  阅读下列短文,回答{TSE}题目.

  Driving cars, trucks and motorcycles is an important part of our lives. We do it every day to get to work, to school or to friends' houses.

  Driving can be very convenient, but can also cause many problems. Waiting in line at a red light, a driver may get impatient and decide just to drive right through it. If another car is coming from the other direction, there might be a terrible accident. Cutting another car off can make its driver angry, so that driver cuts off someone else. Pretty soon everybody is angry, and impatient.Traffic accidents decline millions of lives every year worldwide. In Taiwan alone, over seven people are killed in accidents every day. The annual death rate from traffic accidents in Taiwan is twice that of Japan.

  To allow traffic to move smoothly and safely, everybody must follow the rules. Before you drive, learn all the traffic laws. That way of driving is safe, convenient and even fun !

  开小汽车、卡车以及摩托车是我们生活的一个重要部分。我们每天都要开车去工作、上学或者拜访朋友。

  开车的确很方便,但是开车也容易引起很多问题。等红灯等得不耐烦了,司机可能会变得没有耐性而直接闯红灯。如果碰巧有另一辆车从对面驶来,则可能会酿成交通事故。从其他司机面前横穿过去会让对方恼火导致对方也这样做。结果所有人都很不耐烦地这样做。

  全世界每年死于车祸的人数以百万计。仅台湾,每天死于车祸的人就不少于7人。台湾年交通事故死亡率是日本的两倍。要让交通平安顺畅运行.每个人都要遵守交通规则。开车之前.要学会所有的交通规则。只有遵守交通规则的驾驶才是安全、方便甚至有趣的!
