How Do Most Tucker Car Accidents Happen?

Car accidents can happen for many different reasons, including mechanical failures, such as tire blowouts; inclement weather conditions, such as heavy rain; and roadway hazards, such as fallen trees or branches. Nevertheless, most wrecks are caused by some type of driver negligence. Among the most common causes are:

  • Aggressive driving: Operating a motor vehicle in a manner that endangers persons or property is aggressive driving. It is a combination of moving traffic offenses, including speeding, swerving in and out of traffic, tailgating, running red lights or stop signs, passing on the right, and cutting other drivers off.
  • Drunk or drugged driving: According to the NHTSA, approximately 31% of all traffic crash fatalities in the U.S. involve drunk drivers. Drug-impaired driving has also become a serious threat on the roadways. Of drivers involved in serious injury or fatal crashes, 56% tested positive for at least one drug, as reported by NHTSA.
  • Failure to yield the right of way: We all have to share the road, and failure to yield the right of way is a common cause of car accidents. Drivers who fail to yield to existing traffic when merging from an on-ramp or yield to oncoming traffic when turning left at an intersection can cause serious injuries to others.
  • Negligent lane changes: All vehicles have blind spots, and drivers have a responsibility to check them carefully before changing lanes. When they fail to do so, they can collide with other motorists.
  • Drowsy driving: Driving after more than 20 hours without sleep is equivalent to driving with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08%, according to the National Safety Council (NSC). Driving drowsy triples the risk of being involved in a crash.
  • Distracted driving: Driver distraction has become a major problem on the roadways today. Drivers who are texting, checking social media, talking on the phone, or otherwise distracted behind the wheel put others on the road at risk.
