Most car accidents could be avoided if only the drivers had been more careful. To learn what you can do to steer clear of the 6 most common causes for car accidents, read this post.

How to Avoid Common Reasons for Car Crashes

According to the Association for Safe International Road Travel, over 37, 000 Americans die in car accidents every year. The saddest part of this is that in most cases, those car accidents could have been avoided if only the driver/drivers had been more careful behind the wheel. For that reason, in this post you'll find the 6 most common reasons for car crashes, as well as advice on how you can avoid them to stay safe on the road.

Be on High Alert

If you've ever texted somebody, talked on the phone, ate, wandered off, or have gotten distracted while you were driving, you immensely increased your chances of being part of a car crash. This is because driving requires 100% of your attention (after all, you're employing a big machine to go at high speeds). The situation in front of you could change immediately, and not paying attention means you won't be able to react accordingly to it. To avoid an accident because of distracted driving, always be on high alert.

Abide by Traffic Signs

One of the first things they teach you when you learn to drive is to identify and follow traffic signs. Then, why is it that ignoring traffic signs is one of the leading reasons why accidents happen? Whatever the case may be, you should know that traffic signs are there to inform you of the best ways to navigate the road you're driving through. By ignoring them, you are putting yourself and others in a risky situation. That's why, next time you drive, remember to abide by traffic signs to remain safe.

Maintain Your Vehicle Properly

In some cases, car crashes will happen due to a technical difficulty. Most of them, however, could have been easily avoided if the driver had done a good job at keeping up with their vehicle's maintenance. Through regular inspection, a professional mechanic would be able to notice and fix issues with the brakes, the tires, the engine, or other key component in the vehicle that could cause a mishap if it were to break down. So, remember to notice anything wrong with your vehicle, and to fix those issues promptly so you can drive safely.

Pay Attention to the Weather

The weather conditions can have more say in how safe you are while you drive than you know. This is because bad weather (rain, fog, snow, or other), can blur your vision, makes the roads slippery, and causes the driving conditions to change. That's why, if you don't want to have an accident because of the weather, you need to take that information and change how you drive accordingly: this means driving slowly, using your lights, staying further away from other objects, and being even more wary of the road and situations ahead.

Don't Drive While Under the Influence

A completely avoidable situation that you should never put yourself under is driving while under the influence of drugs and alcohol. This is because these substances will cloud your judgement, hinder your motion skills, slow down your reactions, and numb your senses, which is a surefire way to end up in a horrible car accident. That's why, if you've been out drinking or getting high, it is a far better idea to wait until you're sober or to ask for a ride, than drive while intoxicated.

Avoid Drowsy Driving

If you didn't sleep well, you've been driving for a long time, or you've just been tired for awhile, you may experience certain drowsiness while you drive. If you do, however, be sure to stop to rest or to have somebody else drive, as drowsy driving can also lead to car crashes. You could even fall asleep behind the wheel if you're extremely tired! It's not a good idea to trust caffeinated or sugary snacks, either. Your best bet is to sleep or rest for a bit before you keep on driving.
