Most people assume that single-vehicle car accidents are caused by the reckless actions of the driver. However, all accidents can be caused by several factors not only reckless driving. Narrow lanes, inadequate shoulders, and difficult curves are all examples of how roadways can be dangerous. Along with dangerous roadways and reckless driving, vehicle design flaws and mechanical defects are also causes of auto accidents that occur more frequently than many are aware.
