As we all know, automobiles have helped us a lot since they were invented. Automobiles can take us to a further place where we can spend a whole day on staying in nature; they can help us to carry heavy things to home when we finish shopping; etc. Although there are such many advantages to use automobiles, but have you ever noticed that there are so many dangers lying behind? I think we should consider more about the disadvantages more in using automobiles.
People think using automobiles is much convenient. However I think there is much danger right around you by using automobiles. Do you know how many car accidents happened each day? Do you know how many people died in accidents? Nowadays, how many people can obey the traffic laws? I think people seldom do that. Many people still drive cars after drinking a lot. They do not know how to take care of themselves, how can they ask their cars to protect them? Cars even make you drive faster and faster in order to get the good feelings at that time; sometimes the dangers will come at the right time and right place.
I think the most serious problem by using automobiles is that they can produce air pollution and then damage the ozone layer! Now air pollution which comes from cars, make the ozone layer has a hole, a big hole in it. The scientists cannot imagine how much danger is going to bring to us. More Ultraviolet rays will project into the earth. That will be harm to human beings, such as skin cancer.
To conclusion, I think using automobiles has more disadvantages than advantages. I am not going to say using cats are not good at all because cars also bring us convenience. But think about cars also bring us accidents and damage the earth. That will be more serious problem in the world. We had better use automobiles less and less.
