How can we lessen(减少) traffic accidents? All of us must obey the traffic rules. For the drivers, they shouldn’t drive too fast. If they drive too fast, it will be very difficult to stop the cars in a very short time. For the pedestrians(行人), it’s very important to be careful when they are walking on the road. Therefore, when we walk across the road, we must try to walk along the pavements. We must stop and look both ways before crossing the road. Look left first, next look right, then look left again. Only when we are sure that the road is clear, we can cross it. The right way to cross the road is to walk quickly. It’s not safe to run. If people run across the road, they may fall down. Teens should try to help children, old people or blind people to cross the road, and never play in the street.

You may play ping-pong but perhaps you don’t know who invented it. The story is that it started when two students at Cambridge University began knocking a cork(软木塞) to each other across a table, using old boxes.
In about the year 1800, an American businessman of sports goods(体育商品) produced a game that he called Indoor Tennis. The Americans showed no interest in it. He shipped it to London and it soon became popular in Britain. The game was then played across dining room tables, or on the floor with the net string(网子) between chairs. The players used a ball made of cork or rubber.
A few years later a hollow(空的) ball like the one we use today was invented. People all over the world loved it at once. A man called Mr. Wood of London, had the idea of covering the bats(拍子) with rubber. The London businessmen who first sold the game in England called it “Ping-pong”－ “ping” meant the sound of the bat hitting the ball, and “pong” was the sound of the ball hitting the table.
