Get advice today. Get the facts about auto accidents
Did you know that road traffic accidents are one of the most common causes of injuries in the UK today and that in 2012, there were a total of 197,730 casualties that occurred as a direct result of auto accidents on our roads?
So, what are the most common causes of auto accidents on our roads today?
There are many reasons why so many accidents occur every year but to get the facts about auto accidents, here is a guide to some of the most common causes:
- The driver failed to look properly
By far the most common cause of auto accidents, it seems that once many drivers pass their test, the drill of mirror, signal, manoeuvre takes a back seat, leaving other drivers vulnerable.
- Misjudged another driver’s speed or path
This seems like a silly mistake but is actually one of the top causes of accidents on our roads. Whilst new drivers tend to be overly cautious of surrounding traffic, many more experienced drivers become complacent about other drivers and it is this complacency that is often the cause of road traffic accidents.
- Careless driving or reckless driving
Every day the papers contain stories regarding careless or reckless drivers, who neglect not only their own personal safety but that of pedestrians and other drivers.
