Reckless Driving Accidents in Mississippi
Drivers who engage in reckless actions behind the wheel are more likely to cause serious car accidents. Mississippi drivers have a reputation for being reckless on the roads. An estimated 30% of the state’s traffic fatalities are caused by drunk drivers, and nearly 22% of drivers in Mississippi fail to wear seatbelts while traveling in a car. Nearly 90% of reported car accidents are attributable to human error.
