Lane changes lead to a large number of crashes, and the crashes resulting from lane changes are often serious and lead to fatalities or severe injuries. One reason why reason lane chances cause so many vehicle collisions is that theyoccur frequently. Most drivers change lanes multiple times every day. Another factor that makes lane changes dangerous is blind spots. Drivers often start to change lanes without seeing another vehicle behind them.
In order to avoid these collisions, drivers are always advised to signal, “lean and look” when changing (do not just rely on mirrors), Adjust mirrors before driving and make sure they are clean, not to follow other vehicles too closely. Many lane change accidents occur when a driver tries to switch lanes rapidly to avoid a collision with a vehicle that slows down in front of them.
