Understanding Driver Error
Auto accidents occur far too easily, and unfortunately, driver error causes them to occur even more frequently. Driver error is considered to be any mistake made by the operator of a vehicle, and is one of the leading causes of car accidents in Ontario. Driver error is usually avoidable, and there are many laws put in place in order to further prevent it. Despite the legal measures to reduce instances of driver error, the Law Firm at TavetnitinVashishth LLP understand that many drivers continue to engage in negligent behavior that often leads to preventable accidents.
Common Examples of Driver Error
Everyone on the road has a duty not to endanger other drivers through negligent behavior. However, some drivers do not uphold this duty and choose to engage in activities that can easily result in an auto accident. Common examples of driver error include:
•Aggressive or reckless driving (tailgating, road rage, running lights or stop signs)
•Failure to properly use brakes or turn signals
•Texting or using a cell phone while driving
•Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
Distracted driving is also an extremely common driver error. However, many drivers do not realize that some of their most common behaviors behind the wheel actually distract their focus from the road. Even seemingly harmless actions, like talking to a passenger in your car or eating / drinking while driving, can distract a driver long enough to cause a devastating accident.
