Every day, several auto accidents ranging from minor to major ones take place in different parts of the city. While most auto accidents are not fatal, the majority of them involve some form of injury to the drivers and their passengers and damage to the vehicles.
Most auto accidents happen on highways and at busy intersections in the city. Accidents on highways are usually the result of high speed and reckless driving. Accidents in the city and intersections can be attributed to factors such as inaccurate road signs, poorly placed directions and confusing turn lanes. But most accidents happen due to driving under the influence and careless/reckless/negligent driving.
