Reckless Accident Statistics
Each year, hundreds of people are killed and thousands are injured in the United States due to careless drivers. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the reckless disregard for the safety of other drivers is what defines reckless driving.
It is challenging to put a number on the annual human suffering that may be linked to irresponsible driving. However, the AAA found that between 2003 and 2007, reckless driving contributed to 56% of all accidents.
The Fatal Accident Reporting System maintained by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration demonstrates that speeding contributes to many different types of fatal car accidents every year in the United States.
