Vehicle Accidents in Austin
Vehicle accidents that happen on highways are often caused by speed, driver’s inattention, fatigue, or drugs and alcohol. When accidents happen late at night, it’s usually because of driver’s being under the influence as they’re trying to get home or to their next destination. Alcohol alters perception, which includes site and the ability to react to one’s environment. Sometimes alcohol can even make objects appear as though they’re moving or make rooms feel as if they’re spinning. Under these circumstances, it’s difficult for drivers to operate their vehicles safely, which puts them at risk of causing major collisions.
