Types of Negligent Driving
Traffic injuries and fatalities caused by distracted driving and other types of negligence are on the rise, according to data from ADOT.
The most common types of driver negligence include:
- Cognitive distractions
- Driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol
- Failing to obey traffic signs and signals
- Failure to yield right-of-way
- Fatigued driving
- Improper use of turn signals
- Manual distractions
- Texting and driving
- Visual distractions
In 2012, ADOT reported that every day approximately 2.25 persons were killed in auto accidents, and that one person was killed every 10.65 hours. Drivers who engage in careless or reckless behavior while behind the wheel, run the risk of seriously injuring or killing themselves and others.
Injuries from Negligent Driving Accidents
Each auto accident will range in severity, and depending on where the victims are within the vehicle, the injuries they sustain will vary.
Common injuries associated with accidents involving negligent drivers are:
- Airbag injuries
- Facial disfigurement
- Fractured ribs
- Loss of limb, or amputation
- Seatbelt injuries
- Spinal Cord Injury (SCI)
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

Arizona auto accidents resulted in 3,604 injuries to children under the age of 14, and as younger drivers become more distracted by cellphones and other portable electronic devices, these numbers could increase.
