Most people believe that faster cars inherently cause more accidents. Drivers of sports cars are unfairly perceived as taking unnecessary risks. The public assumes people who operate fast cars tend to speed and drive more aggressively. Nevertheless, sports cars have several key advantages that help avoid crashes. All things considered, fast cars offer enhanced safety features, like anti-lock brakes, electronic stability control systems, and improved steering. Additionally, tighter suspensions and lower centers of gravity provide fast sports with superior handling and traction. Although more powerful engines may speed up acceleration and cruising speeds, the above features enable sports cars to perform evasive maneuvers and stop faster.
Regardless of the type of car, bad, inexperienced, or irresponsible drivers present more risks than cautious and more experienced drivers. For instance, the Nissan 350z has a fatal accident rate almost double of other sports cars. At the same time, it is also one of the most popular sports cars among teen drivers, who, on average, are involved in more crashes. Driving an ordinary vehicle does not make high-risk behavior less likely to cause an accident. Driving while distracted, fatigued, or intoxicated are far more dangerous than driving a fast car. In the end, the car an individual is driving does not make as much of a difference as the driver. Whether a prudent driver is put behind the wheel of a Lamborghini Aventador or a Dodge Grand Caravan, the driver is still going to drive safely. On the other hand, reckless or careless drivers are still going to pose a danger regardless of the cars they are driving.

Whether you drive a sports car or an ordinary vehicle, the same factors contribute to an overwhelming majority of crashes. While poor road design, inadequate road maintenance, and vehicle equipment failures often influence car accidents, the primary cause is negligence. In one form or another, bad driving behaviors cause over 95 percent of car collisions. Regardless of the car model, speeding and aggressive driving can cause drivers to lose control of their vehicles and decrease the effectiveness of safety apparatuses. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), in a single recent year, speeding was a factor in 27 percent of all fatal car accidents. In that year alone, there were more than 9,550 speeding-related fatalities throughout the country. Many of the fatal collisions involving speeding drivers happen at night while drunk. Roughly 45 percent of speeding drivers that suffered deadly accidents had blood alcohol contents of at least .01. The first step to avoiding any type of car accident is learning how to drive safely and cautiously. Although you cannot control other motorists on the road, driving defensively, avoiding distractions, and taking extra protective measures can reduce your risks of being the victim of an accident.
