Know the Common Causes of Road Accidents

Updated on May 26, 2017

Accidents have become quite common. Statistics have found out that most of the accidents are caused by the teens and the younger lot of the people. Thus, proper measures need to be taken so that the accidents can be prevented. The common reasons for the accident cases that we all come across in our daily life are as follows:

Unsafe Driving

Accidents from the error of the drivers happens the most. These errors can be because the drivers might have fallen asleep while driving, overtaking in an unsafe manner, or driving too fast. Other irresponsible activities might also cause accidents. Distractions are also a part of the driver error in which the driver might be distracted from driving by something or incident either inside or outside the car. Attending phone calls is also a cause of distraction which can cause accidents. Checking the mirror, changing music, etc. are some other examples.

Liquor or Drug Effect

Now, this is a common problem. The youths are more interested in tasting everything. Often in their enthusiasm, they forget to understand the difference between good and bad. They take to drinking and cross the limits. Becoming highly intoxicated with drugs or alcohol they lose all control over themselves. So, it is natural that they commit accidents.

Adverse Weather Conditions

Rarely though but accident also might occur as a consequence of bad weather. Of the weather is bad and foggy then it causes reduced visibility for the driver. The road surfaces also might get bad traction. This can be a great cause for causing a collision between cars or with any object that is on or beside the road. Unpredictable weather conditions such as black ice or flash floods can lead to accident conditions.

Vehicle Defects

A defect in the vehicle being driven may also be the cause of an accident. The most common instances found are a failure of the brakes or bursting of the tires. Not only that in some cases it have been found that technical defects make the accidents a severe one than it could have been. Recently, in an accident, it was found that the airbags did not deploy on time causing the passenger to succumb to fatal injuries and consequent death.

To prevent these kinds of road accidents proper prevention should be taken. This includes careful driving, avoiding drugs and alcohol. One should be conscious while driving and should not get distracted from the road. Avoiding rash driving can also help to escape accidents.
