Common Car Accident Causes in Los Angeles
There are a multitude of causes for car accidents. However, some of the most commonly seen ones include:
Any activity that diverts the driver’s attention away from the operation of the motor vehicle results in distracted driving. The only way to drive safely is to devote your complete attention to the act of driving. Examples of distracted driving include engaging in any of the following activities while operating a motor vehicle:
- Talking on the telephone
- Eating and/or drinking
- Applying makeup
- Talking with/interacting with other passengers
- Changing radio stations
Driving Under the Influence (DUI)
DUI is a factor in too many car accidents, especially considering it is entirely preventable. In 2018, in Los Angeles alone, there were 7,389 injuries and fatalities resulting from drivers operating vehicles while under the influence of alcohol. It is important to remember you can be considered driving under the influence if you have ingested substances other than alcohol, such as drugs that impact your ability to drive. This applies to both illegal and prescribed drugs.
A benefit to living in California is we mainly have blue skies and plenty of sunshine. However, we do occasionally have inclement weather that results in making our roadways a little more dangerous. Examples include:
- Rain & hail
Reckless and Aggressive Driving
Reckless driving is engaging in unsafe behavior while driving. Aggressive driving is also the act of engaging in unsafe behavior, but it also intends to scare or otherwise harass other motorists. Examples of these types of behavior include:
- Cutting off another vehicle
- Disregarding traffic signals and signs
- Failure to use turn signals
Lack of adequate sleep can lead to the same cognitive impairment as driving under the influence of alcohol, which is why it is imperative to be well-rested before getting behind the wheel.
