What Causes Rear-End Collisions?
Distracted driving is the No. 1 cause of rear-end collisions, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). In fact, some form of driver distraction contributes to 87% of rear-end crashes. Speeding and tailgating are also leading factors in rear-end collisions
