The 3 Most Dangerous Types of Driving: Columbus, Ga Lawyer Mark Jones
Columbus, Georgia Lawyer Mark Jones has read a lot of police reports and reviewed a lot of paperwork on car wrecks. Three types of driving stand out as the most dangerous driving types and the most likely to cause a wreck causing injury.
1. Drunk Driving: it goes without saying that driving while intoxicated is a bad idea and could lead to the death of you or someone else on the roadway. In our civil system drunk driving is a type of “wanton” conduct, meaning that punitive damages are warranted. These are monetary damages that a jury may award against the drunk driver in a civil suit brought against the drunk driver that causes a car wreck.
2. Texting While Driving: This type of negligence driving is prevalent, but so difficult to prove. It almost takes an admission from the defendant that he/she was texting while driving because phone records are difficult to correlate exactly with when a wreck occurred and because an unsent text on a defendant driver’s phone leaves no electronic trail.
3. Drowsy Driving: this type of negligent driving impacts truckers and those making long-distance trips. Studies show drowsy driving is almost as bad as driving drunk.
