Bad Driving Decisions Result in Car Crashes
As lawyers for auto accidents, we have seen hundreds of different reasons why car crashes happen. Collisions are called “accidents” but rarely is a car crash a true “accident.” In most cases, a car crash is caused by driver error. While the driver may not have gotten behind the wheel of the vehicle intending to injury another person, the bad driving decision the driver made resulted in the car crash.
Because of that bad driving decision, the driver is liable for any injuries, damages, and losses caused by the car crash. Some of the worst driving decisions we see as lawyers for auto accidents include:
- Distracted Driving
According to Distraction.Gov, “The fight to end distracted driving starts with you.” We completely agree. Distracted driving is becoming more of a problem on our roads than other forms of bad driving decisions. The NHTSA calls distracted driving a “dangerous epidemic” that killed 3,179 people on American roads during 2014. Distraction.Gov is an excellent source of information about distracted driving including ways you can avoid this dangerous driving decision and teach your teen driver about safe driving.
- Drunk Driving
Driving Under the Influence or Driving While Impaired are serious crimes; however, they are also bad driving decisions that can result in catastrophic car crashes. During 2014, California had the second highest rate of alcohol-impaired driving fatalities according to the NHTSA. Several organizations have pledges against drinking and driving such as AAA and MADD. If you have a teen driver, ask your teen driver to take the pledge against drinking and driving with you.
- Drugged Driving
Drugged driving, driving under the influence of drugs, is also a crime that hurts more than just the driver. Drugged driving is become more common, especially in states where marijuana is legal. It is estimated that 9.9 million people reported driving under the influence of illicit drugs in 2013. Drugged driving includes the use of illegal drugs, prescription drugs, and over-the-counter drugs. Get the facts about drugged driving to avoid this bad driving decision and teach your child not to drive under the influence of drugs.
- Reckless, Careless, & Negligent Driving
These bad driving choices range from speeding, tailgating, and other driving infractions to road rage and passing a school bus. Anytime you are behind the wheel of a vehicle, you must remember that your life and the lives of every other person you encounter could be at risk from just one bad driving decision. Research good driving decisions, practice good driving decisions, and teach your child good driving decisions. The life you save may be your own or your child’s.
