There is never a 100% complete way to avoid an accident, but it can certainly reduce your chances of having them if we pay attention when driving and avoid any kind of distraction.
Car accidents do not stop, in fact, and in the last six months have reached record figures. No one wants to be involved in an accident, as your life can be in danger and can be very costly.
Despite high accident numbers and so many people who have lost their lives, many people still do not obey the rules of the road, especially for younger drivers who do not take seriously the seriousness of the matter.
However, most car accidents are preventable, we just need to drive responsibly, not be distracted and respect the rules of the road. This will certainly help reduce accidents.
Five reasons why car accidents happen.
The main cause of a car accident is driving over the stated speed limit. Driving faster than the limit, even 10 miles per hour (mph), can easily cause an accident and affect the drivers around.
Cell phones, screens, GPS devices and other electronic devices are distractors that make you take your eyes off the road. Obviously, if the driver’s eyes do not look at the road, this will increase the chances of him having an accident.
Winter, rain, and snowstorms can limit the ability to see through the windshield. The less you can see, the greater your chances of having an accident.
People never seem to learn about the dangers of alcohol and driving. Driving under the influence of alcohol or other substances increases the chances of serious accidents.
5.- Night driving
The darkness of the night will increase the chances of an accident because you can’t see as clearly as you can during the day. Even if it has headlights, they don’t produce the same kind of light to the environment as the sun.
