Causes of Sacramento Car Accidents
A car accident may be caused by various different actions or conduct on the part of a motorist. This is the most common cause of Sacramento car accidents, including such conduct as:
- Talking on the phone
- Texting while driving
- Eating or drinking
- Driving drunk
- Improper passing
- Running a red light/stop sign
- Reckless driving
- Adjusting the radio
- Talking to a passenger
- Applying makeup
- Driving while tired
- Inexperienced driver
However, there are also other potential causes of car accidents that may not be related to the driver's conduct in any way. Extreme weather conditions such as heavy fog, rain, wind or hail may cause a driver to lose control. Poor road design or improper maintenance of roads, traffic signs and traffic signals may also cause an accident, as may a defective or faulty auto part. Any of these situations, when combined with driver negligence, make a car accident that much more likely.
