The Number of car accidents is increasing annually. This is the result of poor driving skills. Do you agree or disagree? Give reasons for your answer and include any relevant examples from your own knowledge or experience.
Many people believes that lack of driving skills is the reason behind increase in the number of car accidents. In my opinion, not only poor driving skills, but lot of other factors are responsible. In this essay, I’m discussing two major reasons.
First reason is failure to follow traffic rules. Traffic is increasing rapidly, and driving skills of drivers are failing to cope-up with it. One should have very good driving skills to drive in heavy traffic. There are lot of driving challenges in heavy traffic, such as Changing of lane, maintaining legal speed limit, pulling over, take over, etc. The driving test should be made more rigorous so that driving skills of an individual can be tested in extreme conditions. Driving license should be renewed yearly.
Second major reason is poor road conditions. surveys done in the past shows that apart from poor driving skills, poor road conditions are also equally responsible for car accidents. Many national and state highways are in very bad condition. Pot holes, rough surfaces are the common issues faced by commuters, especially in rainy season. The build quality of some roads is poor, if it rains heavily, road gets washed away. The quality of road material should be inspected carefully & strictly by government officials. No matter how good driving skills are, if the road conditions are poor, chances of accident are very high.
We cannot deny that Poor driving skills causes lot of car accidents but, there are other reasons as well, which are held to be responsible.
