    • Teenegers need to learn all the basics and instructions of driving in order to prevent collisions and accidents. Also teens need to take the test to test their knowledge knowing the risk for driving a vehicle. it is very important for many people around the world to drive safe and know that there are many people that can easily lose their lives in any time during driving.

    • Dear Jennifer,

      I love your post and i agree that teenagers need to machure and learn the basics of driving. Also teens need to also stop texting and driving. By doing all of these we can reduce the automobile collisions or accidents that could be fatal. we also need to realize that when we have the steering wheel we have a big responsibility to drive safely and not be in a collision where there could be light injuries or severe and even fatal injuries. And we need to stop doing incomplete stops and be more cautious in intersections so there could be less deaths caused by accidents each year.

    • Dear Jennifer,
      I am not surprised by your post “Car Accidents”, because so many people have driven while being intoxicated and end up causing an accident. There have been people who are not aware of their surroundings because they are on their cell phones. Speed Driving is so dangerous that they run through a red light or don’t even stop at a stop sign. One sentence that stood out for me was “One reason why individuals need to be educated about car accidents is so that they could know the various risks and wounds from it.” I think this is so important because people will then take driving seriously and start to drive safer. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to see what you write because drivers need to be aware of their surroundings because you never know if there is a reckless driver right beside you.

    • Dear: Jennfire

      I am cristin i just wanted to say Always stop if you are involved in an accident, this is your legal obligation. Even if you do not think there was any damage, any time you collide with something, you need to stop yList of Information to Collect About the Car Accident or Collision 1 Date and Time of the Accident 2 Address of the accident, or approximate address 3 Road you are on and the nearest cross street 4 The direction you were traveling in 5 The direction the other car was traveling in 6 Take photos from a few angles or sketch a diagram of the crash scene 7 What happened (As soon as you can write out your account of what happened, or use your mobile phone to record yourself telling all the details for your own records. our car.

    • Dear Jennifer :
      I am amazed by your post, “Car Accidents,” because you express the reasons for drivers to be safe for themselves and also for pedestrians or other cars. Every driver needs to know about car accidents and how to prevent those accidents but also talking about stuff that could happen like wounds or any other serious thing.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “ Despite the fact that using various kinds of transportation could reduce the number of car accidents happening but it could also be dangerous” I think this is interesting because we think that keeping ourselves from having to take our own car can prevent accidents to happen. Taking public transports also it is really risky because it also involves cars and other things that also involve those car accidents.
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next because this really impersonated me to see that we need to be really careful to what decisions we make when driving. Drivers have to see the factors and responsibilities it takes to be a good driver.

    • Dear Jennifer, I agree with you that there should be more precautions taken when driving behind the wheel. Responsibility also plays a big role when driving, so people shouldnt be selfish and drive intoxicated because they arent thinking about the other people that they could harm or kill if they crash. Thats why there needs to be extra measures taken before hand. Like knowing your limit or having a trust worthy friend that is not intoxicated or taking a taxi I agree with you that more people need to be responsible and learn more about driving safety because their life depends on it

    • Dear Jennifer,
      Young people and adults need to take driving seriously and be really careful of the movements they do while driving. And follow driving instructions because it’s for their proper good.
      Sincerely, Rosa Zavala

    I feel impressed and interested by your post, “Latinx Community”. One sentence that really stood out to me was “…the Latinx community has survived in Oakland for several years despite the countless times they have been displaced in different parts of Oakland.” This stands out because it shows perseverance; no matter how many times the…Read More

  • Roberto,

    I agree that churches help bring together the community and help people realize the diversity in the different churches. Also that you don’t have to be a certain race to believe in a certain religion. One sentence you wrote that stood out for me was: “These events are Jubilant for the community because since it helps bring people come…Read More

  • Jennifer commented on the post, Sideshows


    I am mind blown by your blog, “SideShows” because at first I thought sideshows were dangerous and didn’t think we should continue having them, but now that I’ve read your post it made me understand how important sideshows are to Oakland residents and how it’s a part of our community. One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is:…Read More

  • Edith,

    I am in total agreement with you and your blog “Undocumented People Mark Their Spot In The USA” because, after reading your blog, I believe undocumented people feel insecure, unsafe and excluded from society and from a place other than their hometown. Instead of making them live with the constant fear of them one day leaving this country,…Read More
