Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, driving while distracted, driving at excessively high speeds, and driving recklessly are all risky behaviors that can lead to fatal car accidents. These collisions are usually avoidable if traffic laws are followed, sufficient attention is paid to the road, and responsible driving is practiced.
