Task 1: Mixed (Table & Pie)
The pictures show information about average income and spending on food and clothes by an average family in a city in the UK.
The table illustrates how much money an average family in a UK city earned and paid for food and clothes, while the pie charts represent the proportion of spending on those categories in 2010 and 2013.
It is clear that while the total income of an average British family decreased between 2010 and 2013, the amount of money spent on food and clothing increased. It can also be seen that British people spent much more money on food than on clothes in both years.
Looking at the table in more detail, in 2010, an average British family earned £29,000, which was significantly higher than the amount they spent on goods. Three years later, the average income of a family in Britain decreased to about £25,000, while there was a growth of £1,000 in the expenditure for food and clothing, from £14,000 to £15,000 during the given period.
Regarding the pie charts, the percentage for spending on meat and fish was highest of all categories in 2010, at 29%, but three years later experienced a drop to 23%. Similarly, a downward trend was seen in the proportion of money used to buy clothing, from 15% to 13% in 2013. On the other hand, people seemed to spend more money on fruit, vegetables, and dairy products as the figures of 2013 went up to 30% and 16% respectively. During the same period, the proportion of spending on food remained unchanged at exactly 18%.
The only way to improve safety of our roads is to give much stricter punishments on driving offenses. What extent do you agree or disagree?
Nowadays, an increasing number of people are concerned about measures to ensure road safety. However, whether imposing stricter penalties for driving offenses is the only way to protect people is still a controversial issue. Although I agree that harsher punishments can act as an effective way to deter people from committing road offenses, I believe that there are better methods to protect commuter’s welfare.
Firstly, it is obvious that the implementation of rules can change people’s attitudes toward violating laws. This means that if a driver is punished when he breaks a road rule, he will be in fear of gaining further punishment and avoid re-committing his offense. In addition, those who witness people receiving penalties may also realise the downsides of violating the laws and are unlikely to commit the same offence.
Furthermore, more severe punishments for traffic-related crimes can deter traffic accidents efficiently. For example, in the past, China witnessed a significant number of road casualties annually when it had very loosely enforced regulations. However, the once harsher laws related to road safety were implemented in 2009 there was a notable reduction in the total number of traffic accidents.
This is not to say that only by using stricter rules can we enhance the safety of our road. It is true that there are still other effective measures to ensure peoples safety, such as heightening people’s awareness through TV programs about the negatives of committing driving offenses or promoting the use of public transport systems such as buses or trains. To achieve the best results, the most effective method may be to combine all the aforementioned ideas.
In conclusion, in my opinion, stricter punishment is not the only way to deal with driving offenses. Measures including raising awareness and promoting the use of public transport systems can also contribute to maintaining road safety.
