ACCIDENTS AND HOW TO PREVENT THEM
Lately, the statistics about fatal accidents cases have been increased greatly in number. They have become the hot issues in the newspaper. They have caused many troubles and burdens. Many loved ones have gone because of these accidents. Why accidents happen and how we can prevent them.
The main cause of the fatal accidents happen is speeding at normal roads and highways. The inconsiderate drivers always do this when they are on the road. They do not want to obey the traffic rules which is stipulated by Malaysia’s gonverment. Their action can cause deaths to many people especially kids. Other than that, some drivers are tired, sleepy and drunk when they are driving. Their action thus endangering the lives of other road users especially the motorcycle users.
Besides that, poor maintainence of vehicle also be the main cause of fatal accidents happen. As we all know that Malaysian drivers do not like to spend their money to maintain their vehicle either the skillful drivers or unskillful drivers. So, the drivers must service their vehicles to ensure that their vehicles always in good condition. Poor roads and highways conditions can cause accidents. The roads may be slippery when the weather is rainy or snowy, the vehicle may slip on other side of the roads or highways. To prevent the accidents, the goverment take an action to overhaul the roads.
The first step that we can take to prevent accidents is revise licensing procedures to 21 years old and above instead or existing 17 years old. In my opinion, the drivers may lack of knowledge and experience. They may also inefficient and unskillful drivers as they are only 17 years old, they are not matured at all. Thus, it is important for the goverment to revise the licensing procedures. Next, all of the drivers and riders must follow strictly the traffic rules and regulations, this can reduce accidents cases.
Periodic maintainence and services of vehicles and roads can prevent fatal accidents. Last but not least, regular monitoring by enforcement officers, RTD and traffic police are also important to ensure that the drivers follow the rules and the safety of roads.
In conclusion, I think that people should be more responsible when they are driving. The drivers also must change their habit and attitudes on the road. This can reduce accidents rate and save a lot of lives especially our family, friends and our loved ones. When you are driving always drive carefully and remember our loved ones at home and everything will be alright.
