IELTS Cue Card Sample 113 Topic: Describe a traffic rule or law you know about.

Describe a traffic rule or law you know about.

You should say:

  • what it is
  • how you know about it
  • do you follow this rule/law
  • and explain why this rule is important.

Sample Answer

Law or regulations are enforced by government and authorities to make the society in order as well as ensure the safety of citizens. Likewise, traffic laws are in place to guarantee the safety for vehicle, passengers, drivers and other people who might get involved in traffic. Besides, traffic law is built to keep the system running smoothly to support citizens’ travelling.

While some traffic regulations are universal, like the rule that you must stop whenever you see the traffic light turns red, some vary from country for country. Today, I would like to share with you a special law that is recently implemented in our country. It’s “yellow light” law.

As I keep track of the news daily, I knew the rule a month before it was officially enforced. Most countries use “red light” to stop people or vehicles and yellow light for stopping preparation, but in Vietnam, we now use yellow light as the stop signal. From my point of view, I think that this law is rooted from the fact that most traffic citizens in Vietnam don’t slow down or prepare for the stop, but drive faster to avoid red light instead. This kind of action is extremely dangerous because it can easily lead to collision among vehicles of those who want to obey the rule and those want to break the rule. Moreover, traffic lights are built up to control the flow of vehicles, thus, by breaking the red light law, the flow of vehicle can be affected, thus, cause traffic jams. With many drawbacks like that, the authorities have made a decision to enforce “yellow light” rule, which means that drivers must stop their vehicles when lights turn yellow. In case of law breaking, the violator has to pay the same amount of money like that case of red light rule.

I always try my best to obey this law because I am fully aware that by following it, I not only ensure the safety and benefits of myself but to help contribute to build up social awareness in traffic laws.
