Causes of Rear End Accidents

Causes of Rear End Accidents

Speeding is a common cause of a rear end accident, but increased cell phone use has added to the risks of a collision by a negligent vehicle operator. Drivers who are focused on a digital device do not have their attention on the road ahead.

The Wisconsin weather conditions also contribute to rear end accidents, particularly when the driver is travelling too fast for the weather and road conditions, and is unable to bring their vehicle to a halt.

Drivers who are intoxicated make bad decisions and there are high numbers of injury accidents related to drunk driving throughout the areas of Milwaukee, Kenosha, Madison, Racine, and Waukesha.
