Vehicle accidents occur every minute of every day all around the world. While road accidents are common, the factors that cause them are very much preventable. For example, one of the main factors that cause accidents is impairment of the driver of the vehicle. This can easily be prevented by drivers choosing not to carry out reckless action such as texting while driving or driving while intoxicated. Driving on highways can be dangerous due the amount of vehicles on the highway and the high speeds involved. It is important that drivers always use their signals while switching lanes on highways in order to avoid collision with other vehicles.
