What are the odds you’ll be in a car accident during your lifetime?

According to the numbers from the car insurance industry, on average a driver will get into a crash once every 18 years.

Many accidents relate to aggressive driving, speeding, buzzed and drunk driving, and the distractions of technology. Even dialing a phone number while driving more than doubles your risk of being in an accident.

A study done by The Virginia Tech Transportation Institute found that when drivers texted, their collision risk was 23 times greater than when not texting.
