How Does Politics Impact You?

Politics can quickly become confusing, so it can be easy to say 'why should I try and understand it, it doesn't impact me?' 

However, politics impacts all of us and the things we do every single day, often in small ways that we don't always realise. Politics has the potential to change the way we live our lives both now and for generations to come, so it really is important that we all understand and have our say on politics.

Have you driven a vehicle?

There are laws about what speed you can drive on different roads, as well as various other rules for driving. If you break these laws, you could face a fine or even time behind bars. These rules and the range of penalties for breaking them are put into law by politicians.

Politicians also play a role in deciding what roads are built and developed.
