Road Accidents in Arizona
More than 1,000 people were killed in car wrecks in Arizona in 2021. In the United States, Arizona highways are some of the most dangerous. Car crashes in the Grand Canyon State are often caused by driver intoxication and wrong-way drivers. These are two dangerous types of negligent driving, which are the most common contributing factor to car accidents throughout the United States.
More than 90% of car crashes in Arizona are the result of negligent driving, according to information provided by the Arizona Department of Transportation. This includes distracted driving, speeding, intoxication, and fatigue.
Drivers who act negligently injure and kill thousands of victims every single year. Despite the safety regulations and rules implemented to preserve the safety of drivers, they continue to act negligently while behind the wheel.
