Reckless Driving Accident Attorney
Reckless driving is unfortunately a regular occurrence on the roads, even more so in a city like Las Vegas, where distractions and intoxicating substances abound. Reckless driving is far too common, and is witnessed and experienced everyday on the roadways, especially during rush hour, a time where there is higher than normal traffic and above average stress. When running late for work, or in a rush to get home after a long day, emotions can run high and may present themselves as reckless driving.
Types of Reckless Driving
Reckless driving can present itself in a variety of ways including:
Speeding involves going any amount of speed over the designated limit. Excessive speeding may be a sign of reckless driving, especially during times when traffic is at a halt, or is frequently stopping.
Tailgating involves following the vehicle in front of you too closely. When this occurs, the time that the driver has to react to the car ahead is significantly decreased. This causes unsafe road conditions and allows for preventable accidents to happen.
Running Red Lights
Running red lights instead of stopping appropriately at them can cause major accidents in intersections when other vehicles are crossing through them.
Unnecessary, Erratic Lane Changes
Lane changing is a regular occurrence when driving at any time, however, without proper signalling, and recklessly doing so, accidents can happen.
Illegal passing involves passing in clearly marked no-pass zones, as well as passing on roadway shoulders, and more.
Since reckless driving is so common, lots of accidents are caused because of it. Typically with reckless driving accidents, the driver at fault is fairly easy to spot. However, the responsible drivers may be difficult to deal with and not ready to admit they are the ones to blame. In these circumstances, it is always best to have an experienced, knowledgeable attorney on your side.
