Speed is a common reason for auto accidents. It’s also the best predictor for the severity of accidents. People regularly disobey posted speed limits and drive too fast, often with tragic results. The faster someone drives, the less control they have over their vehicle, and the less time they have to react.
Rear-end collisions are also very common. They can be caused by tailgating, not paying attention to traffic on the road, or simply faulty or neglected brakes. Rear-end collisions are very common in high, stop-and-go traffic. Despite their reputation as a nuisance and as minor fender-benders, rear-end collisions can actually cause severe injuries from whiplash.
Driving while intoxicated is likely the most foolish and irresponsible way that accidents happen. People know not to drive after they’ve consumed too much alcohol, but get behind the wheel anyway. Then, they severely injure and kill other drivers on the road, usually all to save a few bucks on a taxi cab. Alcohol contributes to about 15 percent of all auto accident deaths in Florida, a number that will always be too high.
Drinking and driving is not the only irresponsible decision drivers make. Too many drivers do not keep their focus on the road. They might be holding conversations or trying to eat lunch. The second it takes to check a text message it all the time it takes to get in a severe accident and change the lives of people in another car forever.
