Besides Driving Under the Influence, or DUI, and Driving with a Suspended or Revoked License, or DWLSR, there are other traffic crimes that someone can also be charged with. They include, but are not limited to: reckless driving, racing on the highway, vehicular manslaughter, and allowing an unauthorized minor to drive.
Reckless driving is any behavior that is dangerous under the circumstances. Reckless driving charges can occur when you are driving too fast for the conditions, have too many passengers in the car, are cutting in and out of traffic, failing to yield to other vehicles, or performing any other negligent acts.
Racing on the Highway
Racing on the highway is exactly as it sounds - it is participation in any race, speed competition or contest, drag racing or acceleration contest, or test of physical endurance.
Vehicular manslaughter is the crime of causing the death of a human being due to the illegal driving of an automobile. Ways that death can occur include gross negligence, drunk driving, reckless driving, or speeding.
Allowing an Unauthorized Minor to Drive
Finally, allowing an unauthorized minor to drive means allowing or knowingly permitting a minor under the age of 18 to drive a motor vehicle upon any highway when it is unlawful for them to do so.
