  [A] Driving can show his real self。

  The United States has one of the best highway systems in the world。
Interstate highways connect just about every large and mid-sized city in
the country。 Did u ever wonder why such a complete system of excellent
roads exists? For an answer, u would have to go back to the early
1920s。 In those years just after World War 1, the military wanted to
build an American highway system for national defense such a system
could if necessary move troops quickly from one area to another。 It
could also get people out of cities in danger of being bombed,
so-called roads of national importance were designated, but they were
mostly small country roads。 In 1944 Congress passed a bill to upgrade
the system but did not fund the plan right away。 In the 1950s, the
plan began to become a reality。 Over 25 billion dollars was
appropriated by Congress and construction began on about 40000 miles of
new roads。 The idea was to connect the new system to existing
expressways and freeways。 And though the system was built mostly to
make car travel easier, defense was not forgotten。 For instance,
highway overpasses had to be high enough to allow trailers carrying
military missiles to pass under them。 By 1974,this system was mostly
completed a few additional roads would come later。 Quick and easy
travel between all parts of the country was now possible。

  [B] Huge car parks are built in the cities and towns。

  Passage 2 美国高速公路发展历史

  From the health point of view we are living in a marvelous age. We
are immunized from birth against many of the most dangerous diseases. A
large number of once fatal illnesses can now be cured by modern drugs
and surgery. It is almost certain that one day remedies will be found
for the most stubborn remaining diseases. The expectation of life has
increased enormously. But though the possibility of living a long and
happy life is greater than ever before, every day we witness the
incredible slaughter of men, women and children on the roads. Man versus
the motor-car ! It is a never-ending battle which man is losing.
Thousands of people the world over are killed or horribly killed each
year and we are quietly sitting back and letting it happen。

  Q19。 演讲者对美国高速公路系统有何评论?

  It is high time a world code were created to reduce this senseless
waste of human life. With regard to driving, the laws of some countries
are notoriously lax and even the strictest are not strict enough. A code
which was universally accepted could only have a dramatically beneficial
effect on the accident rate. Here are a few examples of some the things
that might be done. The driving test should be standardized and made far
more difficult than it is; all the drivers should be made to take a test
every three years or so; the age at which young people are allowed to
drive any vehicle should be raised to at least 21; all vehicles should
be put through stringent annual tests for safety. Even the smallest
amount of alcohol in the blood can impair a person’s driving ability.
Present drinking and driving laws (where they exist) should be mad much
stricter. Maximum and minimum speed limits should be imposed on all
roads. Governments should lay down safety specifications for
manufacturers, as has been done in the USA. All advertising stressing
power and performance should be banned. These measures may sound
inordinately harsh. But surely nothing should be considered as to severe
if tit results in reducing the annual toll of human life. After all, the
world is for human beings, not motor-cars。

Q24。 如果驾驶员一只手放在车轮上会发生什么? Q25。

  The surprising thing is that society smiles so benignly on the
motorist and seems to condone his behaviour. Everything is done for his
convenience. Cities are allowed to become almost uninhabitable because
of heavy tragic; towns are made ugly by huge car parks; the countryside
is desecrated by road networks; and the mass annual slaughter becomes
nothing more than a statistic, to be conveniently forgotten。
