Rear-end accidents are the most common auto accidents in the country.

They’re ordinarily caused by one vehicle following another vehicle too closely. Although that might be a presumption because the following driver that hit the vehicle in front of them is permitted to present evidence that they were brake checked, and that the reckless actions of the brake checking driver in front of them was the actual cause of the accident.

The term “brake check” originally came from auto racing. A driver would brake check a following vehicle when another car is driving too close, intentionally braking very abruptly.

There’s a reason that brake checking is against the law. It’s dangerous!

The best way to handle a person driving like this is to get out of their way.
