While safety features in cars have improved, the annual rate of car accidents in America continues to rise.
Some of the major factors in car accidents include:
- The time of year and the weather during that month.
- The motor vehicle statistics within your state of residence.
- Distracted driving and impaired driving.
- The time of day and day of the week.
As a driver, it’s unreasonable to think that you could possibly control all of those variables. When you drive a car, accidents happen. Often, they are beyond your control, especially when they involve other vehicles.
However, there are many things that you can control as a responsible driver. It is up to you to have the best protection in the event of an accident. If you have good automobile coverage, those unexpected and unfortunate accidents will be a little easier to deal with, financially and emotionally.
