Common Causes of Fender Bender Accidents

Fender bender crashes typically happen when one vehicle collides into the backside of a second vehicle. Yet these accidents occur for a number of reasons. Here are a few of the most common:

Driving while distracted
Distracted driving is frequently caused by cell phone use, adjusting the radio, or using a GPS system. Driving is a complex activity which requires the full attention of the driver. Any distraction can prove deadly.

Excessive speeding
The faster a vehicle moves, the less time the driver has to react to another vehicle changing lanes, pulling out in front of them, or suddenly hitting its brakes. Drivers often may not leave enough space between their vehicle and those in front of them.

Aggressive driving
Most everyone has seen another vehicle being driven aggressively. Such driving often involves tailgating, weaving in and out of traffic, cutting other drivers off, or pumping the brakes repeatedly to punish a vehicle following behind. Each of these dangerous behaviors can lead to fender benders resulting in moderate to significant injuries.

Driving while tired
Fatigued driving is when a driver is too exhausted to properly operate a vehicle. Driving while tired can greatly reduce a motorist’s observation and response time. It is always better to pull over for a quick nap than it is to push on if you are tired.

Drunk or impaired driving
Similar to distracted driving, a driver who is drunk or impaired is unable to properly operate a vehicle in a safe manner. With so many alternate forms of transportation available, such as rideshare vehicles or public transportation, driving while inebriated should never be an option.
