Reckless Driving Crashes in Mississippi
Driving can be incredibly dangerous, and even drivers who follow the rules of the road are at risk of suffering serious injuries. Each year, nearly 90% of reported car accidents are caused by human error. An estimated 30% of collisions are attributable to reckless driving. Statistics show that around 13,000 fatal collisions each year are caused by reckless drivers, accounting for roughly one-third of deadly collisions reported annually.
