In recent years, car accidents have been a drastic problem than it used to be decades ago, because of the new technology and social media system that we have been using. Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and the recent most popular app, Snapchats have been changing life. I believe these social media tools, are the key causes of most car accidents. For instance, many drivers who are teenagers through mid age use Snapchat to follow up with what they are doing. Drivers will be snapping about the things they see while driving. However, there are many other things that can causes problems when driving. George A. Peters and Barbara J. Peters wrote an article, “The Distracted: How Dangerous is “Multitasking”? Discussing about how to reduce the chances of getting into an accident, authors tries to encourage the drivers to drive safe showing the reaction time and distraction stage chart. The authors in depth essay uses causal, evaluation, and proposal argument.

It’s always sad to see loved ones die, but it can be especially tragic when it happens unexpectedly. One of the most common, unexpected ways to die, is being involved in a car wreck. Things like icy roads, animal crossings, and car malfunctions are things that are sometimes beyond our control, yet they only make up the small proportion of the causes of car crashes. Most of the accidents that occur are usually preventable. It’s the individual driver who can make things happen; or not happen. Things like speeding, tailgating, and reckless driving have been problems for quite some time, but the the new problem that is undoubtedly the largest problem is distracted driving. New technology/services have come out to prevent people from driving while distracted by blocking incoming messages and notifications. Using various forms of advertising, this is the type of solution that needs to be introduced to everyone.
With this in mind, driving a car is a great responsibility. A vehicle can be a deadly weapon if not used with serious precaution. Road work, bad weather conditions, or even technological anomalies can cause a catastrophe. To trust even the utmost sophisticated of machines seems
Don't call, Don’t text, Look ahead Over the past years, fatal car accidents have increased around the world.

Imagine this, Mr. Jones, a fictitious character, is flying in to visit his family in Pittsburgh Pennsylvania. He arrives at the Pittsburgh Int’l Airport and instructs the Uber app on his phone to ring him a ride and take him to his family’s residence. A grey Ford Fusion pulls up to the curb, and Mr. Jones notices that the roof looks like it’s been taken over by a robotic parasite, cameras and sensors festoon the once elegant design. Nevertheless he pops in his carry on luggage and gets in. Only to find that no one is the car, just him, alone. He types in the address on the blinking iPad and the car drives away seemingly knowing exactly where it’s going. Mr. Jones is more frightened of this trip’s outcome than the first time he saw The Shining. This alarming, gut-wrenching, nervous reaction will be quite common if tech giants win the battle for Completely Autonomous Cars (CAC). Semi Autonomous Cars (SAC) already exist and are extremely helpful to most people. These cars still have steering wheels, pedals, gear selectors, etc. Most importantly they can still be controlled by humans. CAC are boxes with a bench, no controls and no emergency override. Occupants are subjected to whatever the car decides what is best for them. While this may sound like a perfect utopian future, it is closer to something from a Ray Bradbury book than Disney’s Tomorrowland.
He’s speeding to get to campus as soon as possible, and it was Monday morning, on a rush hour, adding to how messy this day for him. He turns up the radio and calms his nerve down as the morning sun turns more yellow, climbing up faster than usual. Things are doing just fine and he murmurs that he’s going to have great day, he thought, believing that he will arrive on time. Not until few minutes from there, a car in front of him decided to changed lane and it was right in span of few second. He hits his breaks immediately, in complete shocked, but the car doesn’t stop, and he just screeches running over the other car, trying to go left avoiding any crash but something else is on the other direction. Someone with his bicycle is in front of his car and he lost his control, slammed right into the bike.
