Factors that Cause Drivers to Lose Control of their CarsBy Pyle Law, July 27 2020 1:42 pm
When a driver loses control of his or her vehicle, that driver endangers everyone with whom he or she shares the road. While drivers obviously don’t generally intend to lose control of their vehicles, there are several forms of negligence that commonly contribute to this exceedingly dangerous outcome. If you’ve been injured by a driver who lost control of his or her car, it’s time to consult with an experienced Kansas car accident attorney.
Speed plays a pivotal role in motorists’ ability to handle their vehicles safely. In fact, the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration (NHTSA) shares the following grim facts related to speeding:
Motorists are responsible for driving safely, which includes eschewing dangerous distractions while behind the wheel. Distracted drivers are much less aware of the traffic all around them, which leaves them that much more likely to lose control of their vehicles. The most dangerous distraction, and one that is becoming more and more prevalent, is interaction with one’s smartphone.
Our vehicles’ tires represent our point of connection with the road, and as such, they are critical to driving safely. When a motorist fails to keep the tires on his or her vehicle in safe, working condition, that driver increases the risk of losing control of the vehicle. Tire blowouts are another serious concern, and they are often associated with faulty manufacturing.
Having well-maintained brakes that are functioning safely is another critical element of safe driving and of maintaining control of one’s car. Traffic is unpredictable and braking suddenly is often imperative. If a vehicle’s brakes are subpar – whether poorly maintained or faultily manufactured – it greatly increases the chances that the driver will lose control of the vehicle when an emergency driving situation arises.
Every car accident is dangerous, but when the at-fault driver loses control of his or her car, the situation is that much more dangerous – and terrifying.
