AUTOMATIC CAR'S THEORY
Today’s new theory is about the automatic car, it has been hailed as one of the greatest inventions. A car that can automatically change gears, no having to muck around with a manual car, having to use the stick shift and clutch to change gears, the automatic gear box does it all for you. How good is that now you just get in the car, put the key and turn the ignition and put you foot on the accelerator and drive, but I think that it is the biggest cause of...
ACCIDENTS! I think it is easy to have an accident in an automatic car then a manual or stick shift. When you drive a manual you have to be aware of what gear you're in, when to change gear, you also have to co-ordinate you right and left feet as well as your hands, meaning in order to get anywhere you actually have to drive the car you are in total control of the car.
In an automatic you really only need to point the car in whatever direction you need to go, it's that simple, whilst it makes driving very easy (and trust me it took me a while to learn how to drive a manual or stick shift) it also means that you can become quite complacent about driving. In a manual you have to be switched on at all times otherwise you STALL it, that's not fun when you stall the car. Next time you are in an automatic, turn it on and put it in drive and without pushing the accelerator the car will start to move forward, try doing that in a manual or stick shift.
Now if an automatic car is easier to operate then it's going to be easier for people to do other stuff in their car like, smoke, change CD's, radio stations and most alarmingly switch off and cause an accident, you don't have to have that level of concentration required in a manual or stick shift car.
When you look at the statistics on road deaths, they are alarming one of the single biggest killers. I think that given our horrible road tolls that it is about time we did a study on how many accidents are caused by manual or automatic cars. I'm betting that the results will show that automatics are involved and the cause of more accidents.
So that is my theory, that automatic cars are involved and cause more accidents than manual cars! Well do you think that I am onto something. Let me know what you think?
