According to Florida law, reckless driving involves “driving any vehicle in willful or wanton disregard for the safety of persons or property” (Title XXIII, Chapter 316). People who drive unsafely cause thousands of preventable car accidents every year in the United States, causing serious injury or death to innocent people and leaving victims and their families to deal with various physical, emotional, and financial burdens. Reckless drivers who cause accidents may not only face criminal prosecution but can also be held civilly liable by an injured victim or their family.
What is Reckless Driving?
Reckless driving can occur when a driver commits one or more moving traffic violations that significantly endangers nearby property or people. Aggressive driving greatly increases the risk of an accident and places other drivers, pedestrians, motorcyclists, and bicyclists in serious danger. Reckless driving includes the following actions:
- Excessive speeding
- Street racing
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Weaving between lanes
- Disregarding traffic lights and signs
