4 Types of Reckless Drivers

Reckless driving is the cause of most motor vehicle accidents. Not only are reckless drivers a danger to themselves, but also to other drivers on the road. Here are 4 types of reckless drivers that you may encounter while your driving.

Aggressive Drivers

This type of driver is easy to identify. They will usually tailgate, swerve in and out of lanes, honk their horn, or make sudden stops or turns. These actions are very dangerous and typically result in an accident. If you see an aggressive driver on the road, make sure to keep a safe distance from them and do not show any aggression towards them.

Intoxicated Drivers

Though we all know how dangerous drinking and driving is, there are many drivers who still do it. These drivers are more commonly seen at night but can also be seen during the day. One way to detect an intoxicated driver is by noticing how they are operating their vehicle. If their car is swerving back and forth, speeding, or going very slow, stay away from them.

Speeders

Drivers who speed are seen all the time on the road. These drivers drive 20 miles per hour or more over the speed limit. Speeding commonly results in a vehicle or object collision accident. When your car is operating at a high speed, it is more difficult to stop which can cause you to crash or swerve. Make sure to avoid speeding and watch out for those who are driving fast.

Distracted Drivers

Distracted drivers are the most common type of reckless driver found on the road. Many distracted drivers can be seen texting, talking on their phone, reading, or interacting with their passengers. These characteristics of distracted driving are extremely dangerous since the driver is not paying attention. Distracted driving is the cause of many accidents, which is why it is best to put your phone away and give your full attention to the road.
