It has been said several times that America has a very strong car culture. In the modern United States, this means that drivers want faster, sleeker, tougher, bigger, or better looking cars. In order to make up for what may otherwise be seen as vehicle shortcomings, some owners and car enthusiasts have customized their vehicles with after-market parts and modifications. For some, these cars may be raced in amateur competitions at a local speedway. For others, customization is a point of pride.

Available Car Modifications
Most drivers do little to change their vehicles after they purchase them. However, there are several changes a skilled mechanic can make to a vehicle to drastically improve qualities such as speed or handling. These include:
- engine and power-performance modifications
- changes to rims or tires
- specially tinted windows
- body shape modifications
- nitrous oxide boosters
- custom spoilers
If properly installed, most of these modifications pose no more inherent danger than a factory-made vehicle. Although the cars themselves may be safe, drivers can still be extremely negligent on roads. Especially knowing their vehicle’s top speeds and ability to accelerate, drivers of customized cars may act on desires to show off their vehicle’s improvements.
If you have been injured by a reckless driver, you may be entitled to pursue compensation for your losses. Contact the Madison car accident attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ® at 800-242-2874 to discuss your case with a legal advisor today.
