Reckless Driving Statistics

More than 13,000 people are killed in major car accidents each year because of reckless driving. It is estimated that 30 percent of all car accidents are caused by careless drivers driving too fast. Forty percent of all fatal car accidents are caused by drunk driving.

Under California law, reckless driving is either a major traffic violation or an extreme driving offense. Reckless driving is often interchanged with driving without due care, careless driving, or improper driving. No matter what you call it, it significantly increases the risk of serious car accidents.

Reckless drivers are people who disobey traffic laws, disregard the safety of other motorists, and drive aggressively.

Speeding is one form of reckless driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nearly ten thousand victims were killed across the United States in 2018 in auto accidents caused by speeding. In 2017, speeding was a factor in 26 percent of all traffic fatalities.
