New Jersey Car Wrecks

 Car crashes have become a serious issue in the United States. Each year, over 3 million people suffer injuries in auto accidents throughout the country. Sadly, about 40,000 people lose their lives in car wrecks in the US yearly. These accidents happen for several reasons, including bad weather, road construction, vehicle malfunctions, and driver negligence. However, in the past decade, driver negligence has risen to the top of the list of reasons why auto collisions take place across the nation. 

Driver negligence has become a serious and even deadly problem in the United States in the past decade. Drivers who choose to operate their vehicles while distracted, intoxicated, fatigued, or at unsafe speeds risk their own lives and the lives of those whom they encounter on the roadway. It is extremely important for drivers to remain aware, awake, alert, and mindful while behind the wheel. Those who fail to do so often cause accidents that end in injuries or even fatalities. 

Every year, over 90% of reported car crashes in the United States are caused by the actions of negligent drivers, according to information provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
