Rear End Collision
If one car collides with another from behind, it is one of the most common forms of car accidents. This is often referred to as being rear-ended or rear-ending anyone. Distracted driving is a common cause of this form of accident.
Distracted driving involves using a mobile phone while driving, eating while driving, and changing the radio channel. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, distracted driving causes about 87 percent of rear-end accidents. With the widespread practice of texting while driving, these cases have been on the rise. Poor driving conditions, such as wet or snowy roads, may also lead to rear-end collisions.
Following these guidelines will help you prevent rear-end collisions:
- Do not drive when inattentive.
It just takes a split second to lose focus and collide with a car in front of you.
- Maintain steady, healthy speeds.It’s a recipe for disaster if you drive too quickly and don’t keep a safe stopping distance from the vehicle in front of you.
- Avoid slamming on the brakes unexpectedly.If you come to a sudden stop and the car in front of you is not driving safely, they will hit you from behind.
- Keep an eye on your environment and surroundings.When the road conditions or visibility are low, this is particularly necessary.
Maintain continuous vigilance behind the wheel to protect yourself and other drivers.
