Common Causes of Rear-End Collisions

There are several common reasons why a driver rear-ends another vehicle including:

  • Distracted driving: Texting, reading, eating, applying make-up or talking on the phone are distractions, taking critical attention away from the road.
  • Speeding: If a driver is speeding and does not observe speed laws, coming up on a stopped or slowed car, he or she will have less time and room to slow down before hitting the car ahead.
  • Tailgating: When a driver follows another car too closely, they are much more likely to hit the car ahead if it stops.
  • DUI or Impairment: Judgement or special relation, reaction time, ability to focus and ability to predict traffic changes are all impaired by substances such as alcohol or drugs.  This makes causing an accident much more likely.
