I was fond of learning to drive when I was six. Whenever my father used to drive, I used to see him driving; pressing accelerators and applying brakes. He promised that he would gift me a new car when I would finish high school.
The day came. My car awaited outside my house when I returned from the school farewell party. I was very much excited to see the new black Honda standing out of my house driveway. However, my father did not allow me to drive it until I took driving lessons.
I got admission into driving school where I not only learned the skills of driving but learned a lot of stuff about road safety and precautionary measures which must be taken while one drives.
They also arranged a class about the vehicule restraint system, which is actually created for the safety of the people at the time of a car accident or a car crash. They explained that seat belts and air bags are the best restraint devices which can help us in preventing ourselves from major injuries in an accident.
I knew the functions of seat belts; however I was not aware of the usage of air bags. Our driving instructor explained that air bags are among the best restraint devices for vehicles as they fill up the entire space at the time of accident. This prevents the occupants of the car from major injuries which may result from an accident. A vehicle may be comprised of 6 to 22 air bags.
The class was really interesting and I wrote everything they taught in the entire class as it was really useful.
I came back home and told my father about the air bags. He decided to install them in my car as a precautionary measure.
Now, I drive myself to college and I drive with all the precautionary measures. Whenever someone sits in my car, I tell them to use seat belts for protection. My friends love to drive home with me as I drive pretty well and safely enough.
My dad keeps on reminding me to take care while driving. I had heard that a new driver usually damages their car or often meets with an accident at the start. But I haven't faced any accident since I started driving. It has been five years and I have become an expert driver now.
