The Department for Transport has revealed the top ten reasons why people crash. The top reason was failure to look, accounting for more than a third of  all smashes. Failing to look properly was the reason for 38% of crashes but this differed in regions with this reason being cited in London for 57% of smashes but in the Midlands this dropped to 32%. Failing to judge other motorists speed was next followed by careless or reckless driving or being in a hurry. The full list is shown below: 

Top 10 reasons why drivers crashed in 2009 %
Failed to look properly 38
Failed to judge other person’s path or speed 20
Careless, reckless or in a hurry 15
Loss of control 15
Poor turn or manouvre 14
Slippery road (due to weather) 11
Travelling too fast for conditions 9
Following too close 6

Impaired by alcohol 5

Quite surprised by the last one. The report showed many regional differences, many of which were quite surprising, but haven’t time to provide all of those. Have you had a crash, what was the reason for yours? By Graham Hill
