In 2009, it was a sunny, hot and glowy day in Bangladesh . All of my family members went on a trip to my mom’s house. It was 45 to 50 minutes away from our house. We stayed there for a day. I didn’t wanna get back home because it was that fun but we had to because we had final test the next day. My nanu (my grandma: mom’s mom) always gives food whenever we go to her because she doesn’t want her daughter (my mom) to cook right after coming back. So we were on our way home from my nanu’s house. We had to reserve three CNGS (popular vehicle in Bangladesh) because we were like 15 of us. First CNG left like couple minutes before our one. We were in 2nd CNG, we had an teenage driver. His name was Amin. He was around 17. My two cousins, my brother and I was in that vehicle. The driver was on his phone the whole time. It was after 3 or 4 minutes of driving the CNG fall on a big pond. I felt like the sky dropped on my head but thankfully we didn’t go far. The foods were all over us, my brother’s leg broke, one of my cousin twisted her foot, I broke my left shoulder. After that day I was look for adult driver who’s more focus on driving, after coming to USA even though people have to give road test before getting licenses. In Bangladesh anyone can drive even without license. Today, driving is the feet for most of the people. As the important of driving increasing, the incidence are increasing too, mostly the teen agers are going through a lot for those calamity. The research shows that most of the crushes are happening because of teen drivers, cell phones and texting. -32.8% of high school students nationwide have texted or email while driving. -drivers under the age of 20 make up the largest percentage of distracted drivers. -13% of teens admit to texting while driving. Only the government can change this type of occurrences. They need to be more strict order to reduce the death or damages happening by cars crushes.
