Argue This: – awareness of mass = beneficial (regarding road safety)

Argue This: – awareness of mass = beneficial (regarding road safety)

  In road safety, an awareness of speed is an important factor to consider. An awareness of momentum, brings an awareness to consider the mass of vehicles. In road safety, an awareness of mass is an important factor to consider.   Argue This: – Awareness of mass = beneficial (regarding road safety).   Argument: (assume the accident is same for both) A. If a small car tail-gates another small car, all travelling at 30mph…. should an accident occur…. and one collides with the rear … Read entire article »
