When people think of a pedestrian accident, they may envision an urban environment, where someone is struck by a car and traffic is hectic.

We have covered so many of the risk factors that often cause motor vehicle crashes, and drivers should definitely keep these concerns in mind while they are on the road. However, there are many other hazards that can increase the probability of a crash, and some may not be so obvious. For example, someone who finds themselves in a new city for the first time may be more likely to collide with another vehicle. Not only do some drivers have a harder time in new cities because they are not familiar with the roads and have to constantly look for directions, but they may also be tired and very stressed out.
Roads across the country can be hazardous for different reasons. Sometimes, poor weather and chaotic streets due to large events can make driving more dangerous. There are times when an increased accident risk is somewhat predictable, such as expecting an increase in the number of drunk drivers during a holiday weekend. However, some accidents are completely unpredictable, such as those caused by a driver whose tire blew out on the road.
