Many teenagers look forward to practicing behind the wheel and receiving their license after many hours put in. While it is an exciting moment for them, it can be a scary thought for their parents or guardians. In the last three decades, car accidents have been the main cause of teenagers’ deaths. What is worse is the first year of driving is usually the time when these accidents happen.

While terraced rice fields are a common sight in third-world countries, it is an uncommon sight for many of us. We loved these pics – 17 Tremendous Terraced Rice Fields.
