Are you familiar with these examples of reckless driving?

It's your hope that everyone on the road is as courteous and safe as you are. However, you know this doesn't always hold true, as there are people out there who are in the habit of driving recklessly.

For example, truckers are notorious for reckless driving, as they have tight deadlines and schedules to keep.

Here are some of the most common forms of reckless driving:

  • Excessive speeding: It's one thing to drive a few miles per hour over the speed limit. It's another thing entirely to drive 25 miles per hour over the speed limit. This is extremely dangerous, both to the driver and everyone else on the road.
  • Passing in the right lane on the highway: Not only is it against the law, but it's extremely dangerous. If you're driving in the left lane and someone passes you on the right, you may not see them coming.
  • Racing: Motor vehicles are designed to go fast, but that doesn't mean racing on public roads is acceptable. Even if you aren't one of the people involved in the race, it could still result in an accident that causes you harm.

If you see someone, such as a trucker, driving in a reckless manner, move as far away from them as possible. You may even want to consider calling 911 to protect others.

Should reckless driving result in an accident, receive medical treatment, review your insurance policy and file a claim. Your health is job number one, but don't look past the steps you can take to protect your legal rights.
