#1. Failure to Yield Right-of-Way Violation (141% future crash likelihood increase)

#2. Failure to Use / Improper Signal Conviction (116% future crash likelihood increase)

#3. A Prior Crash (113% future crash likelihood increase)

#4. Reckless Driving Violation (104% future crash likelihood increase)

#5. Improper or Erratic Lane Changes Conviction (85% future crash likelihood increase)
