You seem them every day on TV or the Internet. You hear about them from friends or colleagues. You know people who were involved in them. Yet, you still do not think they can happen to you. I am talking about car crashes, which often lead to severe injuries, damage of properties, and even deaths. Car accidents occur when a car collides with another car, pedestrian, wall and so on. These crashes are not only a danger for the driver, but also for the other traffic participants. This is why people need to take car crash videos seriously. These videos should ring an alarm, since people need to wake up and realize that if they do not drive carefully, they can get involved in a crash anytime.
The most common causes of car crashes include spending, drinking, careless behavior, old age, lack of focus, road design, poor eye sight, and vehicle problems. The worst part is that many people who get involved in car crashes have no fault. They just drive and mind their own business, when a speeding lunatic crushes into them. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, about 6.5 million car accidents occur every year in the United States. The monetary cost for these accidents is around 250 billion dollars. Approximately 3.2 million people are injured and 45,000 people are killed every year in the U.S. due to car collisions. Moreover, experts estimate that 125 people in the United States died every day from car accidents, which is the equivalent of approximately 1 death every 12 minutes. In the United States, drivers are required to have car insurance to help cover the cost of many unexpected damages and injuries on the road.
Since many drivers rely on the insurance, they have no problem driving irresponsibly. They simply assume that the insurance company will take care of the rest. What if the car crash they have caused results in someone getting severely injured or losing their lives? What will the insurance company do about that? Or better said, what the police will do about that, since the careless driver will have to pay for what s/he did. Car crash videos should be watched to learn a lesson. Even though many young people (especially men) love watching car crash videos just for fun, they should realize that the way they act behind the wheel can lead to serious consequences that no one can predict.
