Common Causes of Auto Accidents
All drivers are required to follow the rules and regulations for safe driving created by the Texas Department of Transportation. Texas drivers are supposed to be familiar with and follow these rules and regulations. Unfortunately that is not always the case and other drivers’ failure to follow these rules can result in tragic accidents causing serious injury or death.
Some of the most common and repeated causes of automobile accidents are listed below:
- Driver fatigue, including falling asleep, as a result of too many hours driving and too little rest or down time.
- Unsafe driving practices by drivers such as speeding, following too closely, making unsafe lane changes, failing to check for blind spots before turning or changing lanes, and overly aggressive driving
- Distracted Driving or inattentive driving resulting from talking on a cell phone or texting
- Driving under the influence (DUI) including Drunk Driving
