Why road traffic accidents happen
Road traffic accidents happen for many reasons, the most common being a lack of concentration on the part of the driver at fault. Other driver errors, such as driving too close to the vehicle in front, account for many more of the accidents. There are some that are because of potholes, and some because of a defect on the car, but if only drivers were more aware, there would be many fewer accidents and injuries on our roads.
We do fare better than the cars in the 1980’s when an average of 15 people a day lost their lives on our roads. Now, with 10,000 road traffic accidents every week in the UK, an average of 5 victims a day are killed. This is still too many lives being lost each day, but at least the figures are improving.
