Most Common Reckless Driving Behaviors

Reckless driving refers to any type of driving behavior that disregards one’s own safety and the safety of others. This can take many different forms, but generally, anything that unnecessarily threatens harm could be considered reckless. The attorneys of Ausband & Dumont see many reckless driving incidents every year in the Atlanta area, and know that lots of drivers suffer as a result of their injuries and the costs they may be facing. However, the victims of reckless driving may be able to take legal action to address these costs.

Types of Reckless Driving

Reckless driving can take dozens of forms, but some seem to arise more often than others in personal injury claims. For instance, the following are among the more common forms of reckless driving:

  • Speeding
  • Following too closely
  • Running red lights
  • Running stop signs
  • Failing to use turn signals
  • Failing to merge / yield
  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Road rage / aggressive driving

Each of these dangerous driving behaviors can put others at risk of injury in a car accident. These accidents can mean significant injury, expense, and damage for anyone involved.
