Failure to maintain lane
July 12, 2011
Drivers and passengers may suffer auto-accident injuries when other vehicles fail to stay on their side of the road. What causes these “failure to maintain lane” accidents? Rainy, snowy, or icy weather is one reason. Faulty brakes, nonfunctioning windshield wipers, and bald tires are among other reasons. Even roadway design or maintenance may create conditions that cause drivers to lose control of their vehicles. Negligent drivers cause many accidents due to inattention, roadside distractions, or fatigue. Additional reasons are driving too fast for conditions, driving too aggressively, or driving while impaired.
