Many people would assume that firehouses are among the safest workplaces around.

The many reasons car accidents happen

Human error and mechanical problems are two of the most common reasons why car accidents occur. For instance, if a driver is under the influence of alcohol, that is generally seen as human error.

Indeed, the risk of a car accident is 16 percent greater in bright sunlight than in average weather. However, there are tips that drivers can keep in mind to improve their safety.

Driver overconfidence contributes to traffic accidents

Although New York drivers have a bad reputation, the state has a lower death rate per mile driven compared to many other parts of the country. They likely still have a strong tendency to overestimate their driving skills because overconfidence afflicts most American motorists. This attitude makes most people believe that they are safe drivers.
