What Are Lane Change Accidents?

Accidents are a common occurrence on the roadways, and many factors can play into causing them. There are a variety of types of accidents and a handful of reasons that they occur. Most of these accidents can be prevented if drivers simply take the time to pay attention to their surroundings, however, that is not always the case.

One type of accident that commonly happens on multi-lane roads is a lane change accident. These are accidents that occur when cars traveling next to each other collide. Most often, it is one driver’s fault, as they drift into the lane beside them, or steer their car intentionally into it, not knowing there is a car there already.

What Causes Lane Change Accidents?

There are a few causes for lane change accidents, the majority of them being preventable. Let’s check them out:

Distracted Driving

Driving distracted is a common cause for many kinds of accidents, however it can contribute to lane change accidents in multiple ways. If one is driving distracted, you can easily drift into the lane next to you, colliding with a car driving there. Also, if you are distracted, you may not realize that an obstruction is in front of you, and when you do look up and realize it, your first instinct may be to redirect into the lane beside you, causing the accident.

Reckless Driving

Reckless driving may include erratic lane changes, and assuming that you have enough space to cut between multiple cars, or misjudging speeds, and more. These all play into increasing the chances of being involved in a lane change accident.

Speeding

Speeding reduces the time you have to react to situations on the road. If you are going too fast, you are not allowing yourself the proper time to make sound decisions, and may cause you to divert into the next lane unexpectedly, colliding with a car already there.

Road Conditions

Hazardous weather may cause slick roadways, inadvertently making it harder to control your car. In these circumstances, your vehicle may drift into the next lane without it being intentional.
