Several bad driving habits that can cause a serious accident

| Apr 17, 2019 | Car Accidents

Most Cincinnati area residents understand the importance of safe driving. However, some drivers still engage in bad habits that can cause serious car accidents.

The National Transportation Safety Board recently released a list of the top ten safety enhancements that can be made to make people safer on the road. Many of these enhancements focus on drivers’ actions. Items on the list include eliminating distractions, speeding, impairment and fatigue.

Distracted driving continues to be a major cause of accidents in Cincinnati and across the U.S. In 2017, distracted driving was linked to 3,100 traffic deaths. Speeding is another behavior that can easily be avoided. At least 10,000 deaths are linked to speeding each year in the U.S. Driver impairment is another major problem that can be easily avoided and is reported to cause 11,000 deaths each year.

Those who live in Ohio understand that car accidents happen every day. Many of these accidents are preventable because drivers choose to engage in dangerous driving behaviors. If a person has been injured in an accident due to no fault of their own, they may want to speak with a legal professional who is skilled in personal injury. An attorney can review the situation surrounding the accident and help determine what happened. Compensation may be available for medical expenses, pain and suffering, lost wages and other damages.

When a car accident could have been prevented by making better decisions, families are often left wondering what happened and how they are going to get through this stressful situation. It is important to hold negligent drivers responsible for their actions, so that they don’t harm anyone else.
