If you consider driving then the problem gets even worse. Drinking and driving is a one of the biggest problems when it comes to driving and it is against the law. Every injury and death caused by drunk driving is totally preventable. Although the percentage of crashes that are alcohol-related has dropped dramatically in recent years, there are still way too many preventable accidents. Unfortunately, in spite of great progress, alcohol-impaired driving remains a serious national problem that tragically affects many victims on a yearly basis.
People start to curse and get all infuriated. Also, I have seen car accidents from people just driving straight into the slow driver’s car. Safe driving rules state that the right lane is for slower moving vehicles and the left lane is the passing lane. You might think that this is just a belief and not reality but from outside research it’s awfully realistic. It’s such a problem that legislators are stepping in and trying to pass bills and laws.
16 year olds are also proven to get into numerous accidents and they can get distracted at the wheel. 16 year olds get into the most car collisions; they even at times cause deaths. Usually their own life tragically and sometimes their friends or a complete stranger sometimes. These kids are too young they are a bit naive. If a friend asked them to race there is a 50/50 chance that they would say yes and that is extremely dangerous.
The Loss of loved ones; loss of important family members and loss of friends resulting from irresponsible drunk drivers on the road are tragic and permanent. Drunk driving is like playing with fire because most of the time, the drunk drivers think they are suitable for driving. Unfortunately, the liquor already affects their minds, they do not care about themselves and other people’s lives, and that is not only selfish but a deadly combination. You have no right to let anyone else suffer from the consequence of your action especially innocent bystanders and their loved ones. One of the biggest causes of drunk driving is the person who hasn’t adequately prepared for the situation.
There are many similarities and differences between texting while driving and drinking while driving. Some of these differences and similarities would have to be that they both are illegal, they both impair the driver and they both cause accidents, injuries and death. Please let me remind you that they are both very dangerous and many people do them both every day. However, one can be more dangerous than the other, but I let you, the reader, decide which one is the most dangerous based upon the comparison and contrast I will make regarding texting while driving and drinking while driving. Both texting while driving and drinking while driving is illegal in all the United States.
Zach Toups 3/26/12 Drinking Age Stays Drivers aged 16 to 20 who are intoxicated while driving are twice as likely to be involved in a fatal crash as drinking drivers who are 21 or older. Drinking and driving is dangerous to anyone who chooses to do so. Drinking alcohol also affects ones capability when it comes to any type of work; whether that’s school or a career. A recent study shows that male teens that drink heavily tend to complete fewer years of education compared to males who do not. The drinking age should NOT be lowered from 21 to 18 years of age.
Texting while driving has become a major cause of accidents, especially among young drivers. When texting, you are too focused on your conversation instead of the road. This not only puts the driver of the vehicle is harms way; it creates an unsafe environment for all those in and around the automobile. Is a text message really that important? I highly believe that texting while driving should be illegal.
On average, drivers spend more than half their time driving engaged in distractive behavior. Most of the drivers on the road, about 94%, would agree that sending e-mails or text messages while driving is not acceptable and about 87% of drivers support laws against reading, typing or send text messages or e-mails while driving. But unfortunately in this day in age, multi-tasking is simply just a fact of life; everyone will face constant demand for their time, and will feel the need to juggle more things at once now than ever before. And the bad part of that is people try to multi-task while driving, and that is never a good idea (AAA foundation). Another concern in many different communities around the United States is the distracted teen driver, not just the adult.
You can run red lights or as simple as swerving off to the side into another vehicle. Texting while driving can cause many accidents. The accidents can end by you permanently damaging yourself or even killing yourself just by trying to text even a couple words. While driving and trying to send a text can take you 4.6 seconds looking at the phone and in that time it covers a whole football field when going 55mph. Texting while driving is one of the most deadly dangerous things you can do even if it doesn’t seem like it.
If I could create a new law it would be no texting or calling while driving. Texting while driving can be very dangerous, and has already resulted in the deaths and injuries of countless numbers of drivers. Calling while driving has also had many of the same results as texting while driving which is why I think that should not be allowed as well. This new law should be passed because drivers will be less distracted, it could save many lives, and it would be safer for everyone. Texting or calling while driving can be one of the most dangerous distractions, and the could both lead to death or injury.
