Rock Hill Car Accident Lawyers Share the Top 3 Causes of Auto Crashes, Rock Hill, South Carolina

Every year, between 20 and 50 million people are injured in car accidents on American roads. This alarmingly high number illustrates just how important it is to take precautions every time you get behind the wheel. To help you do that, the car accident lawyers at Love-Sloan Law, LLC, in Rock Hill, SC, discuss the common causes of automobile crashes, so you know what to be mindful of.

Top 3 Perpetrators of Car Accidents

1. Distracted Driving

car accident lawyerDrivers who are distracted by other tasks are the most frequent source of car accidents. This encompasses anything that takes your attention off the road, from focusing on other people in the vehicle to fiddling with radio dials. Using a cellphone is particularly dangerous; South Carolina prohibits texting while driving, but there is no ban in the state on using a handheld device for voice calls. Remember: more important than any conversation is the safe arrival at your destination.

2. Excessive Speed

Someone who speeds is turning over control of their vehicle to chance. It only takes one sharp turn, a faulty area in the road, or another reckless driver to cause an accident. Obey all posted limits of speed, and if you are unsure or don't see any signs, then keep a steady pace with the others around you.

3. Drunk Driving

Every day, 28 people die in drunk driving accidents. Being under the influence impairs your ability to safely navigate your vehicle through even the simplest routes. If you've been drinking, never take the risk. Hand over your keys to someone you trust, call a cab, or stay with a friend. You could be saving a life.
