Your Driving Behavior can Increase Risk


Some examples of risky behaviors are not using headlights properly, driving too fast for conditions, tailgating, unsafe passing, or lane changing, etc.Failure to wear a seat belt is a high-risk behavior that often makes the consequences of a collision worse.

Lack of driving experience often contributes to reckless behavior. Other major factors include showing off, racing, use of drugs or alcohol, aggressive driving, etc. Remember that a drivers attitude has an impact on risk-taking behaviors behind the wheel. A bad attitude towards other drivers has a lot of influence on whether or not a driver becomes involved in a collision.
