You have the right to report a reckless driver

It happens all the time. You are driving down the road and somebody cuts in and out of traffic. Or you look ahead and you see a driver speeding up the shoulder of the road. This is extremely dangerous, not only for the person driving recklessly but also for everyone else on the road.

While you are not required to do so, you have the right to report a reckless driver. By doing so, you are helping to make the road a safer place for everyone.

If you notice somebody driving in a reckless manner, you can report the activity by calling 911. However, remember this: You should only make this call if the person is doing something dangerous.

If you decide to make the call, pull over before doing so. From there, provide the operator with as much information as possible. This includes location, license plate number, driver description and other pertinent details.

You don't want to put yourself in harm's way in an attempt to report a reckless driver. This is why it's essential to pull off the road before making the call.

If everyone followed the rules of the road, there would be fewer accidents, injuries and on the road fatalities. Unfortunately, there are people out there who don't care about the law. Instead, they make decisions based on what they want to do.

In the event that you are involved in an accident with a reckless driver, your health is more important than anything else. Remove your vehicle from harm's way, if possible, and contact the authorities for assistance.
