Vehicle Failure Car Accidents
Faulty vehicles account for roughly 3% of all UK car accidents. Some vehicle failures are due to flaws with the design or production of the car, which often lead to vehicle recalls if the problem is widespread.
However, the majority of vehicle failures that occur are down to poor car maintenance.
Under or over inflated tyres, worn brake pads and discs and faulty headlights and brake-lights are just some of the common problems that increase the chances of a person being involved in a car accident. Therefore, it is very important for motorists to check their tyres, lights, oil and water levels on a weekly basis, or even twice a week for those who cover long distances each day.
Problems that cannot be easily identified or fixed should be checked out by a mechanic immediately.
