Traffic Collisions in Arizona
When you decide to drive a car, there comes an imminent risk that you may become involved in an accident caused by negligence.
The leading causes of car accidents in the United States include:
- Reckless driving: The actions of reckless motorists are often unpredictable and dangerous. Things like cutting people off, not using turn signals, tailgating, ignoring traffic signals, and erratically changing speeds are all extremely hazardous and are sure ways to cause a wreck.
- Running red lights: Running a red light is extremely dangerous due to the fact that those who are driving through green lights are usually totally unassuming that someone would be coming at them from a stopped direction.
- Distracted driving: If you’ve ever been a busy driver, you know what it’s like to feel pressured to answer your phone or respond to a text. Multi-tasking while driving may seem harmless, however, over 1,000 people are injured in distracted-driving-related incidents per day in the United States.
- Speeding: It’s understandable to feel rushed when you’re going somewhere, especially if you’re running late. However, driving over the speed limit has worse consequences than arriving late. Every year since 2009, speeding has been a contributing factor in at least 25% of all auto accidents in the United States.
