Dear Mom and Dad,

I’ve really been thinking about this whole driving incident, These past few days have made me see it differently. I’ve learned that this isn't necessarily about keeping insurance rates down or keeping a good reputation, Head injuries are extremely common in car accidents and after seeing what happened to Zack, I could never let you guys go through that. Doing what I did, and driving how I used to, is a good way to critically injure myself, or someone else… What has happened to Zack has really showed me that I’m not invincible, and things can happen to anyone at anytime no matter who you are. This has really shown me that I need to be even more responsible than I originally thought. My first impressions on getting ungrounded was that I just wouldn't get any tickets or screw around anymore, but now I realize I need to protect myself as well as others on the road. I promise there will be no more bending the rules and breaking your laws and the state of Florida laws. I’ve realized there is a much deeper message in this than just paying my tickets and being grounded. I’ve come up with a system that could be used to keep me in check, and make things easier for you guys. It should also really help me gain my trust back. I might be the closest thing to hell you've ever raised but I need to learn from my mistakes and pave the way for the man I have to become, because I can’t stay a boy forever.

Basically how this would work is we would have a points system. Originally, to get a truck I had to drive incident-free for 6 months, obviously I screwed that up. I thought about just doubling the time to 12 incident-free months, but I realized that wouldn't be enough for you guys to consider. So instead, we would have a 120 point system. To get a truck, I must acquire 120 points. I can acquire 10 points a month, so at bare minimum, it would take me a course of 12 months to get a truck. There would be a chart like this.This is a great system because I can

    Driving a Car Compared To Writing a Letter When driving a car you have to know the basic functions such as knowing how to turn on the car, where the signals are and how to use them, which pedals is the brake and which one is the gas (this is especially important when driving because you do not want to crash by confusing the two).

    Driving can be stressful for everyone. Even though it is the most convenient way to arrive to our destination today, it can be extremely challenging. The problem is not driving because that is pretty simple, it is the people who are out there sharing the road with you. I have only been driving for about a year now, but I have seen some reckless drivers. For instance, some drivers can be in a hurry, oblivious, or even filled with rage. Naturally I understand if someone is speeding past me because…

    should be illegal to drive while using a phone because it distracts drivers from the road and makes the roads unsafe. Although some believe it should not be illegal, actually it should because driving and being on the phone is one of the main causes for death and accidents in the United States. While driving, if someone looks at their phone for more than three seconds it doubles the chance of getting into an accident. A driver on their phone may not have their eyes on the road, so they might not…

    What I Learned at Driving School Driving school was quite the experience for me. To say the least, it was extremely interesting. I learned so much from this course, which I did not even know I could learn so much about driving in four hours! Throughout my paper, I will talk about the main topics that I learned and what I expect to make me a better driver. The Alabama Graduated Drivers License Law was one of the main things I learned during this course. This law is very important today and became…

    accidents. However raising the minimum driving age at which people can drive might reduce this. But is this a benefit to society or are the statistics true? We can help lower these accidents rates if the driving age is raised till the age 21, and so that no more kids can get hurt or get serious injured or killed on a free way or by another car crashing into their can. If we do raise the driving age it will be much safer for the young drivers. I think that the driving age should be banned till the age…
