Car wrecks are a scary occurrence. What's even scarier is thinking that most of them could be avoided if people just paid attention to the road, followed the rules, and maintained their vehicle. To help you stay out of trouble, below you'll find the most common reasons why car wracks happen, so you can keep them in mind and steer clear of them at all costs.

Why Car Wrecks Happen

The Driver Wasn't Paying Attention to the Road

After a while, people get comfortable with driving and forget that it's a dangerous activity that requires their full attention. Instead, they allow their minds to get distracted with the tunes on the radio, with texts from friends/family on their cell phone, with the camera in their hands, and more. The thing is that being distracted, even for just a second, can result in a car wreck since the circumstances on the road can change dramatically from one instant to the next. That's why you should always keep your focus on your driving.

They Were Ignoring the Traffic Signs

When you first got your driver's license, you had to take a test regarding traffic rules and the meaning of traffic signs. However, that test wasn't just a formality, you had to pass it for a reason: you need to actually apply that knowledge, pay attention to, and follow the traffic signs on the road. Failing to do so (for example, speeding, or not stopping during a red light), can lead to a car wreck, injuries, and worse, to you, your passengers, and those around you, so don't risk it.

The Weather Outside was Frightful

As mentioned above, driving can be a dangerous activity (especially if you're not careful). However, the stakes get way higher when the weather outside isn't cooperating. Raindrops, snow, hail, and other forms of precipitation, can make the roads slippery and your vision blurry, which can easily lead to a car wreck if you don't take certain preventive measures. For example, if you find yourself driving in poor weather, keep a greater distance between your vehicle and the objects around you, don't speed, and keep your headlights on at all times. Hopefully, these will help you get to your destination safely.

The Vehicle Wasn't in Optimum Condition

Though a mechanic/electrical malfunction isn't as common of a reason as the others mentioned in this post, it should still be pointed out, as it can be completely preventable. That's why you should take your vehicle to a mechanic on a regular basis for routine inspections, and make sure that your vehicle has all of its requirements fulfilled. This way, you won't run the risk of slamming into another object because your tire flew off, because the engine wasn't responding properly, or because your brakes weren't working as they should. One of the best ways to maintain your engine is to change its oil on a regular basis. If your engine needs new oil, call Bronson Distributors at (570) 309-2102 to get your hands on the best AMSOIL products for it, such as the top performing synthetic oil.

There Were Drugs/Alcohol in the Driver's Body

Driving under the influence of alcohol and drugs can result in expensive fines, jail time, accidents, damages, injuries, deaths, and more. This is because being drunk or high behind the wheel can lead to you making bad decisions, not being fully focused on the road, and not responding to the situations effectively. For those reasons, it's strongly recommended that if you've been drinking or using drugs, you wait until their effects pass before you drive. If you can't wait, have a sober friend or a cab take you where you need to go.

The Driver Fell Asleep Behind the Wheel

Finally, another common reason why car accidents happen, is that the driver falls asleep behind the wheel, loses control of the machine, and crashes into other cars, people, or objects around. Again, this horrible situation can be completely avoided if you just avoid drowsy driving. To that end, make sure that you're well-rested so your brain can focus when driving. Moreover, don't depend on caffeinated or sugary drinks to keep you up, since more often than not, you won't get the results you want.
