Aeroplanes are safer than cars.

Some people might think that aeroplanes are risky.  I am sure that most of us have thought about aero planes crashing and the high chance of dying if that happens.  I saw the news about a plane crash last week. When planes are involved in crashes, many people are killed at the same moment.  The rate of survival is almost zero. However, aeroplanes are safer than cars.  Traffic accidents occur every day and many people get injured or die. The number of plane crashes is much lower. In fact, plane crashes are so rare that they make the news when they happen. I can’t remember the last time I saw a news story about a car crash. The shock of many people dying at the same time makes people think that flying is risky but don’t forget that cars are dangerous. Never drive after drinking alcohol or when you are sleepy or talking on your mobile phone!
