SCHOOL BUS IS A GOOD SAFETY OPTION
School buses are one of the largest mass transit programs in the United States. The best choice for safety is allowing your child to ride the school bus. According to the Transportation Research Board of the National Academy of Sciences, every year, an average of 800 school-aged children are killed as passengers in other motor vehicles, walking, or riding bicycles, during school transportation hours.
SOLUTIONS TO DRUNK DRIVING
Intoxication is common in any party or social event. This is especially dangerous for teens who are participating in these events. After a night of enjoyment, teens tend to forget the hazards of drinking while driving and have to learn to face the consequences – the hard way.
An easy way to avoid drunk driving accidents and be able to enjoy social events with a tolerable amount of alcohol in your system, without foregoing your own safety, is to find a designated driver. A designated driver is someone whom you can trust to not have an intake of alcohol as they will be the one tasked to drive you and your other companions home.
Reports have found that by having designated drivers, an average of 40,000 lives are saved and thousands of people are spared from suffering life-threatening injuries.
HOW TO SPOT RAGING DRIVERS
Here are some ways to identify raging drivers:
- Cutting others off in a lane
- Rude gestures (e.g. showing someone the finger or a mean face)
- Shouting verbal abuses and threats
- Aggressive usage of the brake then gas in a repetitive to agitate other drivers
The best way to deal with this kind of drivers is to ignore them and pretend nothing happened. Confronting them will only fuel their aggressive behavior and possibly result in unpleasant outcomes.
