What are Some Common Causes for Fatal Car Accidents?

Driving While Distracted is a leading cause of car accidents. A distracted driver is basically a person who shifts his/her attention from the road to something less important, such as eating, texting or talking on the phone.

Reckless Drivers are known for causing many accidents. A person who has road rage is a perfect example of a reckless driver. The driver is too impatient or aggressive that he/she will go at great lengths to get in front of other drivers or intimidate other drivers. Reckless driving involves tailgating, unsafe lane changing and speeding.

Running Red Lights is the common cause of injury and death. Drivers who run through red lights are not only risking their own lives, but the lives of others around them.

Speeding beyond the speed limit is very dangerous regardless of the whether a person is driving 10, 25 or 30 miles over the limit.

Ignoring Stop Signs can cause serious car accidents. Thousands of car accidents happened because drivers ignore stop signs. Running a stop sign can cause a fatal crash if the wrongful driver is speeding.

Inclement Weather is a major contributor to many car crashes. Whether it’s a rain, sleet or snow, all elements can cause hazardous road conditions. Trucks, cars and other vehicles can easily spin out of control and crash during inclement weather.

Unsafe Lane Changing, especially at high-speeds, can lead to a fatal crash. An unsafe lane change occurs when a driver moves into the opposite lane without caution.
