Fatigued driving, not obeying traffic rules, and intoxicated driving are three dangerous examples of negligent driving. Car wrecks involving negligent, careless, and reckless drivers happen constantly. According to information provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, approximately 93% of the auto accidents reported in the United States are caused by driver negligence. Thousands of Mississippians end up in the hospital due to these wrecks every year.
