It’s easy to get distracted while driving, especially during slow moving traffic hours or if you’re in a rush. Here are the top six reasons why accidents happen.
1. Texting While Driving –
You know that feeling when you look over at the car next to you and you realize they are texting? That is a scary feeling that most California drivers experience when they are behind the wheel. As you may know, Southern California is filled with texting-while-driving offenders. If you see a person texting while they are driving (or trying to), avoid driving near them as much as possible.
2. Alcohol or Drug Consumption –
We probably don’t have to tell you that you should not be behind the wheel if you are under the influence.
Substance Abuse + Car = ☹
3. Speeding –
Speeding increases your chance of losing control of the wheel. So don’t go over the speed limit!
4. Fatigue –
Make sure to get enough shut eye before going behind the wheel. Pull over if you feel like you’re falling asleep and/or be sure to drink your morning coffee.
5. Eating While Driving
Many people believe that eating while driving is perfectly normal and food-on the-go is the only way to go. This is not true. Reckless and distracted driving can put you, your family, your friends, and your fellow drivers in harm’s way.
Do not allow yourself to be distracted while driving because an accident can happen anytime, anywhere. If you or a loved one have been in a collision due to reckless driving, The Accident Guys are here to provide you legal guidance. Call for a free consultation at 877-888-GUYS.
