Urban Hazards That Cause Car Accidents

Unfortunately, every driver at some point has not given their full attention to the road and their surroundings. The sad fact is there are so many things out there that cause us to lose focus. But some of those things are out of our control and no matter how much we are focused on our driving, we can still be involved in an accident. Here, we will talk about some of the hazards that drivers come into contact with everyday. It is up to us to not cause car accidents.


We have all sat on a freeway, at a standstill, cursing whatever is causing the hold up. Sometimes distracted drivers don’t see that the cars in front of them are stopped and crash. This is potentially life threatening to everyone involved.

Sun Glare

There is a period of time everyday where the sun is right in your eyes no matter what you do. Car visors can’t help, neither can sunglasses. When the sun is like this, you are lucky to get home in one piece.

Poor Weather

Here in Atlanta, we aren’t known for getting much snow (2014 excluded) but we get our fair share of rain storms. At times the rain can come down in sheets, making visibility next to nothing. Be sure to slow down to an appropriate speed so that you have adequate time to stop.

There are many more hazards out there that can impair your driving skills. To make sure you are not involved in a car accident, make sure to use caution when your visibility is low and watch out for other drivers. If you are in a car accident, call the lawyers at Rice McGowan & Brandt to get the help you need.
