Independent Topic Six

Topic

Some people think that the automobile has improved modern life. Others think that the automobile has caused serious problems.

Topic 6 is asking us to think outside of the box. Because the automobile has become so much a part of our lives that we cannot imagine life without cars and other forms of transportation.

If this is true, then the problems that automobiles have caused have also become such a part of our lives that perhaps we cannot see the issues as clearly as we should.

So it is important in discussing this topic, to distances ourselves a little from the automobile so we can see a clearer picture.

In answering this topic, I would suggest selecting some strong examples in support of your opinion.  I think there are many on both sides and there should be no problem in coming up with at least 3 good ones.  Personal experiences are strong and are easier to write/speak about than ones you have read or heard about.
