Going too fast for road conditions is at fault for a huge chunk of teenage accidents. Many teenagers don’t understand that the speed limit is the suggested
Speed limits also help with people around knowing what is going on . There can be kids at play and a car speeding can hit them. It lets the parents know about what is going on around. The person driving to fast can miss there turn .Or a person driving to fast and hurry up and turns can rec into a house.
First of all, “13,000 lives lost each year due to speeding” and “39% male drivers, age 15 -20 were speeding at the time of their fatal vehicle crash” “(Dangers of Speeding While Driving)”, it’s important to know about this statistics because many people need to give speeding a second thought, they don’t understand what is going on around them, they only care about getting to their destination but often forget about increase risk of getting in a car accident or causing death. As far as defense driving goes, 94% of human’s errors are responsible for all crashes which proves that defensive driving is important if you don’t drive unsafely, it can cause serious crashes, injuries, or even death. With that in mind, “. Drivers cannot control what other people on the road are going to do, so it’s important that they put themselves in a solid position to avoid the consequences of any risky actions others may take” (“The Importance of Defensive Driving and Safety”). Lastly, not following the rules of the road, speeding and misinterpreting the concept of defensive driving can increase the number of car crashes and deaths and put lives at
Our screens today can help us achieve tasks that would seem impossible. With just a few clicks, we can see relatives half way across the world, or we can entertain ourselves with downloaded movies or play games on the countless amount of applications their are available on the app store. However too much screen time can lead to a society described like the one in Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Where they have too much technology so they just stare at their televisions all day long. In reality however, Bradbury 's feared society, is coming closer to a reality.
My essay is about why imposing speed limits is important. First, speed limits keep people from speeding, especially on the freeways. If drivers are driving at 90 m.p.h. it puts everyone around them in danger. The Department of Transportation has researched why driving at 70 m.p.h. is not only safer, but more reasonable. People aren’t equipped to negotiate unexpected events, like a deer that darts into the road and or other obstructions that may arise. Someone who is speeding excessively is driving recklessly. Every person on the road is in immediate danger because of that driver. That is why a posted speed limit is essential to keeping everyone who drives on the interstate highways safe.
As stated before the DDC 4 course guide says, "Thirty-two percent of motor vehicle fatalities involve speeding (DDC4, p. 25). Driving any amount over the posted speed limit is very dangerous, because exceeding the limit gives the driver little reaction time to respond to dangerous situations. Knowing and being aware of the posted speed limit is key to safe driving. But, you do not always have to go the exact posted speed limit. At times, there are conditions that propose slower speeds. Assessing the conditions around you help to keep yourself as well as others around you safe. Speeding always increases the number of fatalities in collisions. Things to do to avoid fatality include: use time management, monitor your speeding, be careful and stay alert, and slow down according to the situations around you. Driving too fast for conditions usually contribute to traffic violations. Knowing that speeding is most often in correlation to fatalities is a huge eye-opener. Therefore, overall avoiding speeding and driving too fast reduces the chances for a fatality to
Thousands of people die each year from auto accidents. Many deaths caused by speeding leave families devastated. “Speeding accidents about as popular as drinking and driving accidents” (Boyles). Speed limits is supposedly what keeps us safe while out on the road. Many people think that they do not need to follow the speed limit signs. An opinion would be that speed limits should stay the same speed or even go down. Teenagers seem to like the high speeds. Teenagers are the ones who are most likely to be the ones speeding in today’s society because they think it is “cool” to speed. In today's world, some vehicles can not travel at high speed rates. No matter how old there are people feel the urge to not obey the roadway laws, which therefore kills thousand of people each year. Many factors go into the dangers of speeding including vehicles not being able to handle the high speeds, driver's reaction time,
“Only the good die young,” is an aphorism that most have heard, but why is it that the leading cause of death in young people is vehicle accidents? The fact of the matter is that teens, for many reasons, are involved in more fatal crashes than any other age group. Teen driver safety, or the lack thereof, is very problematic in the state of Missouri; teens die senselessly every day due to this problem, and most cases could be prevented if people simply became more knowledgeable.
Driving can be frustrating. It doesn 't matter when, where, or what but its frustrating. An issue that needs to be addressed is Arizona drivers who drive slow in the fast lane. Little do they know this adds extra danger as well as frustration to the equation. Slow drivers are way to common. Some people at some point have had a run in with a slow driver. Even though driving slowly is not a crime, it frustrates us. The reason this paper is being written is not to bag on slow drivers, but to make slow drivers who specifically drive slow in the fast lane about the danger that them doing this can cause. I understand that some people might think, "what 's the problem
Slide Two : The first risk I will be looking at is joyriding. Joyriding is defined as taking a car out for a ride without the vehicle owner 's permission. These are usually full of danger as the cars go very fast, beyond the speed limit.
Raising the speed limits would benefit the society in many different perspectives. For example is we went into business and industrial production. On highways and long freeways, large factory transportation vehicles, trucks and lorries are forced by law to drive on a specific speed limit that does not exceed 50mph. If we raised this speed limit for trucks and lorries to approximately 60 or even 65mph wouldn’t our economy produce
There are many different causes and effects of speeding, most of them which are negative. Speeding can not only effect you, but everyone around you. All of these effects can easily be avoided by not speeding no matter the reasons of what caused you to
A tragic motor vehicle event occurred in January of 2018 in Las Vegas that lead to safety concerns and the question - are driving licenses given too easily and should this right be given an extensive right to obtain? An implausible story highlighted a speeding driver who was under the influence of drugs (marijuana) and proceeded to his car being smashed into a building 60 feet up in the air. Local police confirmed that 2 people were inside the car at the time (who’s names have not been disclosed). Both individuals did survive the insane crash. Authorities such as The Orange County Fire Authority and The Santa Ana Police Department confirmed using CCTV cameras that the driver had hit a centre divide which therefore projected the car into the building wall. Authorities also confirmed that the vehicle was traveling upwards of 150 miles per hour (mph) in a 60-mph zone. Shocking pictures upon police arrival showed the vehicle glued into the wall with tons of debris dispersed on the ground. The removal process entailed the use of a crane which was appointed by officials to evacuate the facility, and create a safe environment for businesses and the street to be open again to the public. This distressing event beseeches the question to the individual and society about what effect the taken drugs had on the brain to impact thought processes and functionality. As well, why would someone take a risky approach especially while driving in a state that does not meet the due diligence of a
Speed limits are vital to ensure people’s safety, both the driver’s and surrounding pedestrians.The most common cause of road accidents are because of speeding. The higher speed increases the chance of an accident. Enforcing speed limits may help prevent accident that occur on roads. Statistics show the Each year over 700 people are killed in crashes involving someone exceeding the speed limit. (RoSPA, 2012) According the WHO, For every 1km/h reduction in average speed, there is a 2% reduction in the number of crashes.
Traffic congestion is a condition on convey networks that occurs as use increases, and is characterized by more gradual speeds, longer trip times, and incremented vehicular queueing. The most mundane example is the physical utilization of roads by conveyances. When traffic demand is great enough that the interaction between conveyances slows the haste of the traffic stream, this results in some congestion. As demand approaches the capacity of a road (or of the intersections along the road), extreme traffic congestion sets in. When conveyances are plenarily ceased for periods of time, this is colloquially kenned as a traffic jam or traffic snarl-up. Traffic congestion can lead to drivers becoming frustrated and engaging in road rage.
