Governor vetos car insurance damages bill

The Louisiana governor did not agree with other lawmakers in the state, who had passed a new bill that would reform the way car accident damages are handled.

Maybe it's the driver texting at a light and forgetting to drive when it turns green. Maybe it's the tailgater who refuses to pass but also won't give you more than a foot of space.

You watch drivers around you on the road make mistakes almost constantly, and you get an idea of what types of crashes you could get involved in. Maybe someone decides to send a text message while driving toward you and drifts in your lane. Maybe a truck driver doesn't see your car on the interstate and begins merging right into the side of your vehicle. There are countless examples.

Examples of reckless driving

Reckless driving goes beyond breaking the speed limit or not being careful enough behind the wheel. It typically means that the choices that the driver made put others in danger and that it was obvious that they did so. The driver made a choice to engage in that type of behavior even though it increased the risk of a crash.
