Well, we have two separate complete sentences, and joined with a comma
the reader is easily confused into reading "attempts" as a verb, even
though admittedly it would be singular and thus not a complete match to
"the simultaneous sections".

am lazy) in order to save the reader from backtracking.

Obviously, I'll let myself be overruled by native speakers if this
reasoning is considered wrong.
