Older Cars Can Cause Accidents and Fatal Injuries
Some older adults pass down their old car to their children to cut cost. Although letting your children use an older car may be an economical option, it may also have potential risks. According to our physiotherapist in California, a lot of younger generations have experienced car accidents that result in fatal injuries and even death when driving vehicles that are ten years old and above.
Poor vehicle maintenance can be a reason that accidents and fatalities occur. For older cars, it’s possible that the brakes will suddenly fail the driver, or a tire may unexpectedly roll over because of its bad condition. The lights and wipers may abruptly stop working, blocking the driver’s view, especially when it’s a rainy evening.
If you know that your vehicle had maintenance issues in the past that could cause an accident, it’s not an option for you to let someone else use it, especially your loved ones.
