SPEED

There is a common saying that goes: The living close the eyes of the dead, but the dead open the eyes of the living.

speed thrills but kills The high speed limits are often causes of accidents that cause serious injuries and even death. The speed limit should be lowered so we can control accidents caused by high speed driving, pollution, and the high cost of operation and insurance.First of all it is obvious that a motorist driving over the speed limit has more chances of getting into an accident that a motorist who is traveling at the average speed. One who drives fast does not have proper and that well of a control on the vehicle as one that is moving at a safe speed or at the speed limit mark. It is true that traveling above the speed limit will save time and time is money but is it really worth it. Speed over the limit is a major factor in about two to five percent of fatalities. When driving over the limit it is hard to determine the other drivers speed, this is called the speed variance and this can cause an accident while overtaking the other vehicle.Let us look into the various reasons which make these fatal accidents. The major reason is human errors. Most of the drivers, especially of small cars are careless and negligent in using the roads.

They should understand a point that how fast they drive is unimportant but how safe they drive is very important, as someone waits for them in their respective homes - a mother or a sister or a wife or a child.

It is very common scene in small cars that most of the drivers try to light a cigarette while driving at 120 to 140 kilometers per hour. At this speed controlling a steering wheel or balancing a car is not only risky but also dangerous.

SO it is necesssary to keep the speed in limit to avoid road accident because life is very costly and u it live once

thank you
