Reckless Driving Crashes in Mississippi
Mississippi drivers are notorious for engaging in reckless behavior behind the wheel. Speeding and driver intoxication are serious problems in the state and are involved in an estimated 15% and 30% of annual traffic fatalities respectively. Statistics reveal that roughly 22% of Mississippi motorists fail to wear a seatbelt while traveling in a motor vehicle.
