California Car Wrecks

Car accidents in California are most often caused by driver error. Other things, like vehicle malfunctions, bad weather, and driving after dark can increase your chances of becoming involved in an accident. Driving after dark can be dangerous due to a higher number of drunk drivers on the road. Driving after dark can also be risky due to reduced visibility. Accidents increase about 20% when visibility is poor. The most prevalent cause of car wrecks, however, continues to be driver negligence; in California and throughout the United States. Across the US, driver distraction is the largest contributor to auto accidents, causing 9 out of 10 car crashes.
