Who Causes Collisions?

There are many different reasons why people always get in car accidents. Here are some very common attributes of people who usually get in car crashes and some simple solutions to stop bad habits. Inexperience

There are many inexperienced drives who are out on the streets. Inexperience can cause collisions because usually the driver either does not understand the rules and regulations of the road, or they panic in unusual situations. The definition of inexperienced is “ Lacking physical experience or training”. If you are an inexperienced driver you should always be cautious on the road and know what your doing. Don't go to fast if you know you are not capable is safely controlling your vehicle at high speeds. If you know your inexperienced, try driving with a friend or someone who can help/ instruct you on the way.

There are so many distractions that can lead to inattentive driving. I have only ever been in one car accident and I'm pretty sure it was mostly because of inattention. Our car was rear ended by a young man. I know that he was not paying attention because when the police showed up he said that he was looking down at his radio adjusting the channels. Inattention can cause serious accidents because the driver is is paying little to no attention on the road. How are you supposed to drive without paying attention? Some good habits to start considering if you know you are easily distracted are, putting electronic devices such as cell phone and I-pods away from your reach. You could also try actually paying attention to the road and maybe begin to understand how the traffic work in what area and how to avoid bad driving conditions.

Being inconsiderate is probably one of most impolite thing to do. Many drivers are usually inconsiderate to other drivers needs and conditions. They dint understand what the other driver is experiencing and usually assume that they are just a terrible driver. Inconsiderate driving can lead to easily avoidable crashes, that did not need to happen. An inconsiderate driver usually assess the situations and then promptly tries to either tell you what to do or take matters into there own hands. This behaviour can cause accidents because other drivers have no idea what you are planning to do. Some solutions you can use to stop your self from being an inconsiderate driver are, try putting yourself in other drivers shoes and see if you would feel upset with yourself and your actions. You can even ask family members or colleagues on what they think is inconsiderate and what is not. That will usually get you to have a good understanding of what being inconsiderate really is.

Impatience is one of the most common driving habits in the world. I know that everyone has heard a car impatiently honk their horn at car in front of them, beside them, and even at cars who are honking at other cars. Impatience can be easily avoided by following these simple steps: maybe you could plan out a different route which you know wont have as much traffic, try leaving earlier from your home to give you plenty of time to arrive at your destination, you can even try listening to calm and soothing music to help you calm down and calmly asses the situation. Ignorance

Ignorance is defined as “ Lack of knowledge or information”. Many drivers always think they know what there doing, which sometimes can lead to errors in driving and confidence that over rides practicality. One type of example of an ignorant driver would be speeding. Almost every accident related with speeding is cause by ignorance. The driver think that they can handle the speed but all of a sudden they start to lose traction and spin out of control inevitably injuring people in and around the car. Ignorance is one of the most frustrating causes of accidents for me, because all of the crashes could easily be prevented....
