Common Causes of Car Accidents in Atlanta
The majority of car accidents can be avoided. Automobile accidents can occur due to:
- Aggressive Driving
- Road Rage
- fatigue or falling sleep behind the wheel
- substance abuse
- DUI or drunk driving.
Road rage is a serious issue on our roads. The term is used to refer to violent behavior by a driver, which can cause accidents and incidents on roadways. Some people call it an extreme case of aggressive driving, but in some jurisdictions there may be a legal difference between the two charges.
Road rage is caused primarily, but not exclusively, by overcrowding on inadequate road systems that were not designed for modern levels of traffic, thus forcing a driver to set his speed not to his own expectation, but rather that of the prevailing traffic around him. " Road ragers" can cause serious injuries and deadly accidents.
