The new infograph, When Cars Collide, details why car accidents happen and how to avoid them.

Car accidents are becoming increasingly more frequent, with drivers texting and other distracted driving happening on the road, but most of it can be prevented. To detail how car accidents happen and what causes them, Insurance Hotline released a new infograph to educate drivers on being safe on the road, not only for themselves and those they drive around, but other people on the road as well.

In Canada, about 2,209 people are killed in automobile accidents each year compared to over 40,000 in the United States. Worldwide, 1.2 million people are killed in automobile accidents. That is a very large statistic, given how many ways there are to die.

Luckily, more car accidents are preventable, if drivers remain focused on the road and responsible. A majority of auto collisions are attributed to four main causes: miscalculation, over-correction, hazardous driving behaviors (such distracted driving, speeding during inclement weather)m and human error.

According to the Wall Street Journal, most accidents involve cars colliding, but others are caused single car accidents, act of nature, vandalism, striking an animal, and hitting a pedestrian.

In the United States, Saturdays are the most common days for automobile accidents, with Sunday and Friday coming in second.
