Car accidents happen every single day, and knowing their most common causes may give you the knowledge to best prevent them from happening to you.
Human beings are, put simply, terrible drivers. Every single one of us is almost destined to crash at least once in our lives due to our poor reaction times and short attention spans. Until self-driving cars become the norm, and get a significant price reduction, we are going to have to try our hardest to avoid these common accidents.
- Distracted Driving
The number one cause of accidents are drivers who seem to keep their eyes on everything but the road ahead of them. Put away your phone and keep your eyes on the road!
Force is equal to mass x acceleration. So the more speed you have, the more force it will require to slow you down.
- Reckless Driving
Changing lanes too quickly without checking the side view mirror and blind spot, tailgating, and other reckless behaviors lead to accidents.
- Teenage Drivers
Youth is wasted on the young, this much is fact. But careful driving does not lay waste to young lives. Make sure that you instill safe driving practices in them early by being good role models and driving with them as much as possible.
