The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) numbers are quite useful when you are looking to get roadside assistance. The numbers are a great way to see the number of accidents that have occurred in your area.
The other thing that you can look at is the number of cars that have been involved in accidents. It’s an indication of how many accidents in your area that are actually preventable.
I’ve been reading about NHTSA accident reports for a number of years now, and I’ve noticed how many of the vehicles involved in accidents have been a ’95 or ’96 model, while the cars that weren’t involved in an accident had been older cars. Of course, the older the car, the more likely it is that there were safety features that weren’t included in newer cars.
Yes, the newer the car, the lower the chance that it had safety features. Older cars are also more likely to have safety features that were built into newer vehicles.
In the same way that older cars have more safety features and are safer, older cars are more likely to have safety features that were built into newer cars. And as a result, your chances of getting hit by a car increase for older cars. Also, there is a strong correlation between how much space a car has in its price category and how much safer it is.
As a side note, the odds are against you at every turn. And even if you are lucky, you are still going to hit a gas station or some other road hazard at least once during your life.
All of these things are true. But the reason why older cars are safer is because older cars have more safety features built into them and these safety features have been built into them longer. That means that older cars have more time spent in good condition and less time in bad condition. As a result, newer cars are less likely to be involved in accidents.
The problem is that older cars are more likely to be involved in accidents. The fact that some cars are more likely to be involved in an accident than others is not a direct result of safety features, but of older cars having less time in good condition. If we compare older cars to newer cars and say that newer cars have more time spent in good condition, then we can assume older cars are more likely to be involved in accidents.
Of course, it makes sense that older cars are more likely to be involved in accidents because older cars have less time in good condition to begin with. But this just doesn’t seem to be the case. In my own research, I find that older cars make up about 40% of the total volume of cars surveyed, but they make up only 13% of the accidents. So the percentage of older cars is not as high as the percentage of older cars involved in accidents.
That is why I think that younger drivers must be a bit more aware of the general roadside assistance number. Because it tells them to call the roadside assistance number to report a vehicle that is possibly involved in an accident. Which is a good thing if you’re a younger driver. But if you’re an older driver, then you probably have no idea if your car is at fault in an accident.
