California has more registered vehicles than any other state in the country. It is one of the country’s most dangerous places to drive. Every day roads are flooded with traffic and are busy with long commutes and traffic jams. Every day, car accidents also happen in California and may result in serious injuries.
Reckless driving is the number one cause of accidents in California. Reckless driving behaviors include distracted driving, texting while driving, speeding, impaired driving, or failing to yield or stop at traffic lights and stop signs. Research indicates that more than one-third of all traffic fatalities in the US are caused by reckless driving. Reckless driving also causes many more accidents that result in serious injuries. Every driver is expected to operate their vehicle safely and take steps to minimize the risk of causing harm to others. Legally, this is called a duty of care. The law recognizes that vehicles can cause much harm when operated negligently, which is why they charge each driver with this legal duty to act reasonably. When a person drives recklessly, they are breaching the duty they owe to the other drivers on the road, and they open themselves up to liability for any injuries or harm they cause by their failure to act responsibly.
