Car Accidents in Missouri
Car accidents take place every day in the state of Missouri. There are many accidents that are caused by drivers who engage in acts of negligence.
One of the most common causes of car accidents is distracted driving. With more and more drivers using cell phones while behind the wheel, it’s no wonder that distracted driving is becoming such a problem. Drivers who are texting or talking on the phone are not paying attention to the road, and this can lead to serious accidents.
Another common cause of car accidents is drunk driving. Drunk drivers are a danger to themselves and to others on the road, and far too many people drive after drinking too much alcohol. If you’re going to drink, make sure you have a designated driver or take a cab home so you don’t put yourself or others at risk.
Speeding is also a major cause of car accidents. People often think they can get where they’re going faster if they speed, but this is simply not true. Speeding increases your chances of being in an accident, and it also makes any accident that does occur much more likely to be serious or even fatal.
Finally, weather conditions can also contribute to car accidents. If it’s raining or snowing outside, make sure you slow down and take extra care while driving. These conditions can make it harder to see and make it easier to lose control of your vehicle.
