Dangers of Drift Racing
Most people do their best to drive in a responsible way that does not put other motorists at risk. Even if they are not always perfect drivers, they do not do things that will knowingly increase the risk that they will hurt, or even kill, someone in a serious accident. Unfortunately, there are some individuals who disregard the safety of others and make the road a more dangerous place by participating in the reckless driving practices associated with “drifting” or other displays of aggressive driving.
Drifting, which is a type of racing in which drivers attempt to get their vehicle to lose traction and slide on the road, is very dangerous on public roadways. When a person causes an accident by participating in an event like this, he or she deserves to be held responsible for such reckless behavior. If you have been in an accident resulting from an aggressive driver’s negligence, contact the Wisconsin car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® today at 800-242-2874.
Drifting and Aggressive Driving Displays
Drifting and regular street racing have enjoyed a great jump in popularity due to their depiction in major motion pictures and video games. Unfortunately, they are extremely dangerous. They are not the only practices that can put motorists in harm’s way, though. Other potentially dangerous behaviors include:
- “Burning out” or doing “donuts”
- Taking corners at high speeds
- Weaving through traffic
- Ignoring posted traffic signs
