Looking at other distractions that cause crashes

Many drivers realize that car accidents can take place when someone is under the influence of alcohol, fails to stop at a sign, goes over the speed limit, or becomes distracted because they are using their cell phone. However, many drivers do not realize that there are all sorts of other distractions that can cause a car accident. For example, if a spider lands on a driver who has a fear of spiders, they may lose control of their vehicle. Moreover, there are other unique distractions that can play a role in an accident.

To some people, the thought of a driver veering off the road due to a spider might seem humorous. However, this matter must be taken seriously, since this distraction could lead to the loss of life or devastating injuries. For some people, a spider or another type of bug that scares them could cause them to become so alarmed that they stop looking at the road or veer into oncoming traffic when they first notice the bug. If you are scared of spiders or are worried that a similar incident could happen to you, it is important to do your best to remain calm and avoid any dangerous actions while behind the wheel.

Aside from bugs that drivers find scary, other uncommon distractions can cause a crash. For example, a driver's attention may be diverted from the road because they are extremely angry. Over on our car accidents page, you will find more on motor vehicle wrecks.
