Negligent Operation Laws in Massachusetts

According to Massachusetts law, negligent operation or driving to endanger means operating a vehicle in a negligent or reckless manner that endangers the lives and safety of others on the road. In order to convict someone of negligent operation, the prosecution must prove (1) the defendant was driving, (2) the defendant drove on a road that is accessible to the public, and (3) the defendant drove in negligent or reckless manner that may endanger the lives and safety of the public.

Common examples of negligent operation include:

  • Speeding

  • Distracted driving

  • Tailgating

  • Fatigued driving

  • Failing to follow signs and signals

  • Weaving or switching lanes without signaling

  • Poor defensive driving

  • Driving the wrong way

  • Racing

Negligent operation is a misdemeanor offense, punishable by a maximum jail sentence of two years, driver’s license revocation for up to one year, and fines. A Boston negligent operation attorney can either negotiate your penalties down to a fine, help you obtain probation instead of jail time, or get your entire case dismissed.
