The Most Accident-Prone Vehicles…  

With populations rising, even safer cars aren’t lowering the car accident rates. So what can you proactively do to nurture your safety? Besides being a smart, responsible driver, choosing the right vehicle may help keep you out of harm’s way while on the road. Studies have found that some vehicles are more accident-prone than others. In fact, five vehicles are likely to be in an accident that’s your fault if you’re behind the wheel. If you’re in the market for a new vehicle, this article is for you.

Crash-Prone Vehicles

Safety ratings should be your primary concern when looking for a new vehicle. Safe cars can’t keep you out of an accident, but they can offer protection should you be involved in one. Avoiding accident-prone cars is an extra level of precaution for you, your loved ones, and other drivers. According to Insurify, the most accident-prone vehicles from 2021 were:
  1. Compact cars: Subaru Impreza
  2. Mid-size cars: Kia Stinger, Toyota Prius
  3. Luxury cars: Lexus CT, Infiniti Q60, Hyundai Genesis Coupe, and Subaru WRX
  4. Small SUVs: Mazda CX-3 and Hyundai Ioniq
  5. SUVs: Scion FR-6
You may find stats regarding the deadliest cars or most dangerous vehicles; however, when reviewing these numbers, be sure to understand the correlation between the number of accidents that a particular vehicle is involved in and the number of those vehicles on the road. For instance, a Newsweek article from 2021 said that the Chevy Silverado was the deadliest vehicle in the nation. It’s important to note that it’s also one of the most popular trucks to be sold in the USA. It also has a consistently high safety rating.

Follow These 3 Tips to Stay Safe While Driving

Some of the best ways to stay safe while driving is to take preventative measures.

1.  Check the Safety Ratings of Your Car Before Buying

Basing your new car purchase on safety ratings is a good way to get ahead of the accident game. When looking for a new vehicle, take this vital step before making your final decision. While most newer vehicles are considered safe these days, splurging on the extra safety features can save lives.

2.  Don’t Drive Distracted or Impaired

This means:
  1. No texting
  2. No talking on the phone
  3. No driving while tired
  4. No driving under the influence
  5. And many others
Driving is a privilege that requires your full attention, and nothing should come between you and that responsibility. Paying attention to the road sounds obvious, but a baby crying, a dog barking, and a song to turn up are all distractions. So, remember to pull over when these things take away from your ability to drive safely.

3.  Be Vigilant and Follow the Laws

If you’re not following the laws of the road, no matter how safe your car is, you’re asking for trouble. Speed limits, one ways, merging lanes, yellow lights, stop signs- all laws must be adhered to so you stay safe while contributing to the safety of other drivers and pedestrians around you.

After a Car Accident

When involved in an accident, it’s important to know all of your legal rights. If your accident was caused by another driver, you have the right to seek compensation for your injuries, medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Unfortunately, without an experienced lawyer on your side, you may find that collecting that compensation is an uphill battle.
