According to smartmotorists.com, over 95% of motor vehicle accidents (MVAs, in the USA, or Road Traffic Accidents, RTAs, in Europe) involve some degree of driver behaviour. The behaviour of the implicated driver is usually the primary cause. Most are caused by excessive speed or aggressive driver behaviour. Drivers should behave accordingly when on the road. They should follow traffic rules and regulations as their behaviour not only affects them but everyone involved when they get into an accident.
