Background- This article talks about the statistics of traffic fatalities throughout Northwest New Jersey. The article is pretty short but it holds some pretty big statistics and a great deal of information on how traffic fatalities have been going down for over five years.
How I will use it- I will use this article in various ways especially the statistics to use what has been working to stop traffic fatalities to prove my point and bounce ideas off the article to put my own twist on ways that specifically can stop people from speeding through neighborhoods.

Background- This article talks about dangers and consequences of speeding giving examples of what could happen if you choose to speed. The article also gives an insight to what might drive people to speed in the first place. Talks about how traffic, running late, or even disregard for others/the law can be a reason for people to speed. The most important part of this article is when it mentions how you can deal with people who are like this.
How I will use it- I will use this article to improve my argument and give better in depth solutions to how I can stop speeding through neighborhoods. I will also use this article to explain better the actions that a person who is speeding can cause to the people around them especially in a neighborhood atmosphere where there can be way more harmful actions done.

Background- This article talks about experiments in a society that collects data on behavior. It also talks about the affects it can have on a society and that experiments can be very high in cost. It gives a link at the bottom to an application/data that tells you exactly what a person would be agreeing to.
How I would use it- I would use this article to maybe give a experimental idea that could be tested in neighborhoods and see how well it could work but also applying the realizations that there is cost for everything and the time it might take to get sufficient evidence if any at all.

Background- This article talks about speeding in school zones which have the same speed limit as neighborhoods which is 25 or lower. It gives five specific highlights that tell you ideas that possibly could stop speeding in school zones. It also gives really good specific number statistics about speeding and the affects each has had.
How I would use it- I would use this article in two different ways and the first way is using the specific statistics to further my argument and make it seem more realistic. The second way I would use this article is to take the ideas in the highlights section of the article and incorporate them into one or two big ideas that would be successful in stopping speeding through neighborhoods.

10. Don’t Speed in Residential Areas. (2017, December 20). Retrieved from https://www.bottlingerlaw.com/blog/dangers-of-speeding-in-a-residential-neighborhood/
Background- This article talks about the affects of speeding and what it could mean for you as the driver. It goes in depth about the penalties that a person may receive for speeding. The author really focuses on the law side of speeding, warning drivers what could happen if you decide to speed in a neighborhood.
How I would use it- I will be able to incorporate the law side into my argument which will give my argument a stronger position. I want to also incorporate the law side into my examples stating what a certain situation can cause for not only the driver but the people living in the neighborhood.
First Note: “How I Would Use It” is no longer appropriate. Presumably you’ve used it by now. So . . . “How I Used It.”
A perfectly appropriate entry for “How I Used It” is to say, “It no longer supports my thesis, so, while it informed my research, this source does not appear in my Argument.”
Scour these entries also for such language as “I will use this source to . . . ”
ONE MORE THING: Sources 3 and 4 have different descriptions but point to the same article.
MAYBE TWO MORE THINGS: The first 4 sources have some legitimacy. The rest are pretty iffy. Whatever you can do to improve your ratio of Academic/Popular sources (especially blog posts and deliberate ads for law firms) would improve your argument’s legitimacy.
Second Note: For Source #3, I copied the insanely long URL to my clipboard and then linked it to the article title. It’s a much cleaner presentation that I would appreciate if you know how to do it. (I could show you.) 🙂
