Pendahuluan
Dalam laporan akhbar harian, saban hari kita sering didedahkan dan disajikan dengan berita kemalangan jalan raya yang menyayatkan hati sama ada di dada akhbar mahupun di kaca televisyen. Walaupun OPS Sikap XIII sempena Aidilfitri baru-baru ini berjaya mengurangkan kes kemalangan maut daripada 213 kes kepada 203 kes, namun statistik masih menunjukkan bahawa kemalangan keseluruhan pada tahun ini meningkat sebanyak lima peratus berbanding tahun lalu. Statistik juga menunjukkan satu per empat kemalangan yang terjadi di Malaysia ialah kemalangan yang melibatkan kenderaan berat dengan lori menyumbang 18.1 % dan bas menyumbang 2.3 % daripada keseluruhan jumlah kemalangan di Malaysia. Berikut adalah statistik kemalangan jalan raya bagi tahun 2003 hingga 2007. Tahun | 2003 | 2004 | 2005 | 2006 | 2007 | Jumlah Kemalangan | 50,864 | 47,080 | 39,716 | 29,258 | 27,645 | Injuri | | | | | | Kemalangan | 37,415 | 33,413 | 25,928 | 15,596 | 13,979 | Ringan | | | | | | Kemalangan | 7,163 | 7,444 | 7,600 | 7,375 | 7,384 | Parah | | | | | | Jumlah | 8,286 | 6,223 | 6,188 | 6,287 | 6,282 | Kematian | | | | | |

Mengikut statistik Ops Sikap Polis Diraja Malaysia (PDRM) daripada tahun 2007 sehingga tahun 2011 pula, jumlah kemalangan meningkat secara mendadak daripada jumlah 14,930 sehingga 17,288 pada musim perayaan. Perangkaan nahas jalan raya pada tahun lepas pula menunjukkan sebanyak 3,693 penunggang dan pembonceng motosikal meninggal dunia dengan jumlah kes kematian paling tinggi berlaku di jalan-jalan Persekutuan, iaitu sebanyak 1,316 kes.

Walaupun pelbagai usaha telah dilakukan oleh banyak pihak untuk mengurangkan kemalangan jalan raya, namun usaha-usaha itu bagaikan sia-sia sahaja. Kita akan membincangkan punca-punca dan kesan-kesan kemalangan jalan raya serta langkah-langkah untuk mengurangkan kemalangan jalan raya.…...

Accident

...Heena Lal An Accident                 It was a breezy Saturday afternoon. The clouds covered the sun and bought great harmony into the air. I was a young girl about the age of 10 and was standing on the terrace located on the top of the house. I was smiling and enjoying every moment that went through. Yet, I did not know what game fate would play with me that day, and what choice of.              I was walking around the huge terrace and observing what everyone else was doing because I had nothing better to do. I was mostly companied by people older than me and almost all of them were my relatives. A few were my cousin’s friends. I could view other terraces from the top my terrace and people all around gathered together because it was some kind of celebration. They were lighting all kinds of spectacular fireworks and smoke was everywhere. Everyone on my terrace got the chance to light the fireworks except me since I was so young. So I went and asked one of my cousins for a small firework that was not dangerous for me. I was allowed to light a small firework and hold it until it burned out by itself. I happily ran around the terrace with the firework in my hand. The terrace was so huge so I went from corner to corner. I was mindful not to get too close to an opening about twelve feet down in the terrace. The big square opening lead to another house and the chickens were kept in that little area. It had walls around it but there were no stairs connecting to the terrace......

Bike Accident

...friends while riding their bikes. Do we all get the answers we want? The next question to my mind is why are police authorities concerned about people driving their bikes in midnight when there isn’t any kind of traffic on the roads and why do police let these people do what they want. The answer to this comes here: Delhi is a city with young boys in whom there’s a rush as to things they find attracting and things which they consider would provide them with a big man’s popularity. Do all Stuntmen want to become Craig Jones? Under the section 189, Motor Vehicle Act: Racing or speeding in any public place without any written consent of the state government SHALL be punishable with term of 6 months imprisonment and repeating the same offence could lead to further trouble. Basically, the roads have been full of illegality and such kind of Violations and now we all rise up to this issue. Why?? Considering the fact that such illegality won’t be tolerated its completely up to us are we ready to borne the punishment or follow the norms that society has created for us. The newly created Buddh circuit has been created for people to ride their vehicles in whichever way they want, leading to certain safety for people to walk on the roads and for lesser accidents on our streets. However as stated By the police in the incident reported on 28th july,2013 the pillions were under the influence of alcohol and such incidence have occurred in the past where the pillions who have been caught......

