The Article, “Distracted Driving: Fast Lane to Disaster” that was published in May 2012, talks about how there is a recent rise in distracted driving because of the new digital age (cell phones, texting, navigational devices). More common now then ever people are texting/talking on the phone while driving. Distracted driving has always been an issue because people eat, drink, brush their hair, put on their makeup, check a map, change the radio station, etc., but the digital age has totally blown it out of proportion and multiplied the hazards. The Author expresses that drivers are now even more distracted with the technologies available to them.

Some of us may remember wearing those dreaful and plain blue uniforms back in high school. While they had some advantages, like the fact that students had an easier time in the morning to choose what they will wear, I feel like uniforms are, overall, not that great, for they transgress the student's right of freedom of expression. Teenagers are going through a period in their lives where they need to discover themselves and forge their own identity, and one way of doing so is by being able to pick what they dress with.
