Did you know that auto accidents are occurring at a higher and higher rate each year. As many as six million auto accidents occur each year in the United States, leaving 2.9 million people injured and more than 42,000 persons wrongfully killed. Many of these people were innocent drivers who were killed or injured due to the negligence or recklessness of other drivers on roads and highways.

In recent years, other factors have made some drivers even more reckless or negligent. Among them are cell phones. Thousands of Americans are injured annually because other drivers are too busy dialing, talking or texting on their cell phone to pay proper attention to the road.

Defective parts such as defective tires or tire valves also can play a big part in an auto accident. Earlier in this decade, defective Firestone tires on Ford Explorers claimed hundreds of lives. These tires had a design defect which led to tread-belt separations, an especially dangerous defect which can cause blowouts leading to deadly rollover accidents.

Another all too common cause of auto accidents is drunk drivers.

Did you know that drunk drivers cause almost a third of all traffic fatalities in the U.S.

Drunk driving accidents can be very difficult for even an alert defensive driver to avoid, because they often involve sudden erratic behavior, such as a drunk driver veering into another lane and hitting another car head-on. Drivers who fall asleep at the wheel also can cause such devastating auto accidents.

Those who speed and otherwise drive recklessly also cause many car accidents in America, and all for the sake of arriving at a destination a single minute earlier, or perhaps racing another vehicle, with street racing on the increase. Often such speeders may be the drivers of 18-wheeler vehicles, or semi trucks. These large trucks are involved in about 750 traffic fatalities each year.

Thousands of deaths and millions of injuries are far too much of a price to pay for such negligence.
