When people get behind the wheel of the car, they take on a great responsibility. They are not only responsible for themselves and the people in their car, but their actions affect everyone on the roadway. This includes other drivers, passengers, pedestrians and bikers. In fact, no matter who is near the roadway, they can be put in danger when a driver acts recklessly.

These errors and dangerous driving habits can include following another car too closely, speeding, ignoring posted signs and failing to use a turn signal.
