Negligent driving according to Florida Statute 316.1925 is
1. Any person operating a vehicle upon the streets or highways within the state shall drive the same carefully and prudently, having regard for the width, grade, curves, corners, traffic, and all other attendant circumstances, so as not to endanger the life, limb, or property of any person. Failure to drive in such manner shall constitute careless driving and a violation of this section.
Examples of negligent driving are wide-ranging and can be anything from failure to stop at a stop sign, failure to yield the right of way, tailgating or the failure to obey a traffic signal. The important thing to know in regard to negligent driving is that there doesn’t have to be intent. To elaborate, a driver can be driving negligibly without meaning to do so.
Operating an automobile is not a right that is guaranteed to each citizen, it is a privilege. With this privilege comes a responsibility not only to the driver’s safety but a responsibility to the other drivers on the road. The failure to do so can result in negligible or careless driving.