Accident

...A Traffic Accident Everyone has received a gift they’ve appreciated and enjoyed at least once in his or her life. When I was young, I had always wanted to get a Ford Mustang as it has been my favorite car. To my luck, my mother was able to afford one and got it as my graduation gift. it was black and blue it had tinted windows and a spoiler. I was 21 years old and had my drivers license for 6 years already.  I was so happy. I had a new car and I was going to drive it. People would comment how nice my car was including family and friends. One starless night at around 9pm I was driving home from my boyfriend Maikel’s house at 30mph when it happened. I never thought I was going to go through such a terrible experience. And an experience I wasn’t going to forget.  I had an accident. Mario ran a stop sign & crashed me. Since he was speeding my car went in circles about 4 times. While it was going in circles it hit the Mario’s car. I was conscious the whole time while inside the car. I was really scared and worried. All I could say was “Oh my god!“ I felt something else hit my car while it was spinning. It was the other car that it hit. As a result Mario’s car got inside the patio of the corner house. My car stopped in front of a palm tree.  When the car came to a complete stop the driver’s and passenger’s airbag popped out. I saw white smoke coming out of the motor of the car. I thought. “I have to get out the car is going to go on fire.” I tried opening the door but...

Traffic Accident

...Nowadays traffic accidents in United States become a worse problem resulting in many deaths, injured, disabilities and damage to both private and public property. According to data from National Committee for Road Traffic Safety, in 2007 the total number of traffic accidents increased to 9449 cases, which killed 1545 persons, injured 24815. This makes traffic accident and death rates in United States are higher. Traffic accidents are caused mainly by drinking, speeding, and cars going off-road while drivers failed to use car’s facilities properly, especially, disobeying the traffic laws. Drunk Driving is not only illegal, but completely preventable. Alcohol-impaired driving is a serious national problem that unfortunately affects many victims yearly. Often, people believe they feel well enough to drive after drinking only a small amount of alcohol. They should be careful not to drive even if they slightly intoxicated after the party. A slight intoxication can reduce one’s response time to maneuver a vehicle. For example, alcohol causes the body to relax and sometimes can blur one’s vision. While in a car, it takes longer for some intoxicated drivers to slow down or to see what cars and obstacles may be in front, behind, or on either side of them. Moreover, Seat safety belts are designed to reduce injuries by stopping the driver from hitting hard elements inside of the vehicle. By not wearing a seat belt, they are also putting their self......

Car Accident

...My First Car Accident Disappointment, disbelief and fear filled my mind as I lie on my side, sandwiched between the cold, soft dirt and the hot, slick metal of the car. The weight of the car pressed down on the lower half of my body with monster force. It did not hurt, my body was numb. All I could feel was the car hood's mass stamping my body father and farther into the ground. My lungs felt pinched shut and air would neither enter nor escape them. My mind was buzzing. What had just happened? In the distance, on that cursed road, I saw cars driving by completely unaware of what happened, how I felt. I tried to yell but my voice was unheard. All I could do was wait. Wait for someone to help me or wait to die. The third maddening buzz of my alarm woke me as I groggily slid out of bed to the shower. It was the start of another routine morning, or so I thought. I took a shower, quarreled with my sister over which clothes she should wear for that day and finished getting myself ready. All of this took a little longer than usual, not a surprise, so we were running late. We hopped into the interior of my sleek, white Thunderbird and made our way to school. With music blasting, voices singing and talking, it was another typical ride to school with my sister. Because of our belated departure, I went fast, too fast. We started down the first road to our destination. This road is about three miles long and filled with little hills. As we broke the top of one of the small,......

Traffic Accidents

...Jenkins Topic: Traffic Accidents Narrowed Topic: Three main causes of fatal traffic accidents in Jamaica. Audience: Drivers, Pedestrians, Police Purpose: To educate the audience of three motives as to why traffic accidents occur in Jamaica and result in loss in life. Thesis: Three causes of traffic accidents are drivers refusing to adhere to road safety rules, deplorable road conditions and environmental factors. I. Drivers have very little caution on the roads, therefore accidents occur on a daily basis with the fault being their own. a. Some drivers have bought their licenses and therefore have no knowledge of the Road Safety Act. b. Dr. Parris Lyew-Ayee of the Mona GeoInformatics Institute, University of the West Indies, Mona, reports that most accident arose from the drivers err tailgating a perfect example to convey this c. Speeding is also a very danger factor and vehicle operators seem to speed more during rain. Drivers, however are not aware that vehicles could “aquaplane” or virtually careen off the road as a result of water forming a second surface between the tyre and asphalt (Boyd, 2012). II. Another cause of fatal traffic accidents are bad road conditions present in Jamaica. d. As a result of lack of financial resources, roads are not repaired whenever damages are present. e. Jamaica, being a Caribbean country experiences long periods of rainfall. This contributes to the deteriorating of road. With no proper......

