Swerving into opposing lanes of traffic is a common cause of vehicle accidents. This often occurs when a driver is either distracted or under the influence, which are two of the top three factors involved in vehicle accidents. To practice safe driving, pay attention to the road and drive according to traffic safety laws and regulations.
