Auto accidents are one of the most frequent causes of serious injuries and fatalities. These accidents are also among the most preventable. Drivers who exercise proper caution, follow the rules of the road, and drive with all due courtesy can greatly reduce their chances of being involved in an injury accident.
However, these drivers must also share the road with motorists who exercise less restraint when driving. Some drivers take their frustrations out on other innocent motorists. Others drown (or drug) their sorrows before hitting the road. Many drivers fail to carry out even simple maintenance tasks on their vehicles, making them unsafe at any speed. These issues can all lead to accidents that can cause serious injuries or death.
