Car accidents can cause immense physical, financial, and emotional damage; tend to be both dangerous and terrifying; and are often caused by driver negligence. As motorists, we owe one another a duty of care that includes obeying the rules of the road, and those drivers who are negligent in this duty are often at the heart of car accident claims.
If a car accident that was caused by someone else’s negligence leaves you seriously injured, 388CEDA offers the full range of medical services and care that you seek, but we can also recommend an experienced car accident lawyer near Broward County if you would like us to and if you request that we do so.
Most car accidents boil down to plain old driver negligence, which comes in far too many life-threatening forms.
Some motorists simply refuse to abide by the rules of the road. This can mean refusing to drive at a safe speed (relative to what is happening on the road) or failing to obey traffic signs, lights, or signals. Motorists who believe the rules do not apply to them are especially dangerous drivers who often cause serious car accidents.
Motorists who don’t focus on driving safely put the rest of us at immense risk. While distractions come in far too many varieties, the distraction that is universally considered the most dangerous of all is texting (and other smartphone activities). Because texting involves all three forms of distraction – hands, eyes, and thoughts – it leaves drivers incapable of driving safely. In the five seconds it takes to write or read a text (on average), a motorist can travel about the length of a football field (when driving at highway speeds), which is far too long to drive blind.
Drunk drivers experience slowed reaction times in addition to physical, cognitive, and sensory impairments, which add up to serious danger. When you factor in the fact that alcohol melts away inhibitions and good judgement, it makes the situation that much more alarming.
Drowsy drivers are uniquely dangerous because they often fail to recognize that they’re impaired in their own right and that they shouldn’t be behind the wheel. The truth is that drowsy drivers suffer impairments that are similar to those experienced by drunk drivers, which means they can be exceptionally dangerous drivers.
Drivers who speed excessively help make dangerous accidents more likely, but the matter doesn’t end there. Excess speed also helps to ensure that any accidents that do happen will be fatal. Driving at a safe speed is about more than just obeying the speed limit. Motorists must take all of the following into consideration when determining a safe driving-speed:
Speed plays far too pivotal a role in deadly traffic accidents not to take it extremely seriously.
