What is negligent driving?

Accidents happen. However, in many cases, the accident could’ve easily been avoided had the driver been more careful. All too often, people forget how dangerous a moving vehicle can be— a large, heavy machine usually moving at high speeds— and fail to drive responsibly. While there are a variety of ways that a driver can be considered negligent, here are some of the most common ones:

  • Driving drunk or under the influence of drugs
  • Distracted driving, such as texting or eating
  • Failing to yield for pedestrians or bicyclists
  • Defective tires or other important mechanical parts
  • Driving in dangerous road conditions
  • Unqualified or undertrained drivers for large commercial vehicles
  • Unmaintained busses or other public transportation vehicles
