What Causes Single-Vehicle Accidents?
According to the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), single-vehicle collisions represent more than half of all car accidents in the United States. Furthermore, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that these type of accidents are more likely to occur on rural roads and roads with hewer traffic lanes. Oftentimes, single-vehicle accidents take place when a driver runs off the road or onto the shoulder for some reason, colliding with an inanimate object. It is true that there are an endless number of scenarios that can result in a single-vehicle collision, some of which include the following:
- Impact with an object in the road. This could be an object that has fallen off another car or running into the median, for example.
- Distracted driving. Distractions while driving can range from texting to talking on the phone to engaging with passengers in the car. When a driver is distracted it could cause him to run off the road or collide with a median.
- Drowsy driving. Falling asleep at the wheel can cause a driver to veer off the road and crash into trees, a guardrail, the median, or other objects.
- Impaired driving. Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol could cause a driver to lose control of the vehicle and crash.
- Inclement weather conditions. Rain, snow, ice, and fog can all contribute to a single-vehicle crash.
- Mechanical failure or defect. A problem with a car’s tires, steering, or brakes could all result in a single-vehicle accident.
As you can see, there are many reasons for a single-car accident, ranging from defective vehicle systems, poorly done previous car repairs, problems with the road surface, improper road signs, and so on.
