Causes of Orange County Car Accidents

Many different types of situations and events may lead to a car accident, but driver behavior is often the cause of vehicle-related crashes and injuries. The faster a person drives, the greater the risk of an accident. In certain areas, even if a person exceeds the speed limit by 5 miles an hour, it could be deadly. Most people acknowledge that they are speeding, but ignore the possible danger of what said actions may cause.

Aggressive driving may also lead to car accidents. Aggressive driving usually occurs in the middle of the day on busy streets, which may endanger other motorists. Aggressive tailgating, flashing lights, rude gestures, and verbal abuse are just a few examples of aggressive driving. It is not to be confused with road rage, which involves using a vehicle as a weapon, or physically assaulting another driver.

Since technology is becoming interlaced with society's everyday thoughts and actions, distracted driving also causes a large portion of accidents. Whether a person is texting, talking on the phone, or trying to enter coordinates on their GPS, they are not paying attention to the road, and jeopardizing other drivers' lives.
