Two-Vehicle Collision Statistics
Every sixty seconds, a car accident occurs in the U.S. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), over 3,304 recorded fatal car accidents in California in 2017. These accidents are caused by various reasons, such as distracted driving, drunk driving, and driver over-fatigue.
Negligence, recklessness, and breaking the law are at the heart of most “accidents.” Attention to the road, competence behind the wheel, and proper vehicle maintenance can reduce the odds of getting into a collision.
