“We strongly encourage all drivers to be mindful of safe driving behaviours when travelling on our roads, especially when they find themselves in one of these accident-prone areas,” AAMI spokesperson Jake Krausmann said.

“Drivers should always ensure they leave enough room between them and the car in front, avoid distractive activities like mobile phone usage, and keep to the speed limit.”

The top five contributing factors in accidents were found to be other drivers (31%), carelessness (27%), momentary loss of concentration (19%), bad weather (10%) and traffic congestion (9%).
