English SPM Essay 2

Buckling up

By: Gabriel Kong (SMK Bandar Bintulu)

          Vehicles nowadays have brought us to a further extent to places all around the Earth, making our dreams no longer a mere dream. Going back to the beginning, it was a German engineer, Karl Benz, who first invented the first modern automobile. But, during that time, there were no safety belts installed on it. As time moves on, these vehicles grew fancier each day and now are fully enhanced with safety features. 

            When travelling at slow speeds in your car the wearing of a seatbelt has little effect on your body when you brake. So why is it important to buckle up?The truth is that all driving can be dangerous and seatbelts should be worn regardless of the speed or distance travelled.A driver or passenger travelling in a car is moving at the same speed as the car. If the car suddenly stops, the body of the passengers inside will be moving forward at the same speed. This demonstrates inertia. Frankly, Newton’s first law states that a body stationary or moving with constant velocity will continue to do so, unless acted on by a force. This occurs whether it is going a block from your house or on a road trip, it is a dangerous game you play when you decide not to wear a seatbelt.

            As a matter of fact, these belts are often seen as a hindrance for drivers or passengers, mostly because they feel quite uncomfortable when using them. Butwhat would you rather do, wear a seatbelt and get into an accident and live to see another day or get into an accident and die because you did not want to spend five seconds putting on a seatbelt? You would choose the first one because your life to your family is worth more than those five seconds. By not spending that time to make sure you would stay alive, you made your family spend a lifetime wondering, “What if I had buckled up, would things turn out different?” So, which do you value more? Choose wisely for the decision is yours to make.

          Today, our government had even made fixing seat belts at the rear of the car compulsory and mandatory. This shows how important seat belts are and how they have the potential to save lives. Unfortunately, some belittled the seat belts at the rear and even gave up free offers to fix them. They never knew that wearing seatbelts at the rear is just as important as wearing them at the front. The back of the front seat may seem harmless, however when you are thrown out at great speed,the impact may be the same as you are hitting against a solid brick wall. It has been found that the rear seat belt itself could reduce the risk of fatality by around 20% mainly by eliminating ejection from the vehicle. In the event of a crash, an unrestrained rear seat occupant may be projected forward and thus increasing the risk of injury for front seat occupants.
          Even though safety belts seemed to be tiny but they bring great differences into our lives, saving our lives not only once from the grasp of death. In 2009, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration(NHTSA) reported that lap-shoulder belts when used will reduce the risk of fatal injury to front-seat occupants by 45% and the risk of moderate-to-critical injuries by 50%, depending on the type of vehicle and seating position involved. For light truck occupants, safety belts can reduce the risk of fatal injury by 60% and moderate-to-critical injury by 65%. Moreover, seat belts are credited with preventing an estimated 13,250 fatalities of people over the age of 4 in the same year.

          Road related fatalities happen for a reason and most of the time it is related to reckless behaviors and negligence. We have to change our mindset and daily practice so that such tragedies will not happen to us and our loved ones. Sometimes, it only requires a simple yet, minor action just to make a big difference. So, buckle up before you ride and do not allow the grim reaper to lay his hands on you.

English SPM Essay 1

Better Late Than Never
By: Ericson Enteqal (SMK Bandar Bintulu)

            Alison Evans was a teenage girl who just had her driving license for her nineteenth birthday for her parents. She was so excited and thrilled with her new experiences on her driving skills. When she went to college, she drove her new Porsche and showed it off to her peers. Alison thought it was fun by drifting in her campus and the compliments that she had from her friends were the coolest things that she ever dreamt. Well, teenager at her age can be easily influenced by her surroundings. So, it was no offense if she would try to break the rules just to gain respects from her friends.

            After school on Fridays, Alison usually asked her friends out as they were going to spend their weekend together. In addition, they did have to attend any class on weekends. These party girls visited the club near to their campus. It was probably a kilometre away from their campus. It had been a weekly routine for Alison to enjoy her weekends in the club. She totally misused the freedom that her parents have given.

            She continued her wild lifestyle on the road as well. She drove her car like there were no other drivers on the road. Sometimes, she drove home even though she was under the influence of alcohol. Speeding up when the traffic lights turned red was another usual act of her. After being summon for countless times, she still stuck with her old habits. She never realised that her actions could harm other road users’ life. She was always defended by her parents for her mistakes on the road whenever her college counsellor tried to discuss this issue with them.

            Well, not every day is a good day for Alison. It was another sunny Friday noon when things turned out unexpected to Alison. The excitement turned into a nightmare when she was driving in drunken mode. Somehow, Alison’s friends did not stop her as they were drunk too. The heart-breaking incident occurred near the school compound. Alison was rushing home after receiving a distress phone call from her mother said that her father was in critical condition due to his stroke. She was speeding over the limits and without the seat belt on.

            Alison’s friends still remained unconscious at the passenger seats. During the peak time, students were usually going home and some of them have to cross the road as their parents were waiting at the opposite side of the school. While in the other direction, the drunken Alison sped up even more. Suddenly, she lost control of her car and it skidded towards the students at the sidewalk. The tragic moment happened in the blink of an eye. Alison tried to brake her car but it was too late. Alison and her friends were being thrown out from the car because of the great impact produced when the collision occurred.

