New Jersey Auto Collisions
Each year, millions of traffic accidents occur across the United States. Recently, more than 6 million collisions were reported over the course of one year. Of those wrecks, around 3 million individuals were hurt badly enough to send them to the hospital. Regrettably, over 40,000 people lose their lives annually in severe wrecks. These numbers become even more alarming when we consider the fact that negligent driving is the main cause of the majority of these incidents.
Information provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration shows that over 93% of reported traffic collisions happen due to the actions of negligent drivers. Negligent driving is extremely dangerous, injuring millions of people per year and taking the lives of tens of thousands of people annually. Distraction, fatigue, speeding, and intoxication are the four most common types of driver negligence in the US today. Driver negligence is the most common, causing more than 400,000 car crashes per year and ending the lives of around 3,000 people.
Distracted driving has clearly become more common due to the ever-rising use of smartphones among the American people. Those who operate their vehicles while using their cell phones usually place themselves at risk while risking the lives of everyone else on the road around them.
