Speed Thrills but Kills

We all know, as the population increases day by day, the number of people using vehicles also increases progressively. It is important to ensure that all the drivers maintain all the road safety practices and consider the safety of fellow drivers and pedestrians. Some very important practices that has to be followed by the drivers include wearing seat belts, keeping up to the speed limit, considering the board signs,avoiding distractions like phones while driving.

In most parts of the world, children aged below 18 are not allowed to drive a vehicle. If they do so, their parents will be prisoned for 3 years with a penalty and the driver will not be able to get a driver's license unless she/he is 25 years.

It is not only the minor drivers who cause accidents but also proper aged drivers. Drivers should understand that driving at high speed is not necessary but driving a vehicle safely is important.

Activities like smoking and talking through a phone during driving are risky practices as they divert the driver's concentration from the road.

Unwanted stunts during driving like drifting, half vehicle balancing might sound interesting but not safe. Usage of the road signs is also important in case of riding to avoid accidents. Most of the drivers do not even use their safety belts. Safety belts, as their name suggests are very helpful for safe driving.Just due to some careless driver on the road will also cause threat to the riders following all the rules.

One such reason for this is the carelessness of minor drivers. Underaged drivers might not have enough training in driving. This leads to carelessness and negligence in using the roads.

Drivers should always remember that their loved ones are waiting for them with hope for a safe return.

There is a simple cure for this"Low speed vehicles". It is a legal vehicle available at some parts of the world. It's top speed is 25mph while the normal four- wheeler's top speed is 220 mph. Low speed vehicles are definitely a boon for the current world. These vehicles can preventaccidents up to 40 to 50 percent.

Remember, fast drive could be a last drive.
