    Traffic is uncountable, but accident is countable - accidents; unless you mean 'What are the possible causes of a traffic accident?'.

    As to an answer, Tdol and Mike have covered most causes, except conditions (water, ice, fog...), tiredness, and other accidents (such as a tree falling across the road). I don't really see what you're (ahem) driving at.
