There are many causes of motor vehicle accidents in Australia. Below outlines some of the most common causes:
Drink driving happens when someone is in driver’s seat of a motor vehicle and drives or attempts to drive whilst under the influence of alcohol. This is the cause of many accidents on our roads each year.
Driver fatigue is one of the three top killers on Victorian roads. Being exhausted at the wheel can be deadly and it’s important to know when you need to stop, revive and survive.
Being distracted whilst driving can have devastative affects. Whether you're texting on your mobile phone, changing the radio station or even being distracted by your passengers, this can easily result in you running off the road, having a head on collision or side-swiping another car by moving into their lane.
Hooning and Speeding
Dangerous driving such as speeding or hooning is the cause of many motor vehicle accidents each year. Accidents are caused by the drivers losing control of their vehicle at high speed or whilst recklessly driving.
