What Are Some Common Causes of Auto Accidents?
The best way to avoid a car accident is to understand how accidents happen. Our Santa Barbara auto accident lawyers are ready to explain some of the major and common causes of motor vehicle wrecks. These tips for the road may keep you safer next time you travel ― whether a short commute to work or a longer trip to visit family and friends. Keep an eye out for these unsafe drivers, and be sure to avoid these behaviors yourself:
- Distracted drivers ― Distracted driving behaviors include texting, talking on the phone, rubbernecking, and adjusting technologies such as the radio, GPS, etc.
- Driver fatigue ― Drowsy driving leads to drifting vehicles, varying road speeds, and bad decision-making.
- Drunk driving or driving under the influence ― Drunk drivers kill about 16,000 people per year. If you think someone is driving under the influence, contact 911 immediately.
- Speeding ― Speeding increases the risk of crashing and reduces the time necessary to avoid a crash.
- Aggressive driving ― Aggressive drivers tend to tailgate, flash their lights, fail to yield, disregard traffic signals or display rude or aggressive behavior. Do not engage with aggressive drivers; instead, call 911 if a driver is behaving in an overtly dangerous way.
- Weather ― Inclement weather such as snow, ice, or other hazardous conditions can make driving dangerous. Use your lights and wipers and adjust your speed accordingly.
