Fatal Car Accidents in California
Fatal crashes in California take the lives of thousands of people annually. Far too often, these accidents involve some form of negligence. Some of the most common causes of fatal crashes that we see here in our state include:
- Reckless driving: Reckless driving behaviors like tailgating, weaving in and out of traffic, or running red lights increase your risk of being involved in an accident. These actions show a disregard for other motorists on the road and can easily lead to a collision.
- Drunk driving: Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs impairs your ability to operate a vehicle safely. Not only does it make it harder to concentrate and react to things on the road, but it also slows down your reflexes and decision-making abilities.
- Speeding: Excessive speed is one of the leading causes of car accidents. Speeding makes it difficult to control your vehicle and leaves less time to react to hazards on the road.
- Fatigued driving: Fatigued driving is often caused by drivers who are not getting enough sleep or who are working long hours. When you’re tired, it’s harder to concentrate and stay alert, which can lead to mistakes while behind the wheel.
