The statistics for automobile accidents in Arizona are sobering. According to ADOT in 2018: (https://azdot.gov/sites/default/files/2019/07/2018-arizona-motor-vehicle-crash-facts-highlights.pdf)

  • Over 1,000 fatal crashes

  • Of all alcohol-related crashes, roughly 75% percent occurred in urban areas and 25% percent in rural areas.

  • One person was killed in a motor vehicle crash every 9.11 hours.

  • Seven in 10 crashes occurred during daylight hours.

  • More crashes occurred in October than any other month with 11,744.

  • Friday was the peak day of the week for all crashes during 2018 with 21,981, while the most fatal crashes occurred on Saturdays.

While the cause of every auto crash is unique there are several common threads such as:

  • Distracted Drivers: In most cases, the driver is distracted by their cell phone, the radio, GPS, looking for something in the car, talking with passengers, or is looking at something on the side of the road.

  • Driving Under The Influence (D.U.I.): A lot of accidents occur when one driver is under the influence whether it's prescription drugs, alcohol, or illicit drugs. Just because the police may not have investigated the accident as a D.U.I. does not mean the responsible party was not under the influence.

  • Reckless Driving: This includes weaving in and out of traffic, excessive speeds, or dangerous turns.

  • Malfunctioning Equipment: Sometimes an accident occurs due to a manufacturer’s defect such as accelerator issues, tire defect, airbag failure, etc.
