Reckless driving is when someone drives unsafely, with deliberate disregard for safety and with the full knowledge that their driving may cause an accident. A reckless driver could be found reckless, if he or she drives in a threatening or harassing manner out of "road rage" and causes a car accident. Road rage is an assault with one motor vehicle against the operator or passenger(s) of another motor vehicle. Criminal charges will also stem from such behavior.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) defines aggressive driving as a progression of unlawful driving actions such as:
Improper or excessive lane changing
Failing to signal intent
When Faced With an Aggressive Driver:
Get out of the way
Do not challenge the aggressive driver
Avoid eye contact
Report serious aggressive driving
Texting While Driving
Even though we are all aware of the dangers of texting while driving, texting has become one of the most dangerous distractions for our nation’s drivers.
Throughout the country there have been numerous fatal accidents involving text messaging.
Stop texting while driving today!
Drunk Driving Accidents
Drunk Driving is a choice. Each one of us is aware of the risk involved when drinking and driving, yet too many people decide to take the chance. Tragically, drunk driving is one of the leading causes of injuries and death on our nation's roads today. When a driver chooses to break the law and operate a vehicle after drinking, they have just chosen to gamble with someone’s life.
Drunk driving car accidents often result when a driver speeds, drives too slowly, makes an improper turn in front of oncoming traffic, fails to stop at a red light or stop sign, drives on the wrong side of the road or rear-ends another vehicle. In some cases, the supplier of the alcohol may be found negligent as well.
The victim of a drunk driving accident is often left with overwhelming emotional trauma as well as expensive and sometimes debilitating personal injuries. Injuries can range from minor scratches to complete paralysis or death.
Side Impact Collisions
Side impact collisions are very serious and common accidents. They are responsible for approximately 8,500 deaths per year.
A side impact collision occurs when the front of an oncoming vehicle strikes the side of your vehicle. This is also known as being t-boned. Most of these incidents occur at intersections as the result of a failure to yield at a stop sign or red light.
The seriousness of side impact collisions depends on several factors, including the speed and weight of the oncoming vehicle, and where that oncoming vehicle collides with yours.
Fatalities due to side impact collisions can be reduced when a vehicle is equipped with side airbags. It is important to understand that children under the age of 12 should not ride in the front seat. The power with which an airbag deploys can cause death to a child, regardless of the severity of the impact.
Asleep at the Wheel
Falling asleep at the wheel is very common. Nearly four percent of deadly crashes nationwide involve sleepy drivers, and hundreds more are injured every year from drivers who have fallen asleep at the wheel.
Any accident involving a fatigued driver is preventable. If you are driving and feel as though you may fall asleep at the wheel, please pull over into a rest area. Although it may be inconvenient, the caution far outweighs the consequences.
Truck drivers are a huge concern for they repeatedly drive while fatigued. Fortunately, the U.S. Department of Transportation's Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) has implemented rules limiting the hours a driver may be on the road. The FMCSA estimates the new rule will save up to 75 lives and prevent as many as 1,326 asleep at the wheel accidents every year.
If a member of your family has been injured or killed because of a vehicle rollover accident, the road conditions or even the vehicle itself could have caused the accident.
To prove a road defect was present or that there was a design or manufacturing defect, you need an experienced personal injury attorney.
