Human Factors in Car Accidents

Car accidents happen everyday all around the world in different conditions and due to a variety of factors. Some may be environmental factors while others may be due to human or vehicular factors.

Many human factors in collisions that cause personal injury can be avoided if the proper prevention is taken and they can be eliminated all together in the majority of cases to stay safe on the road.

Even the most experienced drivers can make human errors on the road which makes it important to always remind yourself of the human factors that can cause collisions.

Human factors in car accidents can include:

  • Distractions
  • Following Too Closely
  • Alcohol
  • Drugs
  • Cell Phones
  • Failing to Stop
  • Sick
  • Speed
  • Tired / Falling Asleep
  • Medications

Ensure you take into consideration the variety of factors that can cause accidents and minimize the human driving error factors. Also, paying attention and ensuring you keep your eyes on the road is critical.
