Understanding The Most Common Causes Of Car Accidents

 Car accidents can be caused by a variety of factors. Let’s discuss some of the statistics behind car accidents now, based on a study by the Department of Transportation.

  • Interior non-driving activity (eating, using a cellphone, applying makeup, etc) was found in about 18% of all car accidents studied in the survey, making distracted driving a big factor in serious and fatal car accidents.
  • Driver fatigue was a factor in about 7% of studied crashes. Fatigued drivers are more than twice as likely to make performance errors that result in a serious auto accident.
  • Poor roadway conditions were found in more than 16.3% of accidents. Accidents caused by speeding were much more common when poor roadway conditions were an accident factor.
  • Car accidents were the most common when turning or crossing an intersection (36%), running off the edge of the road (22%) or failing to stay in the proper lane (11%).

In addition, driver negligence has been found to be a major factor in causing car accidents. A study by AAA revealed that, in the previous month, 93% of drivers had engaged in some kind of negligent or risky driving behavior.

13% of drivers had driven while “buzzed” or drunk, 32% of drivers had driven while they were tired enough to fall asleep at wheel, and 48% of drivers had exceeded posted speed limits by more than 15 miles per hour.
