What Are Some Other Types of Traffic Violation Car Accidents
We’ve covered many of the violations that lead to vehicle collisions on our car accident page. The list may seem exhaustive. In fact, there are some other violations that can lead to a car accident.
- Failure to secure a load properly – “The Beverly Hillbillies” showed the Clampett’s car loaded to the hilt with Granny on the top in her rocker. It was funny to watch on television. It’s not so funny to come upon such a vehicle on the road while you’re driving. In Georgia, people who carry a load are required to secure the load properly. When something falls off the load, it can become a road hazard. If you’re following such a load when something falls off, it can be the cause of your accident as you either swerve to avoid the falling object or run over the object. The object can crash into your car or windshield, causing you to lose control. This is true whether the vehicle with the load is a private citizen or a commercial driver.
- Passing on a hill or curve – Some drivers become very impatient or think they are impervious to harm. This form of reckless driving can lead to a collision if they decide to pass under dangerous conditions. Passing on a curve or a hill means the driver won’t be able to see oncoming traffic in time to avoid a collision. A crash may occur when they encounter the oncoming car or when they zip back into their lane to avoid a collision, which may, in turn, cause the drivers around them to slam on brakes or swerve to avoid being hit.
- Unlawful passing of a school bus – The laws are very clear that vehicles are not to pass a school bus when the red lights on the bus are flashing. This means the bus is either unloading or loading students. Some drivers do not believe this law applies to them, or they are driving carelessly and don’t notice the bus until the last second. Such a driver may crash into your car while you are waiting for the bus’s red lights to stop flashing.
- Aggressive driving – The aggressive driver is one who is willing to take chances to get further down the road faster. Such driving can be seen in the speeder who careens from one lane to the next in an effort to pass cars. It can be seen in tailgating. The aggressive driver may wait until the last second to stop at a traffic light or a stop sign, and they may jump the gun at the traffic light or stop sign. They may ignore the rules at a yield sign or four-way stop. They may treat a stop sign as a yield sign or ignore it altogether. It can be seen in reckless behavior. The aggressive driver can cause an accident in one or more of these ways.
