Vehicle accidents are a very big cause of death in our society, and where the government is often called upon to improve safety. The fact is that it is the drivers who are now more at fault. This essay works to show that even though additional safety measures may help people stay safe on the roads, it is the responsibility of drivers to ensure they remain safe.Over 36% of pre-crash conditions include vehicles turning at intersections.11% of accidents are caused by people driving in the wrong lane.22% of vehicles are driven off the road prior to them crashing.Over Road traffic collisions and incidents often have more than one person to blame. However, many of the reasons involve the drivers directly, even in cases where they are simply responsible because they were not conscientious of adverse driving conditions.
The government could be pressed to make intersections safer, or to put barriers on every road to stop people going off road. But, the biggest factor is the driver, and there is only so much babying that a government can do when trying to make the roads safer.
