You’ve long prided yourself on the fact that you are a safe driver. You always stay within the speed limit, set your turn signals appropriately before changing lanes, and always, always, always check your blind spot before merging. On top of your squeaky clean driving record, you maintained a squeaky clean car.
That all changed one day when a reckless driver blew a red traffic light and plowed into the side of your car. You did not see him coming, and you did not have enough time to react in a way that would spare you from physical harm. Now, your driving record has an accident on it, your car is wrecked, and you fractured a few ribs and your wrist upon impact. Also, you now find that the force and suddenness of the impact has traumatized you to some degree, where even making simple trips from home to work and back have become anxiety-ridden ordeals.
Much to your dismay, you learned a few unpleasant facts about the driver who changed your life. Not only was he uninsured, but he was driving under the influence of alcohol. He was entirely negligent of his safety and the safety of others.
