There were no "Estimated Accidents" made for 2004 however it has now been determined that back in 2002 there were reported to be six million three hundred and fifteen thousand motor vehicle accidents in the United States for that whole year. That figure comes down to about 173,000 accidents per day!

ALSO IN 2002: There were 2.9 million injures and 42,815 people were killed. An average of 115 persons died each day in motor vehicle crashes in the United states, that makes it, "About one death having taken place by a motor vehicle impact - - every 13 minutes"!

Below Are 4 Very Interesting Results

(Via 2003 Accident Information And Gathered Up To Date) Here In Late 2004

#1 Motor vehicle accidents are third in the "Top 10 Causes" of Safety & Health Incidents in the whole United States.

#2. 86% of these (above) "Reported- Accidents" involved only one driver. (I state "Reported" so as to protect thousands of butts financially, however - - many are not)!

#3 One third were caused by drivers losing control of the vehicle and leaving the road. The vehicle being struck from behind caused another third.

#4. Here's A New One. It's A "Biggie" And One That's Just Beginning:

Hand-held (or even hands-free) cell phones led to highly significant "Problems" in all drivers' performance.

It's not clear yet exactly how many of them caused an accident in 2003 but they are far too dangerous to attempt to operate while driving! (Just ask Dan who, while chatting furiously on a hand-held cell phone, slaughtered a huge, gray and hopefully male, squirrel).

The Following 8 Are "Facts" You Must Check Out (Via Your Insurance Agent) Now For 2005

"Why should I question my agent"? You justifiably ask.

The answer to that one is very simple, "Because your insurance carrier, may never tell you"!

#1. Should they decide your motor vehicle is a "total loss" how do they then determine the value of your vehicle?

#2. Are you entitled to payment for sales tax and registration fees for a new car? (Today there is 29 states that do so don't let this one slip out of sight because yours may be one of them).

#3. In some states you're entitled to a "Diminished Value". How about yours?

#4. What does it mean to "Stack" your coverage? Ask your agent because you may be doing that. If he does do this, how much money can you save or lose?

#5. If you do indeed make a claim how would and/or could that increase your rates? (Maybe you should not)? Again, ask your agent. If he's "legit" he should tell you!

#6. Will your credit history dramatically affect your auto insurance premium? If so what suggestions does your agent have to get around this problem?

#7. Will paying in installments increase your overall bill? (If that's true, and the way he now has it set up, how much money could you save by doing this some other way)?

#8. Other than your own Home Owners Policy is the personal property in your car covered by your auto insurance?

(If he gives you a flippant answer like, "Oh yeah, don't worry about that". Ask him to show you exactly where that's stated in the auto insurance policy).

There's no doubt that Auto Accident "Insights" become a reality and/or change. And it's for those reasons that Auto Repair with Vincent Ciulla to bring this information to its readers. Believe us when we say, "It's a pleasure to attempt to bring our readers up-to-speed"!
