  Contributing Factors. The road accidents are happening most often due to the reckless and speedy driving of the vehicles, not obeying or following traffic rules, the attitudes of the “right of the mighty” bigger vehicles toward the smaller vehicles, overburdened or overcapacity hauling of public and transport vehicles, poor maintenance of the vehicles, .

In those situations, a skilled car accident attorney may be able to dig deeper and find an underlying cause of the collision: poor road design. Throughout the United States, our roads, highways, and streets are designed to withstand a fair amount of traffic.

[Paul J Claffey] -- Reliable running costs based on field tests of motor vehicles are presented as broken down into the cost categories of fuel, oil, tire wear, maintenance, depreciation, and accident costs.

Running cost of motor vehicles as affected by highway design; interim report. [Paul J Claffey; National Research Council (U.S.).

How Road Design Can Contribute to Auto Accidents. Factors in road design that may contribute to the likelihood of an accident include: Banking / Camber - When roads and highways curve, the outside edge of the curve is often raised such that the surface of the road is at an angle.

This banking of the roadway takes the speed of traffic into consideration, makes it easier for vehicles. The road rules are a framework for safe and efficient movement of traffic on NSW roads. The information given in this section is a guide only and is subject to change at any time without notice.

This information is also available in the Road Users Handbook. Our guides to car running costs, fuel prices, car tax, eco-driving and more will help you choose a car that fits your budget and keep running costs to a minimum.

In fact, the Boston Consulting Group estimates that, bynearly a quarter of “all miles driven” in the US will be from shared self-driving cars.

ABI Research estimates that, also bythere will be 11 million shared driverless vehicles on the road globally – or about 5 percent of the world’s traffic population. Insurance: Costs are based on a full-coverage policy for personal use of a vehicle by a driver who is under 65 years of age, has more than six years of driving experi-ence, no accidents and lives in a suburban/urban location.
