Following to Closely Causes Accidents in Nashville
Nashville (September 13, 2019) – The Metro Nashville Police Department and the Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security teamed up to analyze traffic data to better understand contributing factors for the majority of accidents at major Nashville intersections from 2017 to 2018. It was determined that drivers following too closely was at the root of these accidents.
Sergeant James Williams of Metro Nashville PD commented on these results, ”Anyone who takes crash reports knows that following too closely usually stems from something else, such as looking at their phones or being distracted for another reason. It doesn’t necessarily mean they were tailgating.”
At Lerner and Rowe Injury Attorneys, we strongly encourage anywho who gets behind the wheel of a vehicle to avoid tailgating, speeding, illegal lane changes, or distracted driving. Doing so can help lessen the number of accidents and resulting injuries that happen in Nashville.
