Accidents: Causes and Possible Prevention
These days, accidents happen almost every day in our country. We can read about these tragic accidents in the local dailies. This issue has caused great concern to our government. It is heart breaking to see our loved ones dies to due to the driver’s carelessness and their inconsiderate attititudes. Past records have shown that most drivers are young and unexperienced. Mostly like to speed on the roads and highways. The motorcyclist too are young and inconsiderate are also adding to the fatal figures. Are we letting that figures to swell day by day? Let us have a closer look at the causes of the accident.
As told in paragraph one, speeding is the main problem for an accident to happen. Yes, people in modern life has become busier and they will always be at high speed whenever they are on the roads. Some people will accelerate even faster when seeing the orange traffic light that will cause them to beat the red one. This reckless attitude happen because of their selfishness.People these days can hardly think about ‘prevention is better than cure’ until it happens.
Accidents also happen during Aidilfitri celebration. At that period of time, families will travel for a long way in reaching their hometown. Some people might forgot to check their vehicles specially on the servicing of brakes,signal lights,tyres,clutches and many other simple items.This is because of the excitement of going back hometown. It is really dangerous when the brakes, clutches and signal lights are not working. Next, indeed to reach their destination even faster, drivers are exposing themselves on the unsatisfactory roads and highways.They have to bear with potholes,uneven roads conditions and sometimes even landslide.These are risky and may cause accidents and probably death.
Every disease got a way to cure and in this case, there are some possible preventions to decrease the numbers of these fatal accidents. Firstly, drivers must change their attitudes. They need to get on with their with a sense of integrity. They must not think it is always about them. Secondly, drivers should do regular service for their vehicles. They have to change important parts such as brakes, signal lights and clutches.These items are prone to wear and tear and failure to change them may cause them life.
The government also have to take part in this accident’s prevention. They must maintain the road condition like new. They have to repair the damage roads so that it will be easier to drive. Government should also repair and put up proper signboards to alert motorists.Regular enforcement by authorities such as massive operations done by the road transport officers and the police traffic.The government too can raise the eligibility of driving license from present 18 years old to 21 years old. This is because to avoid the unexperienced and immature drivers on the road.
Conclusively , as a concerned citizen,it is advisable for us to take precautionary measures to ensure cases of accidents to be reduced. Of course the task seems impossible but we hope the government and the public will work together to make Malaysia’s dream of decreasing accidents, a dream come true.
