Understand factors that lead to collisions so you can try to avoid them.
The most common causes of collisions are:
- Driver distractions
- Unsafe speed
- Improper turns
- Not following the right-of-way rules
- Not following stop signals and signs
- Driving on the wrong side of the road
- A vehicle traveling faster or slower than the flow of traffic
Avoid driving near collisions, if possible. If anyone is injured, they will get help faster if other vehicles are not blocking the road.
