As a driver, you have to watch out for many different hazards on the road, including the behavior of other drivers. From alcohol use to prescription medication and fatigue, all sorts of risks are present on roadways across the U.S. Unfortunately, distracted driving remains particularly problematic and many drivers do not even realize that certain habits or activities take their attention off the road.

Narrow roads and the risk of an auto collision

There are many different environmental factors that contribute to motor vehicle accidents, such as the prevalence of ice and snow on roadways. However, there are many other ways in which the obstacles a driver may face on the road can lead to a collision. For example, driving on certain roads may be especially dangerous because the lanes are very narrow, or a driver may even have to drive down single-lane roads. If you regularly find yourself on roads that are narrow or ever come across an extremely narrow road, it is vital to be vigilant.
