Hawaii Car Crashes
Auto collisions are a serious issue in the United States and throughout the state of Hawaii. Every single day, over 17,000 car crashes are reported per year in the United States. These accidents cause over 7,000 people to sustain injuries. Every year, more than 6 million car wrecks are reported throughout the country, the majority of which are caused by driver negligence.
Driver negligence can be displayed in countless ways, however, the most common are speeding, intoxication, distraction, and fatigue. Drivers who pay attention to their phones, the radio, other people in their cars, and anything other than the roadway while operating their motor vehicles put themselves and everyone else at risk for serious injuries or even fatalities.
For example, in one recent year, over 11,000 people were killed due to auto accidents caused by speeding. Speeding is one of the most dangerous types of driver negligence because it leaves drivers no time to stop in case of an accident, and increases the dangers and risk of catastrophic injuries in the case of a crash.
