    How to use "Contend" in context?

    It was the summer of 2007. I was sixteen years old and I had my driver's license. My parents were ecstatic and my friends were bragging rights. I quickly learned that with a license comes responsibility, especially when it came to safety. I quickly enrolled in driver's ed and got my learner's permit. I then got my full driver's license. The summer passed quickly and I was eager to get back to school and practice driving. I was looking forward to the upcoming fall semester when I would have my driving test.

    One evening shortly after I got my driver's license, I was driving home from picking up a pizza.
