This paper seeks to provide information on various research topics. The three research questions to be discussed are:
* Should regulations regarding the use of cell phones while driving be standardized?
* Should vehicles (cars, trucks, vans, SUVs) be required to have backup cameras?
* Should all states require motorcyclists and passengers to wear helmets?
Should regulations regarding the use of cell phones while driving be standardized?
I have chosen this question because it is one which concentrates on the safety of human beings. The people addressed in this issue are those who drive. In the current society, there are a number of accidents which have been caused through using cell phones while driving. This gives a clear impression that if drivers are advised not to use cell phones while driving, such incidents will not happen (Young, Lee & Regan, 2008). Regulations regarding the use of cell phones while driving be standardized to make certain that all drivers are treated the same. If these rules are standardized, every driver will have in mind what he or she is supposed to do at the time of driving. Standardizing means that the rules will be similar in all places and rivers will always know what is required of them at all times (Sturnquist, 2006).
Thesis statement: Regulations regarding the use of cell phones while driving should be standardized to avoid confusion for the drivers and ensure equality as well as enhancing safety.
Should vehicles (cars, trucks, vans, SUVs) be required to have backup cameras?
I chose this second question because it deals with safety as well. There are vehicles and trucks which are mainly used for entrepreneurial purposes (Thomas & Jund, 2013). In this case, there are those that are used to transport expensive goods and at some point anything such as robbing may happen. Backup cameras in this case will be used to make sure that such incidents do not take place. For personal cars, carjacking may take place and backup cameras will be useful in case this incident moves to the court. It will be easier to catch those who are involved. Cases in court will easily be handled because of ready evidence that makes it possible to get the individuals who caused the situations in question. This also gives a clear impression that cases involving cars will always be dealt with, within a short time, enabling other cases to be dealt with on time as well. These are some of the issues that affect individuals who are using vehicles and backup cameras can be of great help to solve problems associated with them (Bhise, 2011).
Thesis Statement: Vehicles are required to have backup cameras so that incase of any serious incident, the file footages can be used where necessary.
Should all states require motorcyclists and passengers to wear helmets?
Just like the other two questions, this one is also involved with safety. All states should require that all motorcyclists and passengers wear helmets (Merson, Black & Mills, 2012). Over the years when motorcycles have been in use, it has been noted that motorcyclists who wear helmets and make sure that their passengers do so too have greater chances of escaping fatal injuries when an accident takes place (Dorris & Purswell, 1978). In this case, every state should make sure that the motorcyclists and passengers wear helmets. This is for the purpose of reducing the number of those who get injured.
Thesis statement: All states should require that all motorcyclists and passengers wear helmets for the purpose of protecting passengers as well as motorcyclists.
