Have You Lost a Loved One in a Car Accident?
Left turn accidents are so common in California and all through the USA. They are caused by motorists who turn left in front of approaching traffic.
Some of the factors that contribute to left-turn accidents include:
- Drivers fail to yield to oncoming vehicles and make a left turn in front of a car.
- When a motorist turns left in front of a car without correctly calculating the speed of the oncoming vehicle.
- When a driver is distracted by activities such as receiving a call and fails to see approaching cars and thus turns in front of a car.
- When a driver is driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol, it impairs their judgment, thus increasing the probability of a left-turn accident.
