The road is a dangerous place.
No matter how careful we are, there is always a risk of death. Every year in America, about 40,000 people lose their lives on the road, and 4.4 million people are seriously injured and require medical assistance.
Maybe these numbers sound small to you compared to the total number of people in the United States. Consider that it’s like all the people of Alabama getting hurt.
Worst of all, the number one cause of death for children is precisely from car accidents. Because someone had to drive faster than the speed limit? Because someone had to get behind the wheel drunk? Is it worth a child’s life or permanent disability?
So the answer to this question would be: act responsibly!
It is good to know some facts:
How much time do we need to look at a mobile phone? How long do we need to change the radio station? Shall we write a message?
Did you know that if you drive at a speed of 40 mph, the car will travel 21 yards in just one second. IN JUST ONE SECOND. You never take your eyes off the road. This is the number 1 reason for traffic accidents.
The next thing that is devastating is excessive speed. Do you know how much time you save if you drive fast? Almost none. Unless you drive long distances. Is it worth risking your life to save a few minutes of time?
And you need to know is that alcohol affects our perception and reaction time. First of all, alcohol is very harmful to our health. Drinking and driving can also be harmful to other people’s health. Don’t let the party end at the hospital or the cemetery.
We all think that if we break the rules of behavior on the road, nothing will happen. This is exactly why so many traffic accidents happen.
No matter how careful we are and follow the rules. We can get into a car accident. Isn’t that enough risk? That is why it is important to raise the awareness of all drivers so that we all live to old age in good health.
