Thankfully there are very few dangerous drivers on our roads today. The vast majority of people understand how important it is to make sure they are competent and able to drive a vehicle without endangering anyone else. This means driving at or below the speed limit, according to the conditions of the road, and being alert to any potential hazards around them.
While very few people could be described as dangerous drivers, each year sees accidents happen that are the result of dangerous driving. Unfortunately it is very often innocent people who are seriously hurt in such incidents. In some cases they are driving another vehicle and just happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. In other cases they might be a passenger in a vehicle, or even a pedestrian.
