There have been studies that one of the main threats in road safety is actually the driver’s habits. Drivers can have dangerous habits, such as ignoring street signs and failing to yield to pedestrians. These dangerous habits place the people and the driver themselves in danger. In many cases, the driver can die from an accident caused by him or herself. Texting and driving is a serious issue that is placing lives at risk. Just a second of looking at a text, answering and making phone calls, has killed drivers and innocent pedestrians. The bad driving habits of one person can also harm another law-abiding individual who drives. People who have great driving habits have also died in car accidents because of the negligence of another driver. Driving is a privilege and people should recognize it as such. Taking careful precautions to ensure good driving and practising good driving habits will make the roads and highways safer.
