How to report dangerous driving
Reckless driving usually goes unreported because most people don’t know how to report it or figure by the time the police get there, the dangerous driver will be long gone. If you see a driver driving while texting, drunk, sleepy, or overly aggressive and you believe people are in danger, pull over and call 911.
While 911 should not be called for general motor vehicle violations, a truly dangerous situation should be reported to reduce car accidents in Wisconsin and make our state safer to drive in. Provide as much of the following information as possible:
- Your location
- Description of the driver
- Description of the vehicle
- License plate number
- What direction they were going
- Your name and contact information
There are also a variety of apps available for documenting and reporting careless drivers. Remember to pull over before using an app or calling the police; otherwise, you become the dangerous driver, risking the lives of others and of those in your vehicle. If you or a loved one has sustained an injury from a reckless driver, contact the personal injury law firm of Warshafsky.