            The accident took away fifteen lives and one of them was Alison’s best friend, Amanda. Besides, Alison suffered from malfunction eye sides after the accident due to the windscreen glasses which entered her eyes. For sure, she was using a wheelchair now as her legs were broken. It was a breathtaking moment for Alison’s mother when she saw her daughter was being charged in court. Finally, Alison realised that the accident was an eye-opening and a wake up call for her to change her attitude when driving.

            Katherine Mansfield, a poet said that: “Could we change our attitude, we should not only see life differently, but life itself would come to be different.” Make a change in our life that can save others life is worth by buckling up and remains under the speed limits. Together we can make a different. Do not seek death unnecessarily! It is better late than never.

Karangan 1


Sejak 31 Ogos 1957, penduduk Malaysia yang terdiri daripada masyarakat berbilang kaum hidup bagai aur dengan tebing. Walaupun menyedari hakikat bahawa rambut sama hitam, hati lain-lain , namun masyarakat yang berbilang kaum ini hidup dengan aman dan damai. Oleh itu, pelbagai pihak perlu memegang pada kekuatan jata negara, yakni Bersekutu Bertambah Mutu”untuk mengeratkan perpaduan kaum di Malaysia. Perpaduan kaum di Malaysia seyogianya menjadi kebanggaan Negara kita.

Sebenarnya, kita bolehlah mengadakan aktiviti gotong-royong di taman-taman perumahan untuk memupuk perpaduan kaum rakyat di Malaysia. Masyarakat yang berbilang kaum akan keluar untuk bekerjasama membersihkan taman-taman perumahan. Melalui aktiviti kemasyarakatan ini, mereka dapat lebih mengenali antara satu sama lain melalui perbualan dan berinteraksi kerana tak kenal maka tak cinta. Mantan Perdana Menteri, Tun Dr Mahathir pernah menegaskan bahawa bulat air kerana pembetung, bulat manusia kerana muafakat; perpaduan merupakan kekuatan negara. Oleh sebab itu, saya percaya bahawa jika kita mengamalkan prinsip berat sama dipikul, ringan sama dijinjing, kita dapat menikmati pembangunan nusa tercinta ini bersama-sama.

Selain itu, kita juga boleh mengamalkan amalan kunjung-mengunjung ke rumah rakan-rakan yang berlainan bangsa sempena hari-hari perayaan untuk memupuk semangat perpaduan dalam kalangan rakyat berbilang kaum di Malaysia. Kebudayaan antara kaum dapat difahami dengan lebih mendalam sekali gus dapat menjana tahap kefahaman dan membina masyarakat yang saling menghormati. Amalan rumah terbuka juga boleh dipraktikkan untuk memupuk perpaduan kaum rakyat Malaysia dengan amalan saling memaafkan sesama insan. Oleh itu, sikap buang yang keruh , ambil yang jernihternyata mampu menjalinhubungkan semangat perpaduan yang tersedia utuh.

Seterusnya, pihak kerajaan sentiasa membuat anjakan paradigma demi memperkuat jalinan kemesraan rakyat dengan mengadakan banyak aktiviti pada peringkat taman-taman perumahan. Dengan langkah bestari itu, kita dapat memupuk perpaduan kaum rakyat Malaysia. Misalnya, sambutan hari keluarga dan jamuan tahunan yang diadakan oleh organisasi atau pertubuhan kerajaan dapat mempererat hubungan antara pemimpin dengan penduduk tempatan. Selain dapat mendengar rintihan hati rakyat, pemimpin turut dapat menjadi suri teladan sebagai agen perpaduan. Saya yakin, orang ramai yang berbilang kaum akan lebih mempercayai dan meyakini kewibawaan pemimpin dan saling menghormati antara satu sama lain. Cara ini pasti ini akan mengurangkan pertengkaran dan perselisihan faham antara kaum.

Di samping itu, kita juga dapat memupuk perpaduan kaum di Malaysia dengan menghantar anak-anak ke sekolah kebangsaa . Dengan cara ini, kita akan dapat melahirkan pemuda-pemuda yang tidak mempunyai masalah perhubungan dan pergaulan antara kaum yang berlainan. Pergaulan mesra dan semangat bersatu padu yang dijalin ini sudah mampu menjadi tiang kukuh untuk membuktikan bahawa rakyat Malaysia patuh pada Rukun Negara. Hal ini sangat penting untuk memupuk perpaduan kaum di Malaysia dalam sanubari anak-anak sejak bangku sekolah kerana melentur buluh biarlah dari rebungnya. Semua kekangan untuk mempererat perpaduan kaum akan dapat diselesaikan jika anak-anak telah mempelajari cara-cara untuk berinteraksi dengan orang yang berlainan kaum sejak kecil.

Tuntasnya, semua pihak haruslah menggembleng tenaga dan bekerjasama untuk memupuk perpaduan kaum rakyat di Malaysia. Hal ini penting supaya negara dapat berkembang maju dengan lebih lancar bawah dasar 1Malaysia yang diilhamkan oleh Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Tun Razak. Saya yakin dan percaya bahawa rakyat Malaysia mengenali peribahasa ke bukit sama didaki, ke lurah sama dituruni. Oleh itu, kita yang sudah melalui zaman prakemerdekaan yang perit dan pahit haruslah mengisi kemerdekaan dengan penuh semangat perpaduan kaum. Ingatlah wahai rakyatku bahawa semangat perpaduan harus disemai dan diingati sampai bila-bila agar Wawasan 2020 menjadi realiti, bukannya fantasi semata-mata.
