The experience I will be discussing in this essay is getting into a car crash. I learned so much from this unfortunate experience, and it has affected my life for the better. It was a rainy day in St. Louis about nine years ago. My babysitter, Denise, was driving my older sister and I to a children’s museum. We got on the highway and were on our way.
He of course drove it home to save my mother and me I the anxiety, but we learned later that there was no substantial damage to the car, and my father fixed the cosmetic issues and later did exactly what he was intending to do in the first place;, he flipped it for more money than he bought it for. This was the first car accident that I have ever been in that I had some part in causing, and for some (large) amount of months following I refused to get in the driver’s seat of a car. I saw the mistake as the end of my driving career, and my mother was quite okay with me not driving. But, the rest of my family was a bit more stubborn, and I was back driving just under a year later, much to my and my mother’s dismay. Looking back on it, I don’t regret what happened or that I took so long to start driving again.
For example, one day I was driving with my sister and she was sitting in the back seat of the car. Suddenly I got a message and I just ignored it, after awhile I got a new message too. I grabbed my phone to check them and then I started reading them. I forgot about driving and all my focus was on the text that was on my cellular. Unfortunately, I crashed into two cars in front of me and my car was damaged a lot, but Luckily no one got hurt.
This topic is very controversial because not everyone agrees but all those risks you take while driving can be avoided and not using your phone while driving can save lives. People should be safer while driving because it can have a good outcome and the roads can be easier and safer to drive
Bad things happen when you try riding over your head and it did to me. I remember it like yesterday, I was in a race at Loaiza Dairy Farm and they have some labyrinth, gnarly trails there. But it wasn’t on the trail where I wrecked. It was in a wide-open field. The field was probably three
My heart breaks for those poor, innocent people who have been affected by drunk driving. I also hope that other people will not ever have to go through such a thing. Although they were in the wrong, however I still feel bad for the drunk driver because, knowing that your mistake cost someone's life is not an easy thought to process. Sadly these accidents happen all the time. But what if people stopped drinking and driving, then nobody would have to go through this
To start off, the safety of the person riding a car that runs on technology is not safe. For instance, the article, “pro/con: Is the idea of driverless cars gaining popularity”,stated if something on the road changes, the car won’t know where to go and would be lost. The car won’t know where objects on the road are. For example, objects like bits of paper garbage are harmless, but they can change the course for no reason. There are unexpected adventures if you ride a driverless car.
Also, an AAA survey showed that three out of four people would be scared to ride in a driverless car (Lane). A self-driving car cannot understand a police officer directing traffic (Auto). Also, the cars wouldn’t be able to understand people biking or running on the road. The cars see people as moving, column-shaped pixels
I was at a red light very close to the school when i had a green arrow i proceeded on driving straight until very suddenly a car had pulled out directly into the street inches in front of me, with very little time to even get my foot on the brake, i had smashed directly into the driver side of the other car. My air bag had deployed and my car was destroyed. When i had seen through the mirror that it had been to other girls in my grade, one that i had known since elementary school and another that I had seen many times
For this project, I chose texting while driving. While we all do it, it is one of the most dangerous (restatement of key words) things we can do while driving. Researching this topic has made me realize just how dangerous it is. I will be talking about how seeing a text can distract you easily, can cause you to get in a wreck, or worse kill someone, and that it is illegal. I am guilty of being distracted while driving.
