Motor vehicle accidents can happen from a multitude of reasons.  Some of these reasons are:

  • Distracted Driving – Some of the common things which distract drivers are talking on a cell phone, texting, reaching for objects or eating. Stay safe by giving the road your full attention.
  • Drunk Driving – When driving under the influence of alcohol you lose the ability to function properly and focus. Always assign a designated driver.
  • Speeding – Speeding can kill. The faster your speed, the slower your reaction time may be to prevent an accident.  Travel within the speed limits.
  • Running Red Lights or Stop Signs – Red lights mean stop. Crashing lights or stop signs can cause side-impact car accidents or rollovers.  Obey the signs.
  • Wrong-Way Driving – Driving down the street in the wrong direction can cause head-on collisions. Stay alert and don’t drive distracted.
