Common crashes in NSW

Written by Canrone Cochin

Almost 80% of all NSW casualty crashes (where a person is killed or injured) fall into five crash types:

  1. Colliding with the rear of another vehicle (rear-end).
  2. Colliding with another vehicle coming from an adjacent direction (the left or right).
  3. Colliding with another vehicle coming from the opposite direction.
  4. Running off the road on a straight section and hitting an object or parked vehicle.
  5. Running off the road on a curve or bend and hitting an object or parked vehicle.

These crashes are also the most common crash types for provisional drivers. They can be avoided if you learn to drive from a driving school in Alexandria and follow the road rules:

  • manage your speed and fatigue
  • keep a safe stopping distance
  • take extra care at intersections and when overtaking.
