Reckless Driving Accidents in Washington
Each year in the United States, reckless driving is responsible for almost one-third of all recorded traffic fatalities, resulting in an estimated 13,000 deaths on the roads. On the road, recklessness may take various forms, with driver distraction being one of the most prevalent. Distracted driving is defined as any activity that diverts your attention away from driving.
Because texting while driving may keep your eyes off the road for up to five seconds, it is one of the most dangerous kinds of distracted driving. Distracted driving collisions claim the lives of nine individuals every day and injure over 1,000 more. In 2018, 2,841 individuals died as a result of distracted driving.
