Dangers of big trucks

  It’s an obvious fact that simi trucks are much larger than the cars we drive and it’s true that they can put lives in danger due to their large size. The majority of car accidents on highways involve simi trucks. Simi trucks have a hard time swapping lanes because of many blind spots. These blind spots make it hard for the driver to see what’s next to them. They also have a hard time coming to a complete stop because of heavy loads behind them. This can end badly if a sudden stop is needed to occur. Simi truck drivers may be experienced in their job but mistakes can happen. In most cases, the car always loses the battle in a wreck between simi and car. Many deaths happen each year to simi truck accidents.
Car drivers should be aware that truck drivers are not able to maninuver as well and have a much harder job on the road. All drivers should try their best to respect truck drivers on the road and give them enough space to drive. This will make all roads a safer place to be. 

Tis the season 

  During the holiday seasons many people all over the world celebrate Christmas. During this holiday season many people decorate trees and their houses with lights. Some people even go to extreme measures while decorating by setting up lights all in their yards. Many cities and parks will decorate with lights in creative ways. This uses a lot of energy in a months time. Because of this people’s electricity bills will increase. 
Christmas lights can also be a fire hazard. When lights are left on for too long they can overheat and catch surrounding objects on fire. What a sad Christmas it would be if your house caught on fire the day before Christmas. 

One way people can prevent these problems is by setting a timer on all lights that are displayed. These can be bought at convienient stores. This will allow you to choose exactly how long you want your lights to stay on. This way you can still have them on at nighttime and you don’t have to worry about turning them off in the middle of the night. 

Living in rural areas 

  Most people think that living in the middle of no where is the safest place to be but little do they know, the city is a much safer place to live. Here are a few reasons that make rural areas more dangerous than the cities. 

  • Living outside of the city requires more driving which makes it more likely to get in a car accident 
  •  Gun accidents are more likely to happen in the country due to recreational gun use and hunting 
  • Robbery is more likely to occur with no one watching
  • Response time is much slower outside of city limits

These are just a few of the top reasons that make rural areas more dangerous. By living in the city you are constantly around people which makes your chances of being robbed less likely, guns are out of the norm in cities, driving is required as much, and help is always near if something does happen. 

More and more people are moving out of the cities because they are fearful. If people only realized that the country isn’t any better they would probably stay in the city.
