Most Pennsylvanians are careful when driving so as to avoid causing or being in an accident. This means they avoid distractions, drive the speed limit or the appropriate speed for the current weather conditions and follow the traffic laws. People who do this are less likely to be involved in a car accident, but that will not prevent them from ever being in one.
