Car Accident Causes & Traffic Violations

South Bay Automobile Accident Lawyers

A wide range of negligent driving habits can lead to a traffic collision. According to the California DMV (Department of Motor Vehicles), distracted driving and drunk driving are two of the primary reasons for traffic accidents in California. Other causes include driving on the wrong side of the road, improper turns, unsafe speeding, stop sign violations, and red light violations.

Driving on the wrong side of the road is serious traffic violation. Additionally, it is very dangerous and often leaders to fatal, head-on collisions. Motorists are likely to make this mistake while driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

An improper turn refers to any violation that involves an illegal turn. This might include a prohibited U-turn, or a legal turn executed without a turn signal. If a motorist fails to warn other drivers that he / she is turning, the likelihood of an accident increases.

Speed is a determining factor in many traffic accidents. Even if the car's speed was not responsible for the accident, excessive speed can easily aggravate the consequences of the collision, such as injuries and property damage. Visit our page about speed-related car accidents for more information.

Stop sign / red light violations are especially common in urban areas. These violations often lead to T-bone accidents, when one vehicle slams into the side of the other car. Although some intersections have cameras to catch violators, they cannot prevent accidents.
