Abstract: In 2011, dangerous-driving actions were a contributing factor in 12 percent of all traffic collisions and 23 percent of fatal collisions in Indiana. The number of dangerous-driving collisions in Indiana decreased four percent from 2010 to 2011 and one percent on average from 2007 to 2011, yet aggressive-driving collisions increased five percent in 2011 and four percent on average.. Drivers involved in collisions who were driving dangerously were less likely to have valid licenses and more likely to be habitual traffic violators or have suspended or revoked licenses. Additionally, drivers with a history of convictions for dangerous driving offenses were more likely to be driving dangerously at the time of collision than those without a history.
