New Jersey Auto Accidents
A common type of traffic accident in New Jersey is currently hitting a fixed object, more specifically, hedges or trees. This is also the cause of most deaths related to car accidents. The second most common types were utility poles, followed by guard rail/parked vehicle collisions. Nationally, approximately 90% of all auto accidents involved some type of driver error/negligence as a contributing factor.
Driver error may include driver inexperience, distraction, fatigue, or intoxication. Speeding and distracted drivers were common contributors to wrecks throughout the state of New York in 2019. Speeding was the highest contributor to fatalities.
