To drive a motorized vehicle, such as a car, one must have major focus and a sharp mind. Within a few seconds of distraction, the driver could lose control and drive off the road or worse into oncoming traffic. The Governors Highway Safety Association says approximately fifteen percent to twenty-five percent of crashes involve some sort of distraction (Johnson, 2012). Many of these crashes involve some sort of injury or death. Even in times like now most people know the dangers of distracted driving yet do nothing to stop it.
Even more than alcohol and drug abuse, violence and suicide”. Teens are always excited to earn their license and drive out on the road for the first time, but not every time will be a success, it might also be their last. I believe that teen’s cause more car crashes because they’re new to driving and don’t know the full responsibilities to the rules of the road. There are many different scenarios that lead to car wrecks, injuries and even deaths, such as texting while operating a vehicle, under the influence, and general lack of knowledge. Texting and
The most common form of racial profiling occurs when police stop, question, and search. Although racial profiling is commonly known to happen to members of racial minorities. Its proven to happen more often to only African Americans. In 1996, a television network aired a report titled “driving while black”. In the show three younger black males, were paid to drive around a city in a Mercedes-Benz.
However, when teenagers hear about car crashes that are caused by drivers on their phones, they automatically think that this horrible car crash cannot happen to them, but it can. It can happen to everyone who are not careful and distracted easily. These rules are so important to follow if you want to be a safe and careful
Reading the statistics about the amount of crashes, injuries, and deaths that occur daily and annually really surprised me. When you get in a vehicle, you 're responsible for anything that might happen while you are driving. You might not always be able to prevent other cars crashing onto you, but you should do what you can to prevent becoming the irresponsible driver. People should learn and be reminded to drive responsibly and carefully so that they do their part in decreasing the number of crashes. Some of the statistics that surprised me were the ones concerning teens.
They must know what can happen to them right well. Teenagers are the ones who mostly get into deadly crashes it 's also very risky to just look away for a split second the driver could go into a head on collision, with another car. The statistics show that they mostly happen at night because younger people think that there is no one else on the road. Also in 1999 there were 6,368 deadly car accidents involving teen drivers and 45% of them happened at night. “But now people in 2008 the overall number dropped and 4,322 fatal crashes involved teen drivers but this time 50% of them were at night.
Drivers need to ne a good example on the road because if people who are seeking to get their license see a very good driver doing wrong, they will follow them and do it too. Research and surveys say that most people admit that using their phone while driving is their number one distraction that can bring danger on the road while driving, yet they still do it. No matter how safe, careful, or sneaky one thinks they may be with their phones, accidents can still happen and people’s safety will always be at risk. Teens and young adults already have an addiction to their phones, but seeing someone who has been driving a long time and is a very good driver will just encourage them to use it. In conclusion, texting and driving is a danger on the road towards the driver and the other innocent people proving it to be a safety issue more than a moral issue.
Fischer who was interviewed at the New York International Auto Show tells CNN Money Watch, that by looking towards new crash mitigation technology it will worn the driver if an accident is about to occur. Moreover, it will automatically hit the breaks for the driver if there is something impending. This not only explains the ways in which travelling would become safer by depending on technology, it also shows that these technological advances could go on to save lives. Not only does research show that humans are more accident prone, but when using driverless cars not only would less accidents occurs it could also lead to the prevention of accidents, for humans, on
My example of a singular explanation to a social problem is the accident rate while driving sky rocketed because of driving while intoxicated. Driving while intoxicated has cause many accidents but it is not the only reason that caused the collision rate to increase. Texting while driving is another reason the collision rate increased. Recently, it is said there are 10,550 alcohol related crashes while there were about 1.6 billion crashes caused by cell phones. Intoxication and texting while driving are the main reason collisions happen but there are many more, for example, running a stop light causes about 40 percent of the car collisions.
It’s one of those weekends when they’ve been warned that hordes of people are on the roads, and plenty of people will have been imbibing before getting behind the wheel. So what’s the harm? Who’s going to spot you among all those drunk drivers on the highway? In addition, you’d planned on catching a drive with a sober friend after hanging out together, but there are six of you and there is just one designated driver, so you offer to be the second driver in spite of your BAC. Another reason is that they have to be early to work.
Texting and answering phone calls while driving are very imminent threats to your life and others. Most states are taking this threat seriously and imposing laws to make using your phone while driving, illegal. Texting while driving is an enormous irresponsibility. When driving you 're taking everyone on the roads life in your hands, not only your own. People think "I 'm only looking down for a second.
Some states are making it illegal to using this device while driving. I fully agree with this law and it should be applied in all states in the United States. This law will make driver safer and the road safe too. Although many experienced drivers feel that they can drive and be on their device at the time. However it is impossible to give your full attention to the road while on your device.
