Rear-end Collisions

A rear-end collision occurs when a vehicle crashes into the vehicle in front. We have all heard the importance of keeping a safe and appropriate amount of distance between you and the car in front. Rear-end collisions are prevalent; some contributing factors include driver inattention or distraction, tailgating, wet road surfaces, and panic stops.

A rear-end collision can occur anywhere, whether it being on an interstate stuck in traffic or driving on the street. Keeping a safe and appropriate distance between the vehicle in front is essential. During traffic hours, people tend to tailgate because they don’t want other vehicles cutting in front of them. However, it can lead to having to suddenly stop, causing panic stops by slamming on the brakes and possibly hitting the car in front of you if you don’t have the appropriate distance between vehicles.
