Common Types Of Plant City Car Accidents

Sadly, Plant City car accidents can happen in a variety of different ways. Often, it is due to the negligence of another. Negligence occurs when someone fails to uphold their duty to another. It is because of that failure, they may have caused damage to that individual. Car accident negligence can happen when a driver fails to operate their vehicle as a reasonable person in similar circumstances would have. And it is because of that failure, the negligent driver injures another and/or causes damage to another’s vehicle. 5 common Plant City car accident types include:

Rear-End Accidents

Rear-end accidents typically occur because a driver is following too close to another and there is not enough space between the vehicles to stop. It is important that a safe distance is left between yourself and other vehicles. This is especially important in Plant City when people often stop to turn into local businesses and down side streets.

Distracted Driving Accidents

Distracted driving accidents can include but not be limited to: texting while driving, adjusting the radio/ gps, and dealing with issues happening behind you. It is important to focus on the road and not let other things in vehicle distract you. Distracted driving can result in a variety of different types of other accidents such as side swipe accidents, pedestrian accidents and some of the other types of accidents listed within this article. If you think you may become distracted, be sure to get off the roadways.

Head-On Collisions

Head-on collisions are typically more common on two lane roads. Plant City has numerous two-lane roads. Be sure that you remember to maintain your lane. You do not want any negligence to fall on you. Head-on collisions are often the most significant and cause the most serious of injuries.

T-Bone Collisions

T-Bone collisions often happen when a driver does not stop at a traffic signal or stop sign. Plant City does have numerous 4-way stops throughout. Be sure to make sure that you fully stopped and that you have the right of way before proceeding. When it comes to T-Bone collisions, they can often be avoided with patience and looking out for other drivers on the road.

Drinking And Driving Accidents

Sadly, there is a massive amount of press and information on the dangers of drinking and driving. I am sure we all have seen news stories as well. Even with all the information available, drivers sometimes take chances after a few beverages, and accidents due to alcohol can occur. Plant City is filled with many great restaurants and has wonderful events where one can enjoy an adult beverage. However, if you do plan to have an adult beverage, be sure to have a safe way to get home.
