  • Speeding above the set limit or driving too fast for the present conditions.
  • Excessive or improper or lane changing, including failure to signal intent and negligence to see that the lane changes can be made carefully.
  • Improper passing, including failure to signal intent and use of the shoulder, median, or an emergency lane to pass.
