In Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe Counties, car accidents happen every day. They have many possible reasons, but many people overlook litter and debris as a cause of crashes.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 8000 car accidents across the country each year are caused by tire problems.

Most of us consider car collisions in Homestead and across Florida to be caused by driver error, mechanical failure, and other issues. While it is certainly true these are major contributors to and causes of traffic accidents, studies have also shown that our moods can have a significant impact on our risk of car accidents.

A bad mood, for example, can lead to road rage. Uncontrollable anger can lead to speeding, aggressive driving, weaving in and out of lanes, and other dangerous behaviors which can lead to a collision, especially if you’re driving on busy city streets. In addition, road rage can lead to confrontations with other drivers, which can lead to collisions.

This can lead to situations where your car does not brake as quickly as you need to, which can cause rear-end shunt accidents. In some cases, slick roads can also lead to drivers losing control of their cars. Multiple vehicle accidents are not uncommon in these situations.
