Several vehicles are clogging up major roads and streets in Los Angeles, creating a traffic jam.
Impatient drivers will try to find a way into the traffic resulting in multiple vehicle accidents. Here are the main causes why vehicle accidents occur in Los Angeles:
Driving while being intoxicated with alcohol is the leading cause of vehicle accidents in Los Angeles. Almost every day, nearly 30 people die due to drunk driving and claim 100,000 lives each year.
Granted that California already legalized marijuana. However, even if it’s for medical purposes, people should not use it for personal enjoyment. Too much of the harmful substance tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) can create hallucinations, which can lead to vehicle collisions. The National Institute on Drug Abuse reports that marijuana is usually present in the driver’s blood, involved in vehicle accidents.
Stepping on the gas despite the oncoming traffic can result in a catastrophic injury. Who would want congestion on the road, especially when you’re already late for work? That’s why most drivers drive fast, putting everyone on the road at risk of being hit. Worse is, the driver may commit hit and run. In a situation such as this, contact the LA Injury Group to represent you from a hit and run case.
The advent of technology gives us comfort and make things easier to do. However, there are also associated consequences when driving, such as distraction. Distracted drivers usually hit pedestrians and bicyclists as they read or send messages or surfing the internet while driving.
Another common reason for vehicle accidents in Los Angeles is the driver’s disregard for traffic signs and signals. When drivers don’t follow traffic rules, you know what happens next - a vehicle accident. Road misfortunes occur because the driver beat the red light or didn’t yield to pedestrians.
Driving at night can be dangerous because of poor visibility. Weary drivers, because of fatigue, especially those intoxicated, have higher chances of encountering road accidents. Additionally, traffic signals are not much visible to drivers who have poor vision. Other drivers tend to have bright headlights that could almost blind the driver of an oncoming vehicle.
Rage driving can also be associated with speeding. This occurs mostly with young and inexperienced drivers and those who are always in a hurry. This practice and kind of attitude will lead to accidents and injuries.
If you suffer injuries due to the other driver’s rage driving, speak with the LA Injury Group. Our skilled vehicle collision lawyers can maximize your compensation and get hold of the defendant liable for your injuries. In most cases, the plaintiff (victim) can receive punitive damages because of the other party’s egregious behavior.
If there’s speeding, there’s also slow driving. A nervous driver tends to drive slowly, especially young ones and elderlies. They can’t decide whether to turn or not and sometimes step on the brake inaccurately. However, in California, driving too slowly is forbidden. A driver at the back of the slow driver will risk overtaking that might cause a head-on collision.
