We assume many responsibilities when we drive on our roads and highways and understand that there are a number of potential dangers associated with driving. In all likelihood, most drivers have either experienced an accident firsthand or they have had a family member or close friend that has been injured in an auto accident. A significant number of motor vehicle accidents each year are attributable to reckless driving behaviors.

Definition of Reckless Driving
There are certain measures that you can take to reduce the likelihood that you will become the victim of another driver’s recklessness, but defensive driving isn’t always enough to protect yourself. The following are representative of the kinds of behaviors that serve as an indication that an individual is driving recklessly rather than within the prescribed manner:
- Drowsy driving
- Unnecessary braking
- Following too closely (tailgating)
- Driving at excessive speed
- Failure to obey rules of road
- Drunk driving
- Distracted driving
- Frequent and rapid lane changes
