behavior that is more likely to cause damage to persons, objects or other surroundings. Often, this behavior is seen in individuals who are known to be reckless. Can also be seen in individuals who are over-worked or tired.
ACCIDENT BEHAVIOR: "Accident behavior is typically heightened in younger, less experienced drivers, as they are more inclined to become distracted or participate in activities which draw their attention away from the road."
