Hawaii Vehicle Accidents
Hawaii sees tens of thousands of auto collisions every year. Of these accidents, tens of thousands of people end up with injuries and hundreds lose their lives. Sadly, most of these collisions are preventable and caused by the actions of reckless, careless, and negligent drivers. Driver negligence has become the main reason auto collisions occur throughout the nation. In Hawaii, the most common reason auto collisions happen is impaired driving, closely followed by speeding.
Across the United States, impaired driving is behind over 30% of the national accident fatality rate. Additionally, speeding takes the lives of more than 11,000 people every year. These forms of negligent driving are extremely dangerous and deadly. Other forms of negligent driving that contribute to injuries and fatalities in the United States on a regular basis include distraction and fatigue. Over 400,000 vehicle accidents are caused by distracted drivers every year. Fatigued driving is behind approximately 100,000 vehicle collisions every single year. These statistics show that negligent driving has become a serious and dangerous issue in the US.
