored just like normal alcoholic drinks, so the person is still able to get the same taste, but not the effects that come along with it. These effects could be dangerous. Even the style of the can looks a lot like an alcoholic drink – don’t be fooled! Choose to purchase these drinks for yourself, or the […]

Higher Gas Prices to Kick Off 2014 Summer

With the summer of 2014 comes higher gas prices than before. This is a lot to take in for some that are already having a hard time paying for the rising gas bill that they face each week. Just a slight raise is going to go into effect, a few cents more than the previous two summers. However, with this in mind, the price for gas is still lower than it was just a month before so this might be a plus for some but only a few cents down is not going to be enough.

The reason for this price rise is the demand for oil everywhere. The prices are going up for the demand on oil, which means that those of us that use it will have to pay more for it at the gas pump. There is a lot of tension at the wells, which is beginning the rising prices and a lot of people are keeping a close eye on the costs so that they are able to choose whether or not to use it when the time comes – some of us might not be that lucky and have to use it to get to where we need to go on a daily basis.

It has been reported that oil by the barrel prices are much higher than what we have been spending and this might be a problem when it comes to purchasing gas. With such a strong demand, a lot of people are going to continue to purchase it – even as the prices go up into the $4 and $5 range. This is a lot of money to spend on one gallon of gas, but if it has […]
