A motor vehicle accident or traffic collision occurs when a vehicle collides with another car, pedestrian, road debris, or other stationary obstruction like a tree, pole, building, fence, signpost, or mailbox. Accidents often result in injury, disability, death, property damage, or financial costs to the society or individuals involved.
Several factors contribute to the risk of collisions, and they include vehicle design, speed of operation, road design, road environment, and driving skills. Others are impairment due to drugs or alcohol, street racing, and distracted driving caused by acts of eating, texting, or calling.
Traffic collisions are preventable if drivers obey traffic lights and stop signs, use turn signs and exit, avoid running red lights, or trying to make the yellow light. Maintain the vehicle regularly, keep at least four seconds space between cars, drive within the speed limit and with the headlight on when driving at night, and observe before driving through intersections.
