Dangerous drivers are often people who make poor decisions and lack respect for other road users. Many drivers are incredibly respectful and courteous of their fellow road users but others may not have the same attitude and could put other road users at risk of injury. Car accidents can be fatal therefore drivers may want to keep this in mind if they are in a hurry and decide to travel at dangerous speeds. There may be areas which require a little more vigilance than others, including residential areas and areas which have an abundance of pedestrians or cyclists. It is a good idea to adjust your driving and speed to accommodate your surroundings as there may be a school nearby or there may be other hazards that you need to look out for. You should also adjust your driving habits according to the weather.
Although the speed limit may be 50mph, there may be ice on the roads or low visibility therefore you should adjust your speed to reduce the risk of being involved in an accident. If you have suffered an injury by dangerous driving and someone else was at fault for your accident on the road, you could make a compensation claim.
