New York Car Crashes
Car wrecks take place in the state of New York all the time. Averagely speaking, the city of New York sees more than 600 collisions each day that injure hundreds of people and even take the lives of some of those who become involved in them. Throughout the country, over 7,500 people suffer injuries in collisions each day, while more than 100 end up losing their lives. Auto collisions are the main reason American people sustain injuries and end up prematurely losing their lives, with the majority of accidents caused by driver negligence.
Specifically, distracted driving is the main culprit in the causation of the majority of American auto collisions. In fact, more than 400,000 traffic accidents are caused by the actions of distracted drivers. Unfortunately, drivers have so many reasons to become distracted these days – from their cell phones to the screens built into their vehicles. Though some drivers may feel that it is okay to look anywhere other than at the roadway in front of them, this is never the case and can end up deadly for everyone involved. While we are traveling on the open road, we are almost constantly in motion, leaving the opportunity for error wide open, which is why we need to pay constant attention and stay vigilant, awake, alert, sober, and aware at all times.
