Driver negligence is the cause for many car accidents. A driver is considered negligent if he or she drives carelessly, resulting in harm to another person or damage to property. There are many ways in which a person could drive negligently. Most states have laws that define the "rules of the road." Should a driver violate any of these rules, he or she would have been negligent and responsible for any damage that results from this negligence. For example, most drivers have a duty to drive at a reasonable, prudent speed. This means that not only must drivers drive according to posted speed limits; drivers must also drive in a reasonable manner given the existing road and weather conditions. Drivers must also avoid distracted driving. This means that engaging in activities such as texting while driving would be failing to exercise reasonable care while driving. Similarly, driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol are both against the law, and would result in liability for the offending driver.
