Preventing Arizona Tailgating Freeway Car Accidents
No drivers out on the road want to be tailgated by other drivers, but that doesn’t stop all of us from tailgating from time to time, and it doesn’t stop drivers from causing Arizona tailgating freeway car accidents by driving too fast, following other motorists too close and not paying attention to the road. You know that being in a hurry or being distracted makes you vulnerable to collisions, but when you are out on the road and the other drivers around you are driving slow and getting in your way, logic disappears, and the need to teach them a lesson becomes much more important. Unfortunately, teaching the driver in front of you a lesson, or being taught a lesson by the driver behind you, doesn’t always go as planned.
Can You Sustain Injuries in an Arizona Tailgating Freeway Car Accident?
You may not realize it, but some of the worst injuries you can suffer from a car crash can happen in an Arizona tailgating freeway car accident. These accidents often involve significant impact to the rear bumper of the vehicle, and that means your body being thrown forward. It might also mean your own vehicle hitting the vehicle in front of you, causing impact to you from both ends of the car. Just like with any other type of car crash, you can sustain broken bones, contusions, head trauma and traumatic brain injuries (TBI), spine injuries, neck and back injuries and more. Whiplash is also a common outcome injury for those involved in tailgating accidents. And internal injuries, or other critical injuries, are not far behind.
If You Can Read This You’re Following Too Close…
According to the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) nearly 5,100 collisions happen on the roads in this state each year because one driver was following another too closely to read the bumper sticker that says, “If you can read this you’re following too close.” And of those accident, nearly 1,400 resulted in injuries to the people involved. Rear end collisions remain the most common type of collision on the roads of Arizona year after year, and although the numbers dwindle, along with following too closely, rear end collisions account for around 40,600 accidents in the state annually. That’s nearly 46 percent of all crashes!
