What are the different types of driver negligence?

Distracted driving behavior includes texting or talking on a phone, adjusting the car entertainment system, reading a map and eating or drinking, etc.

Reckless driving: Speeding, running red lights, driving in the wrong lane, changing lanes without signalling and passing vehicles illegally are some reckless behaviors that contribute to serious car accidents.

Disobeying traffic laws: Every state has their own traffic laws. If a driver disobeys the traffic rules and causes an accident, it may be easy to prove negligence on the part of that driver.

DUI: Many car accidents are caused by negligent drivers who are either under the influence of drugs, alcohol or other substances.
