One cause of car accidents is poorly trained drivers. Drivers who don’t follow the rules of the road can be putting themselves and others at risk. For example, drivers who exceed the speed limit will have a more difficult time stopping or turning if something, such as an animal, crosses their path. In addition, there are road signs that drivers need to recognize, understand, and obey. Other drivers cannot tell how people who do not obey road signs will drive, and this unpredictability can lead to accidents.
They also are putting everyone around them in danger. This causes people to have road rage when other drivers are not paying attention to where they are going. As I drive down the road, I can’t believe how beautiful the leaves are looking. I put on my direction light to turn left into my driveway. I look in my rear view mirror and notice a silver car coming up fast behind me.
Cars with stick shifts are very fuel efficient. Cars with a stick shift will respond better to the driver which makes them safer. People who are used to shifting gears will focus more on their driving making it more efficient and safe. When a driver shifts a gear down to reduce his speed, he/she are actually saving on brake repairs. Cars with stick shifts have more power, and tend to respond better when you accelerate.
Mason was in front of me at the stop sign with one car in-between us. He was waiting for clear access to pull out and turn left. I watched as he pulled out. Simultaneously I saw him collide with another car and heard a horrific sound - metal on metal. It is a sound that I will never forget.
He was attempting to mentally stop and fight all his instincts, which were telling him to run was physically exhausting. The sound of gunfire made him turn around to face the noise coming from the other direction. His aim and torch following and raising up in unison lighting up a long dark alleyway. The gunfire had stopped as suddenly as it had started. His lips and throat were suddenly dry as he panned that small beam of light around the alleyway.
Putting other people in danger while driving is unacceptable especially under the influence of a controlled substance. Older people should frequently have their license checked and taken at an appropriate time. For example, my girlfriend’s grandfather offered to pick us up so we wouldn’t drink and drive. It was dark and late at night and he was having trouble seeing the road. Instead of telling us he was blind he proceeded to guess where the exit was and veered off the high without hesitating and crashed into a divider.
This is the tale of my new car adventure which caused me to have a wide range of emotions. It began in January when my father surprised me with an offer to help me buy a new car. This was welcome news as I had been sharing a car with my mom, and it was quite inconvenient for us both. Sadly, after we got to the dealership we found that the car I wanted was not something my budget would accommodate. The dealer was anxious to sell a car, so he mentioned that he did have a car that fit my budget, but the only potential problem was that it was a stick shift, but I really wanted this car.
Talking on the phone, or with the passengers in the car, or being on the use of drugs...etc, all leads to deadly car accidents. Whenever the driver is distracted his/her focus will not be 100% on driving. While this driver is distracted a car might pass to get to the other lane where the driver is driving and because he is not focusing he/she stays on the same speed and hits the car passing, hurting himself and the other driver. Therefore the driver should not be distracted to prevent these car accidents that could have not happened. In addition to these two causes, speeding and distractions, the less obvious cause is equipment failure.
