Small Devices Equal Less Danger
Small Devices Equal Less Danger Everyone has excepted reckless and distracted driving as a normalcy and as a result the number of teen deaths and injuries continues to about 4000 each year. To help decrease these numbers there should be a device installed in the seat belt that prevents the vehicles from driving if they do not use it. Additionally, the steering wheel should have a heat sensor that can detect if the driver has both hands on the wheel. If the sensor does not detect two hands for longer than a minute an automatic call to the local police station should be triggered; the officer must then question the driver for not having both hands on the wheel and determine if they will receive a ticket of fifteen dollars or pass with a warning. This will directly help avoid the 1 in 4 car collisions involving phone use. Furthermore, every person has three warnings for small infractions but after the third infraction they must attend a driving class to review the road rules. To conclude, in the age of technology there should be advances in preventing people from operating a vehicle that do not follow the required safety guidelines.
