Speeding is often pointed to as the single most common cause of road accidents in VIC and is estimated to cause most of the deaths on Victoria's roads each year together with hundreds of non fatal serious injuries. In addition to speeding, despite the on-going campaigns against drunk driving, the proportion of alcohol-related accidents is on the rise, contributing to approximately fifteen percent of car accidents. Added together, all these factors result in an estimated 90 percent of accidents being due to driver error, with careless and reckless behaviour, driving above the speed limit or while under the influence of alcohol or driving while fatigued being major contributors. A large number of accidents after midnight are put down to fatigue.LAWYER HELPLINE: ☎ 1800 339 958
