New York Auto Collisions
Every year in the state of New York, hundreds of thousands of car accidents take place. On average, there are over 300,000 vehicle crashes reported yearly in the Empire State. Tens of thousands of individuals are hurt in these collisions, and thousands more end up losing their lives. Driver negligence is the main culprit in causing the majority of auto collisions reported in the United States.
Over the past ten years, driver negligence has become the main reason auto collisions happen across the nation. Driver fatigue, distraction, intoxication, and speeding are the four most commonly seen types of negligence that happen in the US. Those who allow themselves to travel while distracted, at speeds over the speed limit, overtired, high, or drunk risk their own lives and the lives of everyone they encounter. Sadly, millions sustain serious injuries, and thousands are killed yearly due to the actions of negligent drivers.
