Who is Most Likely to Step on the Gas Pedal by Accident?

A recent National Highway Traffic Safety Administration study found that older females are more likely than people in other demographic groups to cause accidents by mistakenly stepping on the gas pedal instead of the brake. In fact, the study found that almost two thirds of these types of accidents were caused by older women.

As personal injury attorneys in PA, we find this study important not because it places the majority of blame on one group but because by identifying those most likely to be hurt in gas pedal crashes, those crashes may become easier to prevent. The next step is determining how to teach those most at risk to avoid these potentially serious types of car accidents.
