Become a Better Driver
In every major city accidents happen in which people are injured or killed. These unintended injurious events are caused by a “mistake” made by the parties involved (Hughes). Many people are good drivers, but it would be good for people to learn to be better drivers. It will help people if they have to retake their license test when they renew their license. This will help them follow the road rules, be more respectful to other drivers, and avoid other distractions while driving.
If people follow the road rules, they will learn to become better drivers. There are many different rules that drivers have to learn in order to get their license. If they follow the same rules they learned in the beginning, then there shouldn’t be as many wrecks today as there are. If everyone has to retake their license test when their license expires, then that will help them remember the road rules. An article states, “U-turns account for over 19 deaths and 654 serious crashes between the year 2004 and 2008” (Road Safety). Recently there have been some changes in the road rules because there have been so many wrecks. In, “Five Thousand Teenagers Die Annually in Crashes” it states, “In 2004, more than 2,500 teens were in fatal crashes because of failing to yield or veering out of their lanes” (Hughes). Mistakes like this cause a lot more crashes. So it is important the people retake the license test so they learn to become better drivers so not so many accidents happen.
Drivers should learn to be more respectful toward other drivers. When driving, people don’t pay attention to other drivers. Such as at four way stops you need to make sure you wait until it’s your turn to go. Don’t just go because you don’t feel like waiting. “Intentionality can be seen in a range, from deliberate carelessness (hope no one gets hurt) to recklessness (too bad for them if they don’t get out of the way)” (Hughes)....
