What are the common causes of car accidents?
An everyday car accident can have numerous common causes. The accident may happen because there is bumper to bumper traffic or speedy highway driving. However, many car accidents happen on parking lots and side streets. A vehicle may crash into other autos or stationery objects. In certain circumstances, a car accident may injure pedestrians.

Common Causes of Auto Accidents
Many accidents are avoidable. A car accident in Marietta can happen because of:
- Road Rage
- Driving under the Influence (DUI)
- Aggressive Driving
- Substance Abuse
- Falling asleep at the wheel or tiredness
- Reckless Driving
- Negligent Driving
- Cell Phone Use
The attorneys at the law offices of Matthew C. Hines know that aggressive behavior by a driver (commonly known as road rage) has the potential to cause a serious car accident. Whilst driving aggressively and road rage appear the same, the two charges are legally different.
Road Rage Aggression is a Criminal Act
A “road rager” can cause a serious accident that could potentially lead to a fatality. In the first instance road rage often occurs on inadequate and overcrowded road systems that are unable to cope with high-levels of traffic. Thus, drivers may speed to keep-up with the surrounding traffic rather than travel at an acceptable speed.
