Driving your car after a stressful day at work may be your only opportunity for peace and quiet. You are a busy person with friends and family. When you go to work, responsibilities await to you.

There are two types of head-on collisions: wrong way driving or swerving. Wrong way driving is when a driver heads the opposite direction of the primary traffic. Wrong way driving happens most often in cities with one-way streets. If you are unfamiliar with the area, you may find yourself driving the wrong way down one-way streets. The best way to avoid such incidences is to stay alert while driving and drive slowly as to prevent an accident.
Most often wrong way driving happens on ramps going on or off major roadways. In fact, they happen so much that states have invested in technology to prevent people from going the wrong way. Such alert systems can alert police as well as surrounding drivers that there is a wrong way driver on the road. Anyone can drive the wrong way, but most often it is people who are driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Wrong way driving does not happen often, but they almost always result in a fatal car accident.
Swerving is another way to cause a head-on collision. A driver swerves for many different reasons. The driver may be distracted by texting or talking on the phone. The driver may be distracted in other ways like reaching for something in the back seat or picking up something they dropped. A driver may be sleepy and begin to drift off to sleep causing him or her to drift into the middle of the road. Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs can also cause drivers to swerve resulting in a head-on collision.
