Blog – Rear-Enders


Did you know the most common type of crash is the rear-ender, where one vehicle strikes another from behind? They are most frequently the result of dangerous driving behavior, such as speeding, tailgating, braking too late, or inattention, but can also result from driver negligence and poor brake maintenance. This type of collision usually results in less damage than other types of collisions because the vehicle being hit also moves forward in the crash, cushioning the blow somewhat.

We want you to be safe when traveling in the Selmon Extension construction zone. Please allow extra space between you and the vehicle in front of you. You never know when they may need to stop suddenly.
