Mississippi Car Crashes
Car accidents happen in Mississippi more often than in many other states. Hundreds of thousands of auto accidents happen per year in the Magnolia State. Though these wrecks only take seconds to occur, they can change the lives of those involved forever. The most prevalent reason auto accidents happen in the state of Mississippi is speeding. Speeding is a hazardous and reckless form of driver negligence that ends the lives of over 10,000 people per year in the United States.
Drivers who choose to put their attention everywhere else except for on the road in front of them cause serious injuries and even fatalities. It is an alarming fact that the leading cause of millions of car accidents every year in the United States is driver negligence. Auto wrecks are among the top ten most common reasons for serious injuries and death in the United States. The National Highway Traffic Safety Association reports that roughly 95% of car wrecks are the result of driver negligence in the US.
Regardless of the safety regulations implemented to keep people safe on the road, drivers continue to act negligently and put themselves and others at serious risk. Some leading types of driver negligence include:
- Intoxicate driving
- Distracted driving
- Fatigued driving
Distracted driving takes approximately 3,000 lives per year in the United States. Approximately 31% of all auto accident fatalities are the result of speeding, and approximately 32 people lose their lives every day due to intoxicated drivers in America. These statistics reiterate the fact that driver negligence is a serious problem in the United States.
