Highway Accidents in Laguna Pueblo
The frequency of automobile accidents has steadily risen over the past several years. This shouldn’t come as any great shock when you work in the higher percentages of distracted driving incidents that seem to get worse with every technological advancement. There is also a greater number of drivers on the roads today than ever before. Sideswipe collisions make up the highest percentage of vehicle collisions. The blame for that lies in unequal measure between intricate and complicated street layouts as well as raging driver inattention. Sideswipe collisions occur most often in the outer lanes of highways and can take place at any time.
By their very nature, this kind of accident can be difficult both to predict and prevent. They are especially dangerous due to the fact that both drivers are typically moving at very fast speeds when these accidents happen.
