What Is Negligent Driving?
Negligent driving is defined as operating a vehicle while failing to use proper or reasonable care, resulting in injury or damage to another. Negligent driving is incredibly common and can occur when a driver takes their eyes off the road for even a mere second.
Other unsafe, negligent driving examples include:
- Ignoring speed limits by speeding or driving too slowly
- Following other vehicles too closely
- Aggressive driving or road rage
- Drowsy or exhausted driving
- Lengthy driving trips without breaks
- Using electronics while driving, including texting and navigation
- Driving under the influence of alcohol or narcotics
- Not yielding to weather conditions, including rain or fog
- Eating or drinking behind the wheel
- Failing to obey traffic signs and signals
- Disregarding construction and road work conditions
- Reading while driving
- Changing lanes recurrently
- Passing other vehicles often
- Inadequate use of turn signals
- Braking purposely without cause
- Horseplay with passengers
Any time a driver’s attention is not trained directly on the road, and their attention is diverted elsewhere, they are driving negligently. When an accident results from their behavior, we can help you hold that driver responsible for their reckless actions.
How Common Is Negligent Driving?
The number of crashes occurring each year in the State of Florida are representative of a disturbing trend. A simple look around traffic patterns gives drivers a glimpse of just how negligent other drivers are in passing.
