According to the Department of Transportation, rear-end collisions are one of the most common occurring types of accidents. The latest report by The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) found that close to 30% of all the crashes in 2000 in the United States were rear-end collisions. NHTSA also found that most rear-end car crashes happen at speeds up to 30 km/h, with the majority of them being in city traffic.
Rear-end collisions happening at lower speeds are due to driver distraction. A study discussed by the NHTSA found that 93% of rear-end collisions had to do with driver inattention. If you have ever heard about driver distraction and/or driver inattention, then you are most likely familiar with the most dangerous type, which is texting and driving. Although texting and driving is by far the worst type of distracted driving, there are many other types. Distracted driving can be anything from putting on make-up to eating a sandwich. Basically anything that requires your attention, eyes, or hands off the wheel is a form of distraction.
In order to try to avoid being involved in a rear-end collision, it’s best to practice safe driving habits. A good starting point is to avoid texting, answering phone calls, or anything else that involves using your cell phone. In addition, if you listen to music in the car, try to avoid adjusting or changing the music while driving. Instead, get in the habit of waiting until you are at a red light to change the station.
