It is important for every American citizen to know and understand how laws work. Unfortunately, many people seem to forget that they are in fact people too. Unfortunately, laws only exist to keep you protected, while at the same time getting on a dangerous slippery slope as well. This happens almost every day. Most people simply don’t realize the actual law, so they always fail to do something to prevent themselves of what could certainly happen to them in the future. Laws can actually help guide us towards the right path and keep us from making poor choices or decisions that we may regret later down the road.
The slippery slope is one of life’s little mysteries, but it is very much a presence. If we don t pay attention when driving, we could easily crash into a guard rail and end up with a ticket. If we fail to yield when we are walking the street, we may find ourselves in an accident with an uninsured driver. When we are shopping and have our car keys out, we may very easily forget that we shouldn’t drink and drive, or that we should be careful when crossing the street.
This is why it is very important for every American citizen to be well acquainted with the law. It is not a hard concept, yet many times people forget just how important it is. We can easily get careless and make poor decisions that we may regret for the rest of our lives. Laws are there to keep us from making these mistakes, yet sometimes things happen that we can’t control, such as when we have an auto collision.
A question that I’m sure almost everyone has been asking themselves is “how can laws protect me when I get into an accident in September of next year.” The answer is simple. All laws were created so that people would be able to enjoy life. If we want to stay safe on the roads, we need to obey the laws all the time; even if we think they are silly or unnecessary.
A common question is “so, when do I break one of the laws?” The answer to that question is simple; we only break laws when we break them when we aren’t paying attention, thinking that they don’t exist. That slippery slope we talk about just isn’t there, so we don’t bother learning how to avoid it, and we get ourselves into trouble. If we follow the law, we shouldn’t have to worry about anything else.
Another question that you may ask yourself is “So, when is another person’s life important?” The answer to that question is obvious, you should respect the lives of other people as much as you would like to. We all must remember that one person’s life isn’t worth much, but another person’s life can mean everything to them. We must always respect each other’s rights and freedoms, as well as the rights and freedoms of others. If we continue to do this, we will be able to enjoy the same lifestyle, without worrying about another person’s life, yet again.
