Commonly Ignored Traffic Signs: Top Cause of Automobile Injury

One of the most common causes of automobile accidents is ignored traffic signs. If a driver is quite distracted and he failed to notice the top sign in front of him, he is more likely to bump into a person or another vehicle. It is best that everyone pay attention to these signs and to take it seriously.

Here are the top 5 most commonly ignored traffic signs in Austin, TX today:

  • Road Construction Warning

Today, there are many construction sites along high ways and freeways. If the driver was not able to recognize that they have already entered a construction site, a serious accident can certainly take place. If he doesn't slow down, a chain-reaction vehicular accident will surely take place and a lot of people will surely suffer.

  • Speed Limits

We all know that a lot of people do not follow speed limit policies at all times. A lot of the drivers out there tend to go beyond the stated speed limit. The sad news is, these speed-hungry drivers drive at high rate of speed even in the rural roads, highways and even, during unfavorable weather conditions. The faster you drive, the higher chances that you will commit errors while driving. No matter how minor the error can be, it can lead to serious accidents. Cases due to over-speeding usually lead to severe injury or worse, death.

  • Stop Signs

There are some drivers which fail to stop at stop signs along the way but there are a lot of drivers who intentionally violate this traffic rule on a daily basis. If the driver fail to fully make a stop on busy intersections, he is most likely to crash into lots of cars.

  • Yield Signs

Yield signs are probably the most commonly ignored traffic sign of all. The driver, oftentimes, fail to properly judge the speed of the incoming vehicles or traffic. Because of this, he will not be able to yield right on time.

  • One Way

This is a common problem in major roads in various cities all over the world. In fact, it is recorded as one of the top cause of deaths in the road. Oftentimes, these wrong way drivers are influenced by alcohol. But there are also times when drivers have in adequate knowledge of the traffic rules in the area.
