Carelessness in one or more forms is often involved in a collision, and it is one of the leading causes of automotive accidents in South Carolina. In rare cases, some drivers may be driving too fast for the prevailing weather conditions. In certain cases, drivers may disregard traffic signals because they are preoccupied with their phones rather than focusing on the road as they should. This is potentially hazardous for everyone on the road.
