A Deadly Formula

Paloma C



Life is a math equation. Almost every day activities can be related to math and driving is not an exception. Teenagers nowadays have the privilege to drive at an early age and are educated well about all the risks and consequences of reckless driving. However, not everyone chooses to drive like they had been taught. With the invention called “the phone,” it is easier than ever for teens to cause collisions. My simple formula is proven with many facts about the issues, such as “at least 1 in 4 of all car collisions involves phone use” and “talking on the cell can double the likelihood of a collision.” Such of these consequences are not hard to avoid. Based on my simple formula, teens can drastically reduce the risk by eliminating the “phoning” factor from the sum or doing the same thing with the driving factor. These things cannot go together in many cases.
