It is said that we risk our lives every time we step into an automobile. Car accidents are commonplace on news channels and even on the commute to and from work; but why? Learning the causes behind these serious accidents is the first step to car accident prevention.

Most Common Causes of a New Jersey Car Accident

  • Driver Distraction: the inspiration for the current wave of cell phone laws, driver distraction is listed as the leading cause of America's car accidents. Any time you take your eyes off the road, whether it is to answer a text message, get a better view of another accident or even kill a mosquito, you could be risking your life and health.
  • Driver fatigue: studies have found that driving drowsy is comparable to driving drunk; a fatigued driver is a danger to themselves and anyone else with whom they share the road.
  • Bad Weather Conditions: Ice, snow, fog and rain are just a few weather conditions that can make the roads more dangerous. Car accidents are more likely to occur any time your visibility is greatly limited, or your traction on the road anything less optimal.
  • Medical or Emotional Impairment: the driver's state of mind is important. Drugs that make your drowsy or a recent breakup can impair your judgment in ways similar to alcohol inebriation.
