DRIVING HABITS THAT CAUSE ACCIDENTS

It is important for every driver to stay safe while on the road. However, with all the distractions of life, we sometimes forget and that’s when an accident can happen. RHINO Lawyers want to keep you in the driver’s seat with a clean record. Here are some common driving habits that cause accidents.

Conducción bajo los efectos del alcohol

Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol continues to be a problem on the road. In Florida, there were 17,748 alcohol-related crashes in 2010. So yes, impaired driving tops the list of accident-causing behaviors in Florida or any state.

Exceso de velocidad

Speeding continues to be the number one cited driver-related factor in highway fatal crashes. Speed limits are in place for the safety of people who are on or about our roadways. That’s because the faster you go, the higher the chances are that you’ll get into a serious accident. Just slow down!

Conducción distraída

Distracted driving can be an activity that takes your concentration off the road like texting and eating. Activities that take your hands off the wheel and eyes off the road put you at risk of an accident. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, states that “in 2011 3,331 people died in distraction-affected accidents.”

Aggressive Driving

Most people consider themselves good drivers, but stress can turn even the most courteous driver into an aggressive one. Aggressive driving contributes to 5 million car accidents each year. Most people don’t even realize these driving habits are aggressive: rolling stops, speeding through yellow lights, not yielding the right of way, preventing a merge, honking the horn, failing to signal, tailgating, or weaving through traffic. Being mindful of these behaviors will make your daily travels safer.

Using Your Phone

While most states have made talking and texting on your cell phone illegal, using hands-free is still allowed. However, this can still be distracting. When you are distracted while driving you to put yourself and others at risk. It’s safer to put your phone away until you reach your destination.

Failure to Yield Right of Way

Every-day drivers forget to follow this very simple rule. Waiting to turn left against oncoming traffic, yielding to the driver on your right at a 4-way stop, allowing pedestrians to cross safely could prevent many unnecessary accidents.

Lastly, it’s always important to obey traffic signs, pay attention to your surroundings, and exercise caution on the road. For more preventative techniques try brushing up on your knowledge and skills with a Florida traffic school course.
