Being in a car accident is something nobody would want to happen. That's why you should read through the most common causes for car accidents, so you can learn to avoid them.

How to Avoid Common Reasons for Car Crashes

Car accidents can be dangerous, stressful, costly, and horrifying. But that's not all they can be: they can also be deadly. According to the Association for Safe International Road Travel, over 37, 000 Americans die in car accidents every year. If you don't want to be part of this statistic, continue reading this post to find out the most common reasons for car accidents, and how you can avoid them.

Pay Attention to the Road

It can be easy to get distracted when you're driving. After all, the road and the act of driving can be kind of repetitive after some time. However, the whole panorama can change in the blink of an eye, which is why you should always pay attention to the road. This means that you should refrain from texting, talking on the phone, eating, changing the radio station, or even turning to speak to your passengers. Your whole attention needs to be on the road and the people/objects/cars in it.

Follow the Traffic Signs

While you may think that traffic signs are useless at times, they are there to provide information on how to best navigate the road you're going through. Traffic signs aren't random: they are strategically placed in their spots according to research and consideration of the road you're on. That's why it is extremely important that you follow them when you drive if you want to reach your destination completely unharmed. So, slow down next time you see a "speed limit" sign, and always stop at the red light.

Keep Your Vehicle in Top Shape

Vehicular malfunction can also be to blame for many of the accidents that happen on the road. And it's easy to understand why: faulty breaks, damaged tires, failing engines, can put drivers in difficult positions when speeding down the road. To correct that situation, you just need to take your vehicle to a mechanic for routine inspections on a regular basis (or right when you notice something is wrong with your vehicle), as they will be able to ensure your vehicle will remain working as perfectly as possible for longer.

Be Aware of the Weather

Driving on a dry road during a sunny day is risky enough. Needless to say, if the weather conditions are less than ideal, that risk can increase significantly. Foggy, snowy, and rainy days see more car accidents than normal, as drivers are often unprepared for or unfazed by the slippery roads, their blurred vision, and other changing conditions. To be safe on those days, remember to keep a greater distance between you and those around you, avoid speeding, and be on even higher alert than normal.

Avoid Driving Under the Influence

One of the worst things you can do is drive while under the influence of alcohol and/or drugs. This is because these substances impair your judgement, your motor skills, your senses, and your ability to react to situations, all of which creates the perfect recipe for a disastrous car crash. If you've been drinking or getting high, your best bet is to wait for the effects come down, or to take an alternative form of transportation (a taxi, a bus, a ride with a sober friend, etc.). Plus, this way, you won't be breaking the law, either.

Don't Drive While Tired

The final most common reason for car accidents has to do with driving while tired. Once again, doing so can alter your senses, your attention, and your response to outside stimuli; not to mention, you could fall asleep behind the wheel, which would certainly lead to a car wreck. For that reason, if you're ever driving and you begin to feel tired, you should stop to rest, or ask someone to take over for you (if it's possible). Many will depend on caffeine or sugar to wake them up, but you should be careful when doing so, as it may not be very effective.
