Rear-End Crashes Most Common Type of Collision, ADOT Reports
Posted on behalf of Phillips Law Group on Aug 19, 2020 in Auto Accidents
According to the vehicle crash data from the Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) of the 111,090 multi-vehicle crashes that happened in the state in 2019, almost half (47,936) were rear-end crashes. Rear-end crashes are the most common type of vehicle collision in Arizona by far.
Left-turn crashes are the second most common. In 2019, there were 18,903 left-turn crashes.
Head-on collisions are one of the least common types of crashes, accounting for 1.8 percent of all crashes. ADOT says the best way to avoid rear-ending another vehicle is to not speed and to leave plenty of room between you and the vehicle in front of you. Not driving while distracted, wearing a seat belt, and using turn signals will also help keep you safe while driving, according to ADOT.
