Evidence: With that being said, in these harsh conditions parts will wear faster, causing more breakdowns. B. Explanation: In harsh conditions such as poor roads or no roads at all, parts that wear faster are, for example, tires, belts, bearings, and engine components that can cause a major breakdown. With my help though, these problems can be resolved quickly. Extra Topic Sentence: To be able to fix the vehicles, replacement parts are necessary A.
In addition to that, driverless cars will play an enormous role in clearing up the roads. However, a section of people believe that the new technology would have pertinent ethical concerns besides presenting possible hacking vulnerabilities. This paper shows that the technology’s ability to significantly guarantee road safety makes it an exceptional technology, which should be embraced. Perhaps, more significant is the fact that driverless cars have the potential to significantly reduce the number of accidents witnessed on public roads (Keating, 2015). This is mainly attributed to the fact that ninety per cent of current road accidents come as a result of human errors such as drunken driving and obstruction (Keating, 2015).
Traffic updates not only detail the fastest routes available, they indicate, for example, where accidents have occurred, and where slowdowns are happening. Routes will be determined that help drivers avoid congestion, detours, or construction areas that will delay their arrival at an emergency scene. The information for GPS navigator is provided from a variety of sources, that give a real-time simulation of the current traffic flow. Rerouting possibilities are continuously available as the GPS tracking system continues to receive and analyze traffic updates providing optimal routes to the destination
Software technicians could have the ability to update software overtime. While technicians update software over time, it will improve road safety dramatically. This will fix the problem of having glitching and common issues occurring in the vehicle’s hard drive programming. While a software issue that could be solved by fixing bugs and glitches another major disadvantage in the self driving cars is that they are designed for simple driving tasks. The same author, Alex Boutilier argues “Driving is a complex task, and automated vehicles still need to be improved on their ability to read traffic signs and signals, anticipate the actions of other road users, and negotiate challenges like construction and unmarked or snow-covered roads” (Boutilier), further briefing that small common issues could be fixed pretty fast with an update but an issue like understanding street signs or unmarked scenarios is more complex and a bigger deal to the passenger’s
Railroads are a very serious issue when driving, but commonly ignored. Many know that railroads are dangerous, but they only consider railroads dangerous if you are caught in the middle of one with a train coming towards you. It is dangerous to be in a situation where you are stuck in the middle of a railroad with a train bolting towards you, but there are ways to avoid this life threatening situation. Signs are a very important part to be safe when crossings are presented. Coming to a railroad crossing is not a sudden ‘surprise’, there are signs posted to indicate the crossing, usually there is a yellow, circular sign with a black X painted on the inside with two letter ‘Rs’ on the left and right side of the X.
When you partake in these actions, you are putting yourself and others at risk for injury and possible death. Alcohol and drugs are capable of impairing your motor skills, reaction time and judgment, and can also affect your depth and distance perception. All of these skills are crucial for driving safely; hence, driving under the influence is utterly treacherous and detrimental to your well-being. As well as putting yourself and others at risk, driving while under the influence also has serious legal consequences. Incarceration, impounding of your vehicle, and revocation of your driver’s license are all possible repercussions of drinking and driving.
Driver distractions can contribute to lane departure crashes and collisions with other vehicles on the road, which may lead to serious injuries and deaths of individuals involved. The development of new technologies has allowed manufacturers to equip their vehicles with collision warning and avoidance systems in the areas of frontal, blind spot, and accidental lane departure collisions. These systems detect problems that a distracted driver may not spot, so they can aid distracted drivers in avoiding collisions, and injuries and deaths as a result.1 Frontal collision, blind spot monitoring, and lane departure warning systems use a combination of radars, lasers, and cameras to detect and process road markers and vehicles surrounding the vehicle
Self driving cars should be legal starting will taxi-like services because it will help society by reducing traffic, prevent accidents, and will provide a way for disabled and blind people to get to work easily. Self driving cars will reduce accidents. In the circumstance one does get into an accident, it will not be too catastrophic . "To prove that an automated driving system performed unreasonably, an injured plaintiff would likely
Some argue that before texting and driving became illegal, motorists didn’t have to hide the activity. Since it is now illegal, people keep their phones hidden, which makes them take their eyes off of the road completely to send a text. This logic is faulty though. They are basically saying that it shouldn’t be illegal because people will still do it; however, if there were a severe enough punishment to go along with the crime then people would be much less inclined to do it. Strict laws banning cellular use whilst driving have already helped prevent distracted driving related car accidents.
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.
