Just last week, this blog looked at the prevalence of drunk driving accidents on the state's roads. Drunk driving is just one cause of the many car collisions Brevard residents attempt to avoid each and every day; distracted driving, reckless driving, and many other causes also create hazards for individuals traveling on streets and highways. At the core of many of these bad driving scenarios is negligence on the part of the responsible motor vehicle operator.
The roads in Florida can be dangerous for drivers, motorcyclists, bicyclists and pedestrians even in the best of times. Some drivers take the liberty of driving in a way that places others in jeopardy. Drivers who operate their vehicles recklessly are not just placing themselves at risk, but putting the lives of others in serious danger. The state has enacted laws to punish drivers who drive recklessly in order to dissuade drivers from committing the act. Although the law takes steps to stop reckless driving, many people are hurt by reckless drivers regularly.
