Factors That Increase Traffic Crashes


June 29, 2020

USA- Studies have identified many risk factors that lead to a greater chance of a traffic accident, according to WHO.INT. Demographics, including age and gender, are predictors of a person’s risk of being harmed in a traffic incident. 

It may seem obvious, but drivers who speed, are under the influence of alcohol or drugs, or who are fatigued are all more at risk of being involved in a wreck. Young men have a greater chance of being involved in a traffic accident than most other demographics. Teens traveling in a car together raise the likelihood of a mishap, and walking in urban areas carries significant risks to pedestrians. 

Darkness is a factor in many collisions as it impairs visibility. Similarly, poor eyesight raises the chances of a collision, as do environmental factors that impair people’s view of the road. Vehicle flaws or defects will create dangers for drivers and others. People who fail to use seatbelts or restraints, or other safety equipment, such as a motorcycle helmet when riding on two-wheels, are at an increased danger of being injured or killed in traffic incidents. Roadside objects that are not blocked off present risks to drivers and vehicle occupants. 

It is well documented that most accidents can be prevented with a little extra care and safety education.  Since 1984, Montlick & Associates has been dedicated to keeping children and families safe on the roadway.  Our commitment runs deep through our extensive, award-winning public service programs that provide people the information they need to avoid injuries.  To learn about our Don't Drink and Drive Campaign, Child Passenger Safety Programs, Booster Seat Campaign and much more, visit montlick.com and click on “community service,” or simply click here.
