Sample Answer:

Dear Sir,

Bristol is one of the densely populated cities in England. The increasing population causes several issues like road accidents. Hundreds of people are killed and maimed in road accidents every week. People of this metropolis are becoming more and more concerned about the fatal issue that there has been no single you find on which road accidents have not taken place for the few months. Regrettably, most accidents are brought about by reckless driving.

In the day before yesterday, I was scared by witnessing a terrible road accident. A car was mangled by a truck that came rashly from behind ran over it in the blink of eyes. Three men were slain on the spot itself. The poignant incident caused by reckless driving has become common daily experience for us. However, not only does reckless driving pose the threat to life, but also it could harm to property. That is to say, it kills and cripples hundreds of people on the one hand, and damages a number of vehicles and other property on the other hand. Reckless driving is thus one of the most pressing issue in our city that ought to be properly address so as to government would pass stringent law and to create awareness amongst people.

It would be appreciated if you set forth the issue in your paper with proper treatment. I look forward to seeing your sensible action.

Yours sincerely,
Fergus Millar.
