We all hear about the problems on the road now a days, either in school or from our parents or family member, however I think that many teenagers don’t realize what a danger driving can be. In Oman on average 3 people die every 2 day from car crashes, that’s 547 people a year!
Now we know that car accidents happen and we can’t prevent them completely, however it is disappointing to know that many of the accidents happen because of inappropriate driving and a lack of respect for other drivers on the road.
I think I speak for everyone who acknowledges and understands this problem when I say we are tired of losing our loved ones because someone felt like driving too fast. I’d like to share something with the new drivers out there someone said this to a friend of mine and knocked some sense into him I can’t quote the person on it because I don’t remember what he said word for word but this is how it went, “why do you like driving so fast, do you not know what the consequences could be for your actions, firstly endangering yourself and the person in the car with you plus possibly killing the people you crash into could you live with that? That is if you survive and what about your family do you want them cry for days and days because you were foolish on the road?”
I would ask that the new drivers take that into consideration the next time they feel like speeding. Because on the road it’s your decision whether you choose safety or suicide.
