Meet Our Spring 2019 Winner
When an individual gets into his or her vehicle to take a simple trip to work or school, they never know how dangerous it can be out on the road. Every day there are nearly 3,287 deaths and around 20-50 million individuals who are injured or disabled a year due to vehicle accidents. (“Road Safety Facts”) Not only are there drivers who may become easily distracted, but there are also other factors that contribute to road safety such as the condition of the roads and weather.
Being a teen and college student, I am very familiar with the problems that occur on the road. Only a few years ago, I took my first drive as a licensed driver. Being a newly licensed driver can come with so many nerves and could take some time to get used to. In that time, one not only learns to drive around others but also learns to watch how the others drive that are around him or her. Using proper road safety not only helps new drivers as I once was, but it also helps elderly drivers who may not have as quick of a reaction as someone of a younger age. While driving to and from school, I realized how important road safety and signs are, especially when in unfamiliar areas and new environments. Even when there is hazardous weather, road signs and awareness could save many lives.
