Read the following passage carefully and answer all the questions on it. Use correct English sentences, and as far as possible, your own words.

Traffic was speeding along Yaoundé-Douala highway near Edea. It was mid-morning on a cold December day. Suddenly, families, businessman, buses and truckers were plunged
into a wall of deadly fog. Unable to sec more than the length of a bus in front of them, 16
cars, vans and lorries crashed into each other in a huge pile-up. A woman and two men lay
dead in the remains of their cars and many more injured and trapped in their vehicles.

One of the first policemen on the scene, police Constable Ewane Paul recalls:”It was
terrifying, the worst I’ve seen in 17 years of traffic duty. There were so many crashes in the
fog that day that it took ambulances two hours to be through. There was nothing we could
do to help. It happened because people were going too fast and driving too close.
People were going at 80 kilometers per hour when a safe speed would have been 25
kilometers. You can’t help feeling a sense of hopelessness at people’s stupidity. They
follow each other like lemmings”.

dangerous risks at road junctions. That’s why some people say it is becoming crucial to
reduce speed. They ask the government to impose that speed limiters should be fitted to
all vehicles- not just lorries and coaches.

But it is not just ignorance or speed that causes accidents. As more cars compete for
limited road space, an increasing number of motorists are turning into aggressive
There are no figures for the number of accidents caused by driver’s ignorance or
aggressive driving. Yet one fact emerges clearly, the most common and dangerous driving
error is simply driving too fast.
