Street Racing and Reckless Drivers
While the majority of drivers on the road are courteous and do their best to keep the road safe for everyone using it, some people believe that they are above the law and treat roadways as their personal playgrounds. When two drivers decide to race on a public road, they not only endanger themselves, but also put the lives and wellbeing of other motorists, cyclists, and pedestrians in jeopardy.
If you have been involved in an accident caused by the recklessness of a street racing driver, you may be entitled to compensation. To learn more about your legal options, contact the Wisconsin car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® by calling 800-242-2874.
The Dangers of Street Racing
While the allure of speed and competition may get the best of some drivers, the potential consequences of street racing can truly be catastrophic. The high speeds and aggressive nature of racing greatly increase the risk of the following events:
- Loss of control.
- Spin outs.
- Failure to yield.
- Pedestrian accidents.
- Running stop signs, traffic lights, and yield signs.
- Accidents causing serious injuries or fatalities.
When drivers make the decision to participate in street races and end up causing an accident, they should be held responsible for their negligent actions.
If you or someone you love has suffered damages because a reckless driver decided to put their entertainment above the safety of the public, the negligent party may be found liable.
