40% of accidents occur while driving and more than half of accidents occur when a driver hits or collides with the car in front of his or her car with lack of care. While driving, please drive safely with care regardless of a lot of distractions, such as other cars, surrounding people and things.
Cause: A driver could not stop the car at intersection when signal is red. The driver collided with the car in front.
Solution: In Japan, when the signal turns yellow, many cars slow down. If you cross the intersection in hurry, you are not aware of car slowing down in front of you and collide with the car. Please be aware of your speed and the distance between cars. You should take the distance as many as your speed. For example, if you drive at 40km/h, you should take the distance as many as 40km/h.
Cause: The car slipped and hit a guardrail due to snowing or icy roads.
Solution: Please drive with studless tires when the winter season and areas are with snow. Roads get slippery due to snow, so you have to grip your steering and drive more slowly than usual. Also visibility gets worse when it is snowing. You have to take the long distance between cars, care for surroundings, and drive with safety.
Cause: After a driver made the mistake with a right turn lane, he or she changes the right lane then his car hit the following car.
Solution: Going straight from a right turn lane is prohibited as a traffic law violation. If you enter a right turn lane, please turn right or make a U‐turn without going straight. Then you go back to the original road. What is more, a driving lane is reverse in your county. Drive very carefully unless you are accustomed to driving.
！Making U-turn is sometimes prohibited in a right turn lane. Please be aware of this.
