Car accidents are frightening experiences for those involved and for those around to witness it. Some miraculously leave with little to no injuries, but unfortunately, not all leave with their lives. A list of the causes of accidents was created and human error tops the list, which is mostly the fault of the drivers. Following are other causes, like external road factors such as humps, oil spill, manhole, scattered sand, wet road, and even due to passengers like a mentally-ill co-passenger. The last one in the list are vehicle defects, which can range from electrical to mechanical faults such as a detached wheel, faulty brakes, sudden unintended acceleration, and broken tires. So how can you avoid these accidents?
