The speed limit for cars ranges from 80-120 km/h but this rule hasn’t been enforced until around a year and a half ago, a system called “saher” has been placed to ensure that all citizens drive under the speed limit yet, this system has been met with much hatred, as citizens in anger destroy the camera and speed away, despite the decrease in the number of death after the installation of this system, the death rate from car accidents is still quite high, what we need is a decrease in the speed limit even more, this will cause people to slow down and that will also decrease the probability and the risk of a car accidents. Decreasing speed limit has helped many countries, decrease the number of deaths and accident annually. When two cars collide it is important to understand that the collision is inelastic and so kinetic energy is released, as both heat and sound. Understanding the physics behind two car collision will help explain why a decrease in speed would be beneficial in
According to a latest research, it is estimated that about thirty thousand of Americans lose their lives while driving and most of these unfortunate souls are the teenagers (Markedbyteachers.com, 2013). Why this is happening in such a big number? We must all ask this question. One factor that is quite obvious is the fact that teenagers are more vulnerable towards such driving accidents mainly due to their rash driving. Should driving age be raised or not has long been a topic of discussion.
Driving age should be raised Some parents may be proud when they see their children who are still in Senior High School, even junior high school, able to drive a vehicle. But according to Law Number 22 Year 2009 on Traffic and Road Transport, the minimum age of applicant for driver 's license (SIM) is 16 years for SIM C and 17 years for SIM A. In other words, allowing minors to drive means tantamount to plunging them into a legal snare. age factor has a link to the safety context in driving, in this case is the risk of accidents while driving. The topic of ongoing debate in the world of salvation is whether the age of driving should be raised.
They do not know how to drive at night. They do not know how to drive while their friends talk to them. These restrictions prohibit realistic experiences during learning, and, consequently, young drivers become less educated on realistic situations. In fact, these restrictions daunt young drivers from pursuing a safe training, “The research still found a 10 percent increase in deadly crashes in that group after New Jersey’s graduated driver licensing program was instituted, suggesting that 18-, 19-, and 20-year-olds may be waiting out the tough restrictions,”
11 teens die every day with the result of texting and driving. 20% of teen drivers involved in fatal by texting and driving. Teen drivers are 4 times more likely to get into car crashes or near crashes when talking or texting on a cell phone. Texting while driving causes a 400% increase in time spent with eyes off the road. There are various findings in the paper which are supported by different research which correlates to the topic of the paper.
Driving and talking at the same time can introduce inattention blindness, where the driver loses focus of the road and focuses more on talking. Researchers from The Experimental Psychology Foundation say “No effect of drivers ' Tami 2 awareness toward cell phone-related disturbance on actual driving behavior monitored in the present study was found,” Research tested subjects driving while talking on the phone, and most of the subjects made accident mistake. Cellphones have become the number one distraction for college students. Introducing smart phones had a huge negative impact on the
Most teenagers look forward to getting their license and permit to be able to get behind the wheel of a car and drive without parents. The problem with this is many teenagers take advantage of that privilege and become reckless drivers. The government has put laws in place which prevents teenagers from driving alone for the first year and keeps laws in place so teenagers can’t abuse there laws. Meanwhile, many adults still argue the safety on the road even with restrictions in place. These laws are here to keep everyone on the road safe not only the new drivers.
Consequently, texting is causing; car accidents, poor grammar and punctuation, and face to face social interactions are diminishing. People throughout the world should lessen the amount they text, otherwise problems that we didn’t even know of are going to emerge. Over the years, the number of car accidents caused by texting has skyrocketed. According to Teen Drivers Cell Phone Statistics, eleven teenagers die each day because of texting and driving. Notwithstanding this bit of information, the issue is still continuing to grow.
In the article The Problem of Underage Drinking and What Parents Can Do Heidi Stevens says that most of the deaths are because of consumption of alcohol “excessive drinking is responsible for more than 4,300 deaths among underage youth each year” (Stevens 4). Drinking has lead to many problems, but deaths are probably the biggest problem that drinking has. Not only are these kids drinking illegally but there also drunk driving which is really unsafe, their putting their lives and the lives of others in danger. Another problem underage drinking leads up to is that now teens go lean to alcohol as a source when they are feeling sad or depressed, in the article Iceland’s Approach to Teen Underage Drinking- Give Them Something Better to Do Alex Pietrowski says “teens turn to drugs and alcohol as a way to cope with stress and boredom since teens’ brains are wired to crave the rush of something risky, dangerous or exiting” (Pietrowski 1). Teens tend to not see the negative side of things they now just do things for the fun of
