Many head-on collisions occur when passing on two-lane roads, because passing maneuvers fail, and one driver is left in the wrong spot, where he or she is vulnerable to striking another car head-on. These terrible (and sometimes-fatal) accidents are more common on country (rural) roads that are not as well-lit. Of course, in the city, there are street lights that help drivers to detect oncoming cars and correct for other driver's errors. Nonetheless, due to the presence of drunk drivers, or those drivers under the influence of street drugs or prescription drugs, there can be head-on collisions almost anywhere.

  • Driver error is common

These accidents are almost always caused by driver error, except for rare exceptions when a malfunctioning vehicle causes a driver to lose control and end up where he or she should not be. Poorly trained drivers, nervous drivers, angry drivers and drivers with sub-par vision may also be more likely to be involved in this type of car accident.

  • Legal issues

Various types of car insurance will protect drivers from lawsuits and other legal issues in the event of an accident, as long as very serious changes, such as vehicular manslaughter, are not laid by the police. In some cases, insufficient insurance will lead to very high bills for medical care, hospital stays, loss of regular income, legal bills, and car repairs (or the expenses related to buying a new car, if the other car was totaled in the accident).

Driving safely is paramount, as a head-on collision can cause physical problems and psychological trauma that lasts for a very long time. The awful guilt and turmoil related to hurting or killing another person is also a huge pitfall of being at fault in a head-one collision. Driving lessons or remedial driving tutoring may be court-stipulated after an accident, or they may be sought out by someone who wants to become a safer driver.
