Car accidents lead to disastrous consequences as loss of life, permanent injuries, imprisonment, loss of earning etc. One of the major causes of vehicular accidents in the United States today is distracted driving. When motorists divert their attention from the road, to talk on cell phone, to send a text message or eat; they no longer watch the road. The result is an accident. The other major cause is over speeding. The highway is filled with vehicles trying to race each other. Most drivers ignore the speed limit and drive 300 mph over the limit. Speed kills and speed invites road accidents. The law for speeding has become stricter and the penalty for speeding has become stricter. Careless drivers are not only dangerous to themselves but to innocent pedestrians around them.
