What are the Causes of traffic congestion?
High volume of vehicles
During peak hours, when there are too many vehicles on the road, it can lead to a traffic jam.
Bottlenecks and chokepoints
Construction zones, inadequate capacity, and narrow roads, can create bottlenecks, slowing down the flow of traffic.
Collisions, breakdowns, or other incidents, can cause blockages, lane closures, resulting in traffic jams.
Poorly designed roadways, lack of adequate traffic management systems, and insufficient road capacity, can contribute to congestion, especially in areas experiencing rapid population growth.
Traffic signal timings
Traffic signals that are not timed correctly can cause delays and disruptions in the flow of traffic.
Road closures and special events
Sporting events, concerts, festivals, or road closures for maintenance can divert traffic, disrupting normal traffic flow.
Public transportation limitations
Insufficient public transportation systems force citizens to rely heavily on personal vehicles. This can increase traffic congestion.
Poor weather, such as sleet, snow, fog, or heavy rain can reduce visibility, leading to congested traffic.
What are the Common Types of Car crashes that Occur as a Result of High congestion on Roads?
Various types of auto accidents commonly occur as a result of traffic congestion.
Rear-end collisions are the most common, as drivers may not be able to stop in time.
Sideswipe collisions are common when drivers attempt to change lanes without signaling properly or failing to check blindspots due to heavy traffic.
Intersection crashes can occur when traffic congestion prevents motorists from clearing intersections in a timely manner, resulting in cross traffic accidents.
