Any unsafe driving behavior, performed deliberately and with ill intention or disregard for safety, can constitute aggressive driving. Examples of aggressive driving behaviors include:
Unfortunately, many drivers on the roadway do not respect other motorists. Aggressive driving can start out as a minor issue, such as tailgating, and can escalate to causing serious damages in the form of injuries or death. According to NHTSA’s Fatal Accident Report database, 56% of deadly crashes in a five-year span were due to aggressive driving.
While you are out on the road, always stay alert and mindful of other drivers. To avoid accidents with aggressive drivers, it is important to not engage or challenge them. Try to give yourself plenty of time to get to your destination so you are not tempted to return the aggression. When you notice another vehicle speeding, darting in and out of lanes, or otherwise showing signs of aggression, it is important to do everything you can to avoid that driver. Make sure to slow down, buckle up and remain calm.
If you have been injured in an accident caused by an aggressive driver, it’s important to talk to a personal injury lawyer. Contact a member of our legal team and we will get back to you to hear your story and let you know how we can help.
