The most common types of accidents on the roads

According to statistics, the incidence of certain types of accidents varies somewhat from year to year, but the overall trend is continuing.
Pedestrian accidents – nearly half of all accidents (48-49,5%).


Vehicle collisions – more than one-third (approximately 35-36%).
Assaults on the obstacles – 5%.
Overturning transport – 4.7%.
Interestingly, in an accident often get no strangers, just left the driving school, while experienced drivers with driving experience 3 years or more.
Causes
Occurrence of accidents on the road due to driver inattention to experts, which in turn can cause fatigue.
Indeed, if we compare the incidence of urban crashes in the morning and evening rush hours, it appears that the number of accidents after work closer to 19 hours almost doubles. The same conclusion can be arrived at by analyzing statistics on the day of the week: the number of accidents increases the output by 3 times, and by the share of accidents leading Friday.
Separately, it should be said about driving at night from midnight to 7 am: congestion is orders of magnitude smaller, but the number of accidents on the total number of cars seriously increases. It is also connected not so much with the lack of light (in the winter, for example, at 5 pm, it is the same), but with a tired driver.
It is worth mentioning this vital subject as drunk driving. The number of road accidents involving drunk drivers in Russia is decreasing (in the past year – 2%), but a deeper study of this question, it turns out that a quarter of the formal sober car owners who use alcohol before the accident.
Our advice:
Be more concentration when driving in a dangerous time periods: in the evening and at night, at the end of the week.
If possible, do not drive sleepy, tired. It should be remembered that not only alcohol and psychotropic drugs decrease the rate of reaction and distracting, but seemingly harmless drugs – for example, anti-allergy, pain, and even many cold remedies.
Stick to the speed limit to 70 km / h higher speed affects the handling of the vehicle, and the severity of accidents is doubled.
When driving in the city refrain from conversations with passengers. If you will be a long trip on the highway, on the contrary – try not to travel alone. Of course, accidents on highways less common, but have significantly large number of victims.
Light the lights. To many it seems silly to include the light day. However, the statistics do not be fooled – the dipped headlights during the day reduces the number of accidents with collisions by 18%.
