Mississippi Car Crashes
Drivers in Mississippi have a dangerous and reckless reputation. Over a quarter of drivers have admitted to texting while behind the wheel. The Mississippi Department of Health says that over a third of American citizens say they have engaged in distracted driving, speeding, or intoxication while driving. Over 21% of drivers between the ages of 15 and 19 admitted to using smartphones minutes before an accident involving fatalities.
Driver negligence causes more wrecks than inclement weather and vehicle malfunctions combined. Regardless of the many safety rules and regulations put in place to help keep everyone safe while on the roadway, some people choose to disregard these rules and make up their own. This is dangerous and selfish and could lead to severe injuries or worse. Approximately 9 out of 10 car crashes in the United States are the result of driver negligence. Currently, speeding is the leading cause of car crashes in Mississippi, while distracted driving is the leading cause of car crashes throughout the United States.
