Mississippi Reckless Driving Crashes
Reckless drivers are involved in a significant percentage of deadly crashes reported nationwide. Drivers in Mississippi are known to take risks behind the wheel. The most prevalent form of reckless driving in the state is driver intoxication, which is involved in nearly 30% of the state’s roadway fatalities. Statistics show that around 22% of Mississippi drivers fail to wear seatbelts while riding in a motor vehicle, greatly increasing their risk of suffering serious injuries.
