Major Causes of Car Accidents

Human error, environmental causes and mechanical failures are major causes of car accidents. Human factors include:

  • Distracted Driving – This includes activities that take a driver’s eyes off the road, including texting, eating, or reaching for items which have fallen on the floor.
  • Impaired Driving – Impaired driving includes driving under the influence of drugs, alcohol or prescription medication. Impaired driving slows driver reaction time and negatively affects coordination and judgment.
  • Speeding – Speeding contributes to the severity of accidents by increasing the stopping distance, decreasing driver reaction time and reducing the effectiveness of seat belts and other restraints.
  • Aggressive Driving – Aggressive driving includes speeding, weaving in and out of traffic, tailgating and excessive honking,
  • Failure to Obey Traffic Laws – This includes running red lights, failing to obey road signs, illegal passing and failure to obey right-of-way rules.
  • Inexperienced Drivers – Young and inexperienced drivers can cause accidents due to lack of driving experience and judgment.

Environmental factors include poor weather conditions such as rain, snow, sleet and ice. These weather elements can make road surfaces hazardous, reduce traction, and hamper driver visibility. Environmental factors may also include such hazards as rock slides.

Mechanical failures include vehicle malfunctions such as brake failures, tire blowouts, or steering difficulties are often the cause of car accidents.
