Section C: comprehension (10 marks)
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 ît 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”.
What makes people deliberately play with death in this way? According to a recent survey by the Ministry of Transport, many drivers are out of touch with the rules of the road and the Highway Code. Besides, more and more people go against these rules and it’s not unusual to spot drivers jumping red lights, overtaking on double white lines and taking 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 monsters.
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.

Adapted from Janet Hawkins, Bella, 9th 1993
