Solving Distracted or Reckless Driving

How often do people come home without having a car accident? One time I read an article on someone explaining how they were in a major accident from being distracted. Now I know that person had to have been distracted some way from the road, but now let me give three solid solutions there can be to those that either get distracted or reckless when they drive. First, people should stay off their phones. Second, people shouldn’t be distracted by someone trying to have a conversation while driving. Last, people should educate those who drive while under the influence of alcohol. One solution of solving distracted or reckless driving is making sure you stay focused on the road, not your cell phone. First off, nobody should ever become easily pensive about a cellular device that isn’t important as someone’s life is. In additional, they feel the need to talk on the cellphone they should pull over to the side somewhere and then put it back in their pockets. You should always be attentive of your surroundings when you’re out on the roads. Another solution of solving distracted or reckless driving is to focus more on the road than someone’s conversation. According to, driver’s can become dangerously distracted by other people in the car. If talking to the person in the car is making you lose focus on the road and interfering with your ability to be a safe driver, hold off on the conversation until later. And, a conversation should never allow an inexperienced driver to be focused more on the talking than on the road. Another solution of solving distracted or reckless driving is to educate those under the influence of alcohol. According to, all 50 states have limit sets of blood alcohol concentration that reflects if a driver is under the influence or driving while impaired. For those under 21 years old, there is a zero tolerance limit – even the smallest amount of alcohol is grounds for a DUI or DWI arrest. DUI means driving under the influence, while DWI means driving while intoxicated. And, according to, consuming alcohol prior to driving greatly increases the risk of car accidents, highway injuries, and vehicular deaths. Therefore, it’s better to consume little to no alcohol while you’re driving. So in conclusion, some people don’t make it home as a result of being in a car accident. As I said before I read an article on someone explaining how they were in a major car accident from being distracted. Of course, we know that person got distracted from the road somehow but let me give three solid solutions as to how distracted or reckless driving can be prevented. First point is for people to stay off their phones. Second point is to tell those that get distracted by conversations to keep their eyes on the road. Last point is to inform those under the influence of alcohol to drink no alcohol knowing they have to drive home.


Distracted and reckless driving is a real life issue. I believe that we should teach students, just anyone the outcome when it comes to distracted and reckless driving. I wrote the essay to give different solutions that get driver’s to be distracted or reckless, and also a way to solve the solutions.
