Crazy Car Facts You Never Knew

You might think that you know everything there is to understand about driving and the rules of the road. However, we bet even the most skilled driver is missing some important knowledge. Or, at the very least, you are going to be interested to know these facts that tend to escape most people. Let’s look at some of the craziest facts that people tend to forget about driving.

Crazy Car

Most Accidents Are Caused By…

We bet you have some of your own theories about this one. Judging by the media, you probably think that most accidents are caused by speeding or drink driving. Perhaps, you are under the impression that falling asleep at the wheel is the main cause. Interestingly, none of these are true. The real culprit behind the most accidents is distractions. Did you ever wonder why you can smoke while driving but you can’t answer a phone call? In both circumstances, you will be holding something in one of your other hands. Therefore, it can’t be because you’re always supposed to have two hands on the wheel. It’s not the task of holding the phone that’s dangerous. It’s more to do with holding a conversation that you have to listen to intently. That’s why they recommend you pull over if you need to take a call. Although, it’s true that most states have not yet fully banned being on the phone while driving.

Bump Into The Back And It Is…

Your fault, yes that’s right. If you crash into the back of someone, you are going to have a hard time arguing it was their fault. This is true even if they pull out on you or perform an emergency stop. The argument will be given that you should have been paying more attention. You should also have been keeping a reasonable distance away from the car in front. A personal injury attorney may be able to help you with a claim. Though typically, it’s likely that the driver in front will get more damages. Particularly if they suffer whiplash due to the jolt when you crashed into them.

A lot Of Speed Cameras Are…

Not real. An estimated twenty-five percent of speed cameras are not operational. Why is this? Well, speed cameras are quite expensive and the process of picking people up even more so. As well as this, there is no way to tell which is real and which is fake. Therefore the deterrent still continues to work. People won’t speed for fear of getting caught. Although, it is worth pointing out that speed cameras are not really to stop speeding. It sounds crazy, but logically, it makes sense. Speed cameras are not usually hidden, and there are often warnings. Therefore, speed cameras are being used to check drivers are paying attention to the road.

Did you know these facts about driving? Or, were they a complete mystery to you. Remember, the road can be fun, but it can also be a dangerous place. Always drive with care and attention.
