How fast could a car accident happen?

On Behalf of | Feb 19, 2021 | Motor Vehicle Accidents |

Car accidents could happen anywhere. Some may worry about long-distance trips that involve traveling into unfamiliar areas. True, lack of familiarity might contribute to distractions. That said, the recent study from a technological firm suggests that a significant number of accidents happen within the first three minutes of starting a vehicle. These types of accidents in Florida could lead to catastrophic outcomes.

Problems may occur at the outset

Dolphin Technologies performed a study involving a huge sample. The results suggest that 25% of accidents may happen within the first three minutes of driving. The info isn’t too shocking.

Once a car goes in motion, there comes a chance for a collision. Some drivers might not pay much attention to traffic rules at any point in their driving. A person living in a residential area might not worry much about traffic cops. Therefore, they might not come to complete stops at stop signs or drive at a safe speed.

Someone could pull out too fast from a driveway without looking and hit another car or even a pedestrian. Eventually, drivers with bad habits may find the law of averages catches up with him or her.

Familiar travels and troubles

People who spend most of their time traveling from familiar areas, such as work, home, and local stores, might stop paying attention when driving. Familiarity may cause some to become too casual about safety.

Distracted driving might affect someone no matter when or where the car started. People who insist on carrying on phone conversations or texting immediately after turning the ignition start a trip potentially distracted. Unfortunately, you can expect even more distractions as more technology finds its way into cars.

Motor vehicle accidents could happen minutes after a driver pulls out of a parking spot. If you are injured in an accident, you may want to reach out to an attorney for representation.
