What is so dangerous about tailgating?

Tailgating is a particularly common type of risky driving. This behavior entails following too closely behind another vehicle and often results in rear-end collisions. While some drivers tailgate purposely in order to intimidate other motorists, others may do so because they are not paying attention to the road.

Why driving while buzzed is more dangerous than you think

Most people know that getting behind the wheel while drunk carries the risk of causing a serious accident. If you ask your friends how drunk is too drunk to drive, chances are they will bring up the legal definition of a 0.8 percent blood alcohol level. They may also mention clear signs of impairment such as lack of physical coordination. What many people still do not know is that buzzed driving can be just as risky and is to blame for a high percentage of serious crashes.

How alcohol affects driving skills

Everyone knows that drunk driving is not safe. Almost one third of traffic fatalities in the United States can be attributed to impaired drivers. This is because alcohol affects areas of human functioning that are essential to driving safely. While some people may downplay the effect alcohol has on them and claim that they are fine to drive, the biological mechanisms of alcohol impairment work the same for all human beings.

Four reckless driving behaviors

Reckless driving is a major cause of automobile accidents and injuries on the road. There are several types of behavior that signal reckless driving. Avoid falling into the trap of engaging in these behaviors. If you see other drivers on the road doing any of these things, the best way to keep yourself safe is to stay as far away from them as possible.
