Aggressive and Careless drivers in Florida cause deaths. The National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA) estimates that 66 % of all traffic fatalities annually are caused by aggressive drivers. Aggressive driving includes running red lights, passing on the right side, and tailgating. In 2004, over 900 people were killed and 168,000 were injured in crashes that involved running a red light.
In Florida, a person, who drives recklessly, can be issued a citation for careless driving, reckless driving, and / or other driving infractions. If the recklessness rises to the level of criminal charges, a person can be arrested in Florida.
