Busy roads may mean more auto accidents during the holidays

The holiday season has arrived, which means Arizona drivers will be sharing the roads with more people than at other times of the year. When the roads are busier, it naturally increases the chances for auto accidents, and a bad driver, increases those chances even more. Drivers may benefit by focusing on how to share the roads safely with others during the holiday season.

Most bad drivers are reluctant to admit they have bad driving habits. Despite the fact that people are often completely unaware of the dangerous behaviors they exhibit behind the wheel, the truth is that approximately one million people die in traffic accidents every year. Bad behavior behind the wheel can have deadly consequences. 

One of the marks of a bad driver is failing to give the road complete attention. Distracted driving is a serious safety problem, and it is now one of the leading causes of collisions. A good driver keeps his or her hands on the wheel, does not activate his or her cellphone and waits until the vehicle is parked to respond to or read texts. Safe drivers remain vigilant at all times and make the effort to drive defensively in order to prevent involvement in a crash.

Auto accidents caused by the negligent or reckless actions of other drivers can result in the pain and suffering of innocent people. After an accident, a victim may want to pursue justice through the Arizona civil claims process. This course of action may allow a person to recoup his or her losses associated with a car crash, including medical bills, lost income and property damage.
