Reckless driving is a concern, not only for Texan drivers but for those across the country as well.
Recent studies have found that nearly 32 percent of drivers view aggressive driving as an important safety concern on the roadways in the United States.
When a driver is driving carelessly on the road, they are more likely to engage in reckless behaviors such as speeding, tailgating, and being inattentive to roadway hazards.
