With about 27,000 vehicle accidents occurring every day in the United States, there are many factors that contribute to them. Commonly, accidents are caused by drivers operating their vehicles while distracted or by drivers not following traffic laws. As simple as it is to stop at a stop sign or follow the speed limit, drivers often ignore these laws, which puts them at high risk for causing an accident. Speeding is a factor in one out of every three fatal vehicle accidents, while around 70,000 vehicle accidents are caused every year in the United States due to drivers failing to stop at stop signs.
