Driver Negligence

The driver behind the wheel of the rental car in question is just as susceptible to driver negligence as any other driver is, and he or she may be more so. People tend to rent vehicles when they are out of town and are, thus, less familiar with the area. Additionally, such drivers are typically behind the wheel of vehicles that they’re less familiar with. Driver negligence can include all of the following:

  • Excess Speed – Speed plays far too central a role in traffic fatalities, and when motorists refuse to maintain safe speeds, they make our roadways more deadly.
  • Distraction – Driver distraction is quickly becoming one of the most dangerous forms of driver negligence. Motorists in rental cars are responsible for acclimating to the unfamiliar vehicle before heading out on the road and for not being distracted by the car itself.
  • Impairment – Drivers who are impaired by alcohol and/or drugs abdicate their responsibility of driving safely from the outset.
  • Exhaustion – Drowsy drivers experience their own form of impairment that makes them unsafe drivers. Because traveling is often exhausting, drivers in rental cars may be even more susceptible to drowsy driving.
