    I wonder if ageism plays a key in situations like these? Society views ‘older adults’ in such a negative light it is difficult to know if driving should be apart of their lives.

  • Distracted Driving Argumentative Essay

    Torie: Distracted driving comes in many forms. Some people believe “the message is more important than their safety” (“Reasons Teens Text and Drive”). However, what they are not thinking about is that “more than 32,600 people are killed in motor vehicle accidents in the United States” (“Doubly Dangerous: Snapchatting While Driving”).
