I did some research this morning on car accident risk factors and cause statistics. There are several factors that all interplay with each other – basically if you do one, you increase your rate of car accidents but if you do two you multiply your risk levels of getting into a car accident.
The car accident risk factors to be most aware of are:
- Alcohol consumption
- Being under 25 years old
- Distracted driving (phone call, texting, people in car, GPS, radio)
- Running a red light or stop sign
- Driving at night
Mechanical factors include:
- Vehicle defects
- Ice or snow
- Tire blowouts
