Car Accidents in Arizona
Car accidents happen for a lot of reasons. External circumstances, like inclement weather, can cause roadway conditions to become dangerous, causing a driver to lose control of their vehicle. In most cases, a traffic accident is down to the reckless or negligent actions of another driver.
Taking into account modern technological advances like GPS and cell phones, there are more distractions on the roadway that have drivers paying less attention. These distractions, mixed with negligence and human error, have increased Arizona’s overall number of car accidents as well as the number of injuries they cause.
Distracted driving and other types of reckless behavior also cause drivers to disregard essential driving rules and regulations, resulting in cars that run red lights, speed and even strike other vehicles or pedestrians.
