Leading Causes of Car Accidents in Canada
Most motorists know the dangers of getting behind the wheel, but its easy to rely on ego and habit when youre an experienced driver. Some motorists have bad habits, and others may focus solely on safety, but mistakes happen to everyone. Some accident causes arent even attributed to a driver!
Any of these factors can lead to a car crash:
- Impaired driving
- Mechanical defects
- Poor road conditions
- Street racing
Even the most vigilant of drivers cant always prevent an accident from happening, but one of the measures a motorist can take is to drive defensively. Staying alert is paramount to staying safe on the road and using defensive driving skills can help you be prepared to maneuver quickly when faced with a potential accident. Staying out of an accident is the only way to avoid sustaining injuries.
