Why Do Accidents Happen?
Car accidents occur for two reasons: driver error and external factors. Driver error accounts for the majority of car accidents, and a few notable driver errors cause the bulk of automobile crashes.

Distracted driving. From cell phones to eating and drinking on the road, studies have shown that distracted driving can be incredibly dangerous. Distracted drivers lose focus and reaction time, unable to make the corrections needed to avoid accidents.

Drowsy driving. Driving while tired is commonly overlooked, but equally as dangerous as driving under the influence.

Reckless driving. Aggressive drivers that speed, run red lights, tailgate, and ignore traffic laws are big contributors to accident numbers.

Driving under the influence. Drugs and alcohol impair drivers by reducing reaction time. Drunk driving accidents are often fatal for the driver and the occupants of the other vehicle involved.
