Driving on roads only works as well as it does because we agree to a certain set of rules- one of the basics is which side of the road to drive on. We agree that people going one direction will go on one side of the road, while people going the opposite direction will drive on the other side, and we will only cross the other side while following specific rules. Wrong way driving breaks those rules, and are a danger to everyone on the road. Sometimes, though, people break that fundamental rule and drive on the opposite side of the road.

“My daughter was a passenger in a car accident. The insurance company refused to pay because her friend did not have a full coverage policy. Ariana Byrd took on the case. Her primary goal was to ensure my daughter had proper medical treatment. She did not let the insurance company off the hook. She kept us informed almost weekly on the progress of the case. She is very professional, knowledgeable of the law, responsive, and kept her promises to get my daughter’s best deal. I highly recommend her.” – Marwan Aiche (Read this Review on Google)
There are a few different things that can cause wrong way driving, the most frequent of which is some kind of driver error. 50 – 75% of all wrong way drivers are driving under the influence.
Wrong way drivers tend to drive in the left lane, which is why you should move as far to the right as possible if you see a wrong way driver. According to the National Transportation Safety Board, about 7 out of 9 wrong way driving accidents occur in the left-hand lane.
The truth is that wrong way drivers are not very common. In Arizona in 2020, out of 255,259 accidents, only 162 of them were wrong way driving accidents, making up 0.07% of the total. However, they often result in head-on collisions– one of the most dangerous types of crashes.
