Hi,mylotters,do you think how we can reduce the road accident? In the past five years the number of road accidents has been on the rise in big cities. Whenever they happen, the people involved are either injured or killed, which is really miserable.Some people think that is caused by the modern life. But I am sure that is just because our life is not modern enough! What if we have more private planes and highways and intelligent cars? Hi, What's your idea?

Hi there! Well, I'm not too sure about private planes since its expensive and just a few people can afford it. But I think I can see the intelligent car that you are talking about. There's this new car right now, from a very known car company, the latest innovation they offer is that their car is equipped with a sensor. Meaning that if your car's bumper is just a good safe meters away from the one you are following, and say for example you didn't notice or you fell asleep for a millisecond, the car would sense it and it would stop by itself. I think we should be making more cars like this for our safety. And another thing is that we should have a lot of infomercials to refresh the peoples awareness to road rules and road safety.

I was actually involved in a car accident four months ago and though both myself and my daughter were injured in the car accident, I have to say that both of us were lucky that the injuries that we sustained in the accident were not major injuries. As far as what I can suggest about reducing the number of car accidents that happen, I think that the most important thing is that people need to be more aware of their surroundings when they are driving. In other words, I think that people need to have fewer distractions when driving. They shouldn't be talking on cell phones when they are driving and they definitely should not be sending text messages while driving.

I think that the solution to eliminate such road accidents is to have discipline while on the road. Some drivers would not be following road courtesy which often results to cars crashing/colliding.

Accidents do happen but they do happen because of a cause. Its either there is an unsafe act or there is and unsafe condition. Accidents can be prevented for as long as the person will consider the following things I have stated above. What is really important is that we concentrate in what we do. Like in driving for example, so many things could happen but for as long as we follow safety rules and obey traffic regulations, there is less likely the possibility of suffering an accident.

Most car accidents are caused because the drivers are drunk. I think that there shall be serious punishment for the people who break the traffic laws. Such as they shouldn't be drunk when they drive. And they should wear the seat belts all the time.

Road accident happened because people have lack of disciplines. So even we had private planes or intelligent vehicles, accident still might happen. Disciplines is the key ...

For me this is just about self-disciplne and respect of traffic rules. Mostly the road accidents are caused by tolerance of the drivers. Some due to lack of info about the roads or about their vehicles, which can be resolved by them. And some accidents are caused by pedestrians who are not paying attention. But sometimes, if it's your fate, it will still happen.
