Road injury is the most undesirable matter to occur to a street user, even though they occur quite frequently. The unfortunate thing is we do not learn from our errors on the street. The majority of the street users are very well aware of the overall rules and security measures when using streets but it’s merely the laxity within users, that cause crashes and accidents. The main reason for crashes and accidents are the result of human mistakes.
A car accident is a collision involving an automobile (car) and anything that causes damage to the automobile, happens with the recklessness of the driver or any technical issue in the car. A car accident is a very big issue which creates many problems for a person related to this accident. Sometimes a person is about to lose his life.
Car accidents are unfortunately very common in the United States and the majority of these road crashes are caused by human error. While some are relatively minor, thousands of lives are taken every year by these horrible car crashes. Because your life can be at risk if you drive in an unsafe manner, it is so important to drive carefully and follow all traffic laws.
Car accidents are a type of road traffic accident, where a car hits another vehicle, person or object. Many car accidents are caused by reckless or drunk driving, but can also happen because of dangerous road conditions such as potholes or icy weather.
Unfortunately, car accidents can cause serious injuries for the driver and passengers, as well as posing a danger to cyclists, motorcyclists, pedestrians and all other road users.
There are so many reasons for car accidents. Like
- Distracted driving
- Drunk driving
- Poor road maintenance
- Running road lights
- Running stop signs
- Teenage drivers
- Night driving
- Stray animals
- Design defects
- Unsafe lane changes
- Wrong way driving
- Improper turns
- Driving Under the Influence of Drugs
- Untrained drivers
- Drowsy driving
- Deadly curves
- Street racing
- Drive without given signs
- Avoiding safety gears
- Pedestrians’ carelessness
While some accidents are simple to rear-end collisions or fender benders, a lot of accidents that occur are a much bigger deal. In a six-year span, 196,236 people died in auto accidents. If we all pay attention to traffic safety laws and avoid risky driving habits, maybe we can decrease the number of vehicle crashes resulting in fatalities and injured drivers.
Prevention of car accidents
Prevention of car accidents is mandatory. To avoid losses of life and damages of things we have to reduce car accidents. First, we should know the main reasons for this than we have to work on it. There are some ways to reduce car accidents-
- Better Roads
- Better signage
- Fewer words per minute per mile
- Fewer decisions per minute per mile,
- No left exits or entrances
- All roads one-way
- No intersections
- Equalize traffic vehicle
- No parallel parking
- Free and SAFE sleep-parking
- No always-on police speed radar,
- Newer safer vehicles
- Flexible speed limits
- Heads-up-display of vehicle information and travel information,
- Clear forward view
- Eliminate roadside obstructions
- Visual, physical, and acoustic lane markers
- Driver-aligned traffic lights
- Timed red/yellow/green lights
- Horn-fired missiles
- Cameras everywhere,
- Night lighting especially around busy interaction points
- Eliminate non-traffic signage
- Soft crash barriers
There are so many other ways to reduce car accidents. Firstly the drive must be aware of his responsibilities and be aware while driving. Avoid distractions. Loud music can also deter your focus as it’s easy to get lost in the moment. Don’t text or call while driving (not even while using a Bluetooth headset). Never argue while you’re in a moving vehicle. Make sure the vehicle and the driver are in good condition. Run pre-trip checks and ensure that everything’s in tip-top shape (the engine, breaks, gears, etc.). This also includes not consuming copious amounts of alcohol and/or using illegal drugs. These substances can reduce cognitive function and may lessen your response time. For long-distance travel, always have a good night sleep before going on the road and make stops when needed.
