For the past few days, there has been an increase in the number of accidents occuring in our roads. Most of these accidents are caused by human error which could have been avoided. Drunk driving is one of the major causes of road accidents.

However, drunk driving is not the only act that can cause an accident. Some of the objects that people use in their vehicles can help contribute to accidents. Some of these include bottles car mats or even cartons.

Even though cases of car accidents caused by these objects are rare, they can cause very fatal accidents.

When using a bottle epsecially for drinking water, as a driver you need to make sure that you dispose it correctly. This is because Incase it falls under your pedels as illustrated below, braking the car inase of an emergency can prove to be very difficult hence causing a colision.

Another simple reason that can cause an accident is on how you place your car mats or cartons. Most people always place cartons on top of mats after the car has been washed so as to maintain their cleanliness. However,this practice might prove fatal if one is not keen on how they have placed the cartons.

If you place the cartons on top of your car pedals. An automatic car might loose control when accelerating as the brake pedal as the accelerating pedal will be moving down at the same time. This might also prove to be dangerous when it is placed on the accelerating pedal as the vehicle speed might rise without your notice.

In any case you do realise any of the above situations, do not panic just change your gear lever to neutral for your car to stop.
