6 Most Common Causes of Car Accidents & Injuries in Florida

6 Most Common Causes of Car Accidents & Injuries in Florida

1. Driving too fast

Studies indicate that as many as one in three car accidents are caused by speeding. Driving faster means you are at increased risk of losing control of your vehicle. Not judging your own speed and that of vehicles around you correctly is a common cause of collisions. Braking distances are extended if you drive faster, and you need to react more quickly if other vehicles slow down or stop.

Allowing a little extra time for your journeys is an easy way of reducing the need to speed to get to your destination. Drivers on business trips are particularly prone to speed to keep up with their daily schedules.http://www.sungateinsurance.com/(407) 878-7979

2. Lack of experience

Younger drivers often complain about the high cost of auto insurance. Unfortunately there is strong evidence that a lack of experience leads to accidents, and this is why insurance companies charge higher premiums for young drivers. Like most skills, driving improves with experience. There's no substitute for developing an awareness of what happens on the road and how to deal with different situations safely.http://www.sungateinsurance.com/(407) 878-7979

3. Drunk driving

In spite of decades of campaigns to highlight the dangers of drinking alcohol and driving, over a million people are arrested for it every year in the United States. Even small amounts of alcohol can slow down reactions and impair driving ability, and it's totally irresponsible to risk drinking before you get behind the wheel. Avoid temptation by booking a taxi or making other travel plans if you know you're going to have a drink. If you believe someone you know is planning to drive after drinking, try to take their keys away.http://www.sungateinsurance.com/(407) 878-7979

4. Careless driving

This is one of the hardest reasons to understand. Tailgating and aggressive behaviour on the road leads to thousands of collisions and injuries every year. Using cell phones while driving can increase the risk of accidents by as much as four times. Other distractions include eating, smoking and checking maps while driving.http://www.sungateinsurance.com/(407) 878-7979
