  1. Distractions from cell phones
  2. Adjusting the radio, CD player, or mp3 player
  3. Eating while driving
  4. Rubbernecking
  5. Driving while intoxicated
  6. Driving under the influence of drugs
  7. Distractions in the vehicle such as kids or pets in the backseat
  8. Speeding
  9. Aggressive driving or general recklessness
  10. Poorly maintained roads

Frustratingly, even if you are driving safely, you can still be hurt by someone who is distracted, intoxicated, or otherwise acting recklessly while on the road.
