From drivers that admit they were at fault for road traffic accidents, the reason most cited is a lack of concentration. It only takes a couple of seconds of looking the wrong way to cause an accident and for innocent victims to be injured. If you are one of those innocent victims, we can connect you with a top-class accident lawyer in Glasgow City because you will be entitled to make a compensation claim.
There are numerous things drivers try to do when they should be concentrating on driving, such as:
- Using a mobile that is not hands free
- Texting or sending messages
- Tuning the radio or changing a CD
- They can be distracted by passengers
- Reading a map without pulling over first
- Doing hair or make up
- Eating or drinking
- Adjusting the seat, they should pull over first
Most of these things are common sense but if you travel in the rush hour traffic in the mornings you will see drivers doing careless things like this, most days of the week.

There are many other reasons for road traffic accidents, just a few of them being:
- Exceeding speed limits
- Jumping red light
- Not using traffic island in the correct manner
- Ignoring road signs
- Potholes and bad road surfaces
- Overtaking when it is unsafe to
- Pulling out of junctions too soon
- Misjudging the speed or intentions of other drivers
Some drivers have no patience at all and will take unnecessary risks so that they do not have to sit in a line of traffic or to get to their destination 5 minutes earlier. Not that they do anything with the 5 minutes they have saved, just endanger themselves and others to gain it.
