What counts as reckless or negligent driving?
In some cases, vehicle wrecks are caused by reckless or negligent driving rather than just an accident. Reckless driving consists of making obviously dangerous mistakes that put other people in harm’s way. Examples of this include:
- Drunk driving
- Driving while texting
- Driving at unsafe speeds
- Failure to utilize turn signals or hand signs to indicate turning
Every driver learns the same proper driving techniques, so that is what is expected of everyone. When someone fails to follow these reasonable safe driving practices, it is considered to be negligent driving.
Even when you are driving as safely and conscientiously as possible, a negligent driver can put you and your loved ones at risk.
