Our Atlanta Car Accident Lawyers Handle All Accident Claims Involving Acts of Aggressive Driving and Road Rage.
Aggressive driving and road rage issues are rising across the country. Aggressive driving occurs when a driver fails to yield or follow the rules of the road. Often, drivers are in a hurry and are speeding or engaging in dangerous driving.
Road rage can be even more traumatic for victims. When a driver intentionally threatens another driver with their vehicle, serious injuries and damages can occur. These willful acts must be handled by the law.
While aggressive driving is typically considered a traffic violation, those who engage in road rage can be prosecuted. In some cases, a driver could be charged with a felony when they attack another driver with their vehicle.
Acts of aggressive driving and road rage result in serious injuries and even fatalities. If you have been injured or a loved one has been killed in such an incident, you need an experienced car accident attorney to fight for your rights.
What Are the Signs of Road Rage & Aggressive Driving?
Road rage is becoming a serious blight on society. According to the American Psychological Association, 30 people are murdered each year due to road rage. Around 37% of acts of aggressive driving involve a firearm.
The following are some of the signs of road rage and aggressive driving.
Speeding up or slowing down too close to another driver
Tailgating or flashing lights continuously
Intentionally slamming on brakes when driving in front of another car
Dangerously changing lanes
Cutting off other drivers on the road
Honking the horn frequently at other drivers
Using rude or profane hand gestures
Screaming and cursing at other drivers
How Can You Avoid a Car Accident with an Aggressive Driver?
You must drive proactively on all roadways. No matter how aggressive another driver is behaving, never engage in their behavior.
A driver who is engaging in aggressive road rage behavior is likely to never back down, especially if you engage in the confrontation. Always allow the aggressive driver to pass.
If you feel unsafe, leave the roadway, but never park on the side of the road. Make sure you travel to a safe public place. If you are followed, call 911 immediately.
Unfortunately, not all acts of road rage can be avoided. Incidences of road rage often result in hit-and-run accidents. If you become the victim of an accident, gathering information is important.
If safe to do so and possible, get the driver’s tag number. If there are any eyewitnesses, get their full contact information. Report the make, model, and color of the car to the police.
