V. Reading. (5ms)

Read the passages below and choose the correct answer among A, B, C or D.

a.                                                           Safety on the roads.

          Every day many road accidents happen in Hong Kong. Some accidents cause injuries but some lead to death. Everyone, especially children, must learn how to cross the road. A simple code to remember is “ STOP, LOOK and LISTEN BEFORE YOU CROSS”.

          The Transport Department organizes road safety campaigns every year in order to reduce traffic accidents. Parents and teachers should educate children on road safety. Most schools have their own School Road Safety Patrols. The School Road Safety Patrol is a uniformed group. It recruits secondary school students as members. Students at senior forms help fellow students cross the road correctly and safely on their way to and from school.

           When you go out alone, however, what is the best way to cross the road? First, you must find a safe place to cross. There may be subways, footbridges, zebra or green man crossing. Of course, it is safest to be directed by a policeman. Then you should stand on the pavement where you can see clearly all the directions, look round for the traffic and listen. If a car is coming, you ought to let it pass. When there is no traffic near, walk straight across the road. Do not run as you may trip!

             Roads are dangerous. However, if everyone takes care when crossing the road, there will be fewer traffic accidents. Our transport system will then become safer and more efficient.
