Teens aged 16 to 19 are involved in fatal car crashes at three times the rate of those over the age of Teens aged 16 to 17 are most at risk for being involved in a car crash. More teen males are killed in car accidents than females. Immaturity and inexperience are the prime reasons cited for the increased crash rate for teens.

By Michael Scarborough March 14, In my last post, I discussed aspects of problem management in the context of a real-life situation regarding the first vehicle I owned. As I mentioned, for the one year that I owned that car, I periodically experienced interruptions in service.
In other words, the vehicle stopped running. ITIL calls such an interruption in service an incident. As we learned in a prior post, I owned this car for one year, and if the interruption happened every two weeks, then I experienced twenty-six unique incidents. In the previous post, I also described proactive and reactive aspects of problem management as it related to this situation.
In this last post in this series I will discuss workarounds. Workarounds ITIL defines a workaround as a temporary fix. Workarounds temporarily restore service. In the case of my car, when it stopped running I applied a workaround to get it running again quickly.
The workaround was simple; I would clear the blockage from the fuel filter and restart the vehicle.
This temporary fix would work for almost precisely two weeks, before enough sediment from the fuel tank would work its way back into the fuel filter. Workarounds often carry risk. Consider the risk that I was taking when I stopped on the side of the road, raised the hood on my car, disconnected the fuel filter, cleared the blockage, and then replaced the fuel filter.
Applying this workaround represented a significant risk. Not to mention the risk associated with sticking a fuel filter that contained fuel, rust and dirt in my mouth. IT organizations often do similar things. Usually there is some process or application on the server that has a memory leak, and the organization decided that rather than pursue the root cause of the memory leak, it makes more sense to reboot the server periodically.
This is fine, especially when there is a question of cost-effectiveness, but the organization takes significant risk because the reboot does not address the root cause.
Not only that, but IT organizations have a tendency to automate processes like server reboots and process restarts through cron jobs or the equivalent. This is a really bad idea for many reasons, one of which is that eventually the person who automated this workaround will leave the company, and usually these things are poorly documented and ultimately break.
Sometimes it makes sense to keep doing a workaround. I was simply avoiding fixing the root cause of the problem. Fixing the root cause would have only been a couple of hundred dollars, and it would have ultimately saved me time and money and eliminated significant risk.
It could even be said that when I ultimately sold the car that I corrected the root cause, at least from my perspective. I never heard from the people who bought the car how they felt about this.
One last note, sometimes workarounds can be done preventatively. For example, with my car, when I had a date, I would usually apply the workaround before I would pick up my date for the evening. Incidents are interruptions to service, whereas problems are the unknown causes of one or more incidents.
I also discussed various aspects of the incident and problem management processes.

Newly licensed teenage drivers in their first year on the road are also the most likely to be in a car accident.
Among teen drivers, males are the most likely to cause a car accident. The death rate in car accidents for male teen drivers is one and half times that of 5/5().
More teen males are killed in car accidents than females. Immaturity and inexperience are the prime reasons cited for the increased crash rate for teens.
To overcome these, teens need experience driving and to face the challenges of the road, but with the involvement and supervision of parents.
