Various Underlying Causes of St. Paul, Minnesota Car Accidents
While only approximately 20 percent of all car accidents in Minnesota are non-preventable, the other 80 percent of all accidents caused by negligent drivers need to stop. Non-preventable accidents mean that 20 percent of Minnesota accidents happen because no one could have done anything to prevent them from happening.
This other 80 percent of preventable car accidents concern our law firm. It makes no difference if these accidents are preventable or non-preventable; no one can foresee them from happening. There are, however, risk factors for every possible mishap, such as,
If you have had one drink, do not drive as you risk an accident.
If you are tired and on the brink of becoming sleepy, you must not drive until you rest for a spell. You do not get behind the wheel, or you pull your car over in a safe way and park where your car is not an attraction to other drivers, and you close your eyes and take a short nap. When you are driving, you know that your cell phone stays off, and if you must answer a call or text, you must pull your car over in a safe way and place to make or send a call or text.
Sleepy and Tired Driving
We know that there must be a victim and a negligent driver in this equation. There are various underlying causes for these 80 percent of preventable accidents. The first three causes sit at the pinnacle of all car accident causes.
- Drunk Driving
- Distracted Driving
- Overtired Drivers
The following underlying causes of preventable car accidents include the above and more.
Hazard Road Conditions
If you have ever driven your car during a blizzard or torrential rain, you probably noticed that some vehicles you share the road with do not know the road is hazardous because these drivers do not slow down. These individuals continue to drive fast as though nothing is wrong. Speeding cars during dangerous road conditions put other drivers at risk of an accident if these cars slide into them.
Animals on the Roadway
Multiple accidents happen every year due to deer jumping onto the roads and in front of cars. Thank goodness most drivers are sensitive to the wildlife and swerve to avoid hitting any animal, from squirrels to cats and dogs to larger animals living like deer. Swerving to avoid hitting an animal is noble but can cause a car accident.
If you receive a recall notice on your car, get your vehicle to a certified mechanic to fix the problem. Never risk an accident and injury to you, the driver, your passengers, and others on the road. Sometimes, while driving on the road, you have a flat tire or discover you have no breaks when you need your breaks to work. Good car maintenance can help cut the number of faulty cars on the road.
Some drivers have personal anger issues, and there is nothing you can do about this except to abide by the driving laws of Minnesota and avoid doing anything that offsets road rage. Realize that there is nothing you can do about the behavior of other drivers. Be prepared for aggressive and reckless drivers whenever you drive on the roadways. You may recognize these drivers, so stay a clear distance and worry about your actions.
Some drivers may not display road rage; they still must get in front of your car and seem like pushing you aside gets them to where they want to be quicker. When you meet up with these reckless drivers in a hurry, get out of their way as quickly as possible and let them have their way. It is not worth a potential car accident. Perhaps law enforcement is nearby and will catch them.
