There are countless ways in which careless and negligent drivers endanger the safety of others on roadways across the country. Speeding, texting while driving, alcohol use and driver fatigue are some of the common factors associated with tragic motor vehicle collisions. However, there are other examples of dangerous and irresponsible behavior that all drivers must watch out for, such as improper passing. When a driver fails to obey traffic safety guidelines by passing another vehicle improperly and causing an accident, victims must take a firm stand for their rights.
There are different ways in which drivers threaten the safety of others on the road by failing to pass correctly. For example, a driver who tries to pass too many vehicles at once puts lives in danger, as well as a driver who has to go excessively fast in order to pass another vehicle. Sometimes, drivers even try to pass in areas where passing is prohibited. This is very dangerous because other vehicles are not always able to see oncoming vehicles that are passing, especially at intersections and around sharp turns. As a result, many innocent drivers are unable to avoid an oncoming vehicle that was not passing properly, leading to a devastating collision.
