That will be enough questions for this assignment. The next assignment will be examining an accident that directly relates to the items you have learned in this one, so keep it handy.
For this week, you have quite a bit to do, so I do not APA formatting. Make your document good and readable for grading, and list any outside sources at the end of your document. This assignment is about getting exposed to the material and quite a bit less about APA formatting. We will get back to the APA formatting for the accident case studies.