Car Accidents

...Causes of Car Accidents For many people, driving a vehicle is an everyday activity. People rely on their cars to get to work, school, and other important places. However, driving can be dangerous, and although weather conditions and car malfunctions can contribute to accidents, the behavior of drivers is most often the cause of accidents. The three main causes of car accidents are poorly trained drivers, distracted drivers, and impaired drivers. One cause of car accidents is poorly trained drivers. Drivers who don’t follow the rules of the road can be putting themselves and others at risk. For example, drivers who exceed the speed limit will have a more difficult time stopping or turning if something, such as an animal, crosses their path. In addition, there are road signs that drivers need to recognize, understand, and obey. Other drivers cannot tell how people who do not obey road signs will drive, and this unpredictability can lead to accidents. Finally, not checking blind spots and not being aware of one’s surroundings can result in a collision. A driver who is not aware of what is around his or her vehicle may crash into other cars or objects, not realizing they are there. For these reasons, poorly trained drivers can cause accidents. Distracted drivers are another cause of car accidents. Driving is a task that requires the driver’s full attention, so performing other tasks while driving can lead to an accident. For example, people who talk on their cell phone while......

Car Accidents

...Car Accident Articles and Statistics Statistics show that 70% of auto accidents are completely preventable. The driver who causes the accident is simply distracted or irresponsible and is not paying enough attention to the road. The truth is anything can cause you to be distracted from the road; reaching for food or drink, changing the radio station, talking to passengers, texting, or even reading a map or GPS. As a driver, one needs to realize that one has a responsibility to one’s passengers and everyone on the road around oneself to be a safe, observant, and careful driver. In one of my articles, a 19-year-old was driving three 15-year-olds in his car. He was drunk and he was involved in a one car accident. Because of this, one of his passengers died. This accident was completely preventable. If the driver had been more responsible, he would have not driven while intoxicated or have even consumed alcohol in the first place. On April 12th, 2011, a 23-year-old was traveling at least 100 mph before he crashed. This driver was on a motorcycle and died from the accident. This could have been prevented if the motorcyclist would have just reduced his speeds to a safer one. The driver could have saved his own life if he had just slowed down a bit. In another article, a man was standing in the street trying to get a good look at a shuttle launch. This man was 70-years-old and died hours after the crash. The man should have not been standing in the street, but drivers......

Witness of a Road Accident

...Witness of a Road Accident In a city like Bombay, which has more than four hundred thousand vehicles and a few million pedestrians on the roads, many accidents take place every day. But tragic as and accident is, involving loss of life. Things are made worse by the fact that every accident is followed by time-consuming and expensive lawsuits. The polish are handicapped in this matter by the fact that very few people come forward as witnesses. They are either afraid of getting involved or simply indifferent. Let me tell you about the time my friend Nick and I witnessed a road accident and got involved. We were on our way one evening to the beach and for this purpose we had to walk down through crowded market. It was winter and foggy weather. Suddenly we heard the squeal of brakes and saw a car, clearly out of control, skidding on the road. The young man who was driving the vehicle was struggling with the steering wheel but the car was moving sideways towards market. We saw the car smash straight into a cyclist who was coming from the market and flung against a lamppost. He fell unconscious on the pavement and was bleeding profusely from a gash above the forehead. Nick ran in search of a policeman and to phone for an ambulance while I tried to render some first-aid to the bleeding man. Meanwhile a large crowd had collected round the victim of the accident and the car. The driver was pulled out and the public began to beat him up. Fortunately for him...

The Accident

...The Accident I woke up in a very strange place. A place I wasn’t quite familiar with. My left arm and left leg wrapped in some kind of brace. I’m familiar with the sporting braces, but this one, was a whole lot different. It had the same fabrics as a regular sporting brace, but much thicker. It was as hard as wooden table. It even sounded like one when I knocked on it. Because of the braces on me, I could barely move my left arm or left leg. After trying to move it, I felt a lot of pain in the process. Everything was so shocking to me. I kept saying to myself, “Where am I? “Where am I? “Where am I? As these questions rushed through my mind, I heard a voice. I looked around the room in search of the voice. On my right, there was a man. He said to me, “What’s wrong Larry”? “You had bad dream or something”? I did not reply. I closed my eyes and started to pray to God. Praying for everything that I just saw was all a dream. With my head against my right hand, everything got quite for a bit. About a minute or two later, I opened my eyes. The braces and the pain were still there. The gentleman kept calling me, “Larry”. He was talking, but I paid no attention. I kept thinking why he was calling me “Larry”. “Who are you”? “And why are you calling me Larry”? I said. He replied saying, “Because it’s your name.” “And I’m Gary, if you forgot that.” I kept looking at him and notice that he wasn’t wearing any of the equipments I was wearing. He had something else. Some kind of......
