Single-vehicle crashes are the cause out of about 20 percent of all traffic fatalities. Almost all of these crashes are entirely avoidable. There are times where heavy rain, snow, or icy roads make driving more dangerous and crashes more likely, but most accidents have less to do with weather and more to do with drivers.
Hazardous behaviors including driving while under the influence of alcohol,texting and driving and speeding are all common causes of single-vehicle crashes. Alcohol is more often a factor in crashes involving one vehicle than it is in collisions between multiple vehicles, and nearly all accidents where one car drives off the road involve a driver who was speeding.
