Aggressive Driving Car AccidentOne minute, you could be peacefully driving along an open stretch of road when another car unexpectedly races up from behind. To make you move out of the way, the driver starts flashing his high beams and frantically beeping the horn. If you are lucky, maybe you can promptly change lanes and allow them to speed by. Otherwise, you may be forced to endure obscene gestures and other forms of annoyance. Either way, you have just become a victim of aggressive driving. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), aggressive driving is operating a vehicle in a manner that endangers or is likely to cause danger to people or property. Aggressive drivers disregard the safety of other motorists by driving unlawfully. Deliberately accelerating at a yellow light, speeding, swerving, making illegal turns, erratic driving, tailgating, unsafe lane changes, and wrongly assuming the right-of-way are all considered types of aggressive driving. Such misconduct behind the wheel can drastically heighten the risk of severe collisions and resulting injuries, like organ damage, traumatic brain injury (TBI), permanent disability, or even total paralysis.

Aggressive drivers make roadways dangerous for everyone around them. These motorists often give little to no regard to the harm their actions can cause to themselves and others. Based on NHTSA’s Fatal Accident Reporting System, aggressive driving contributed to 56% of fatal collisions that occurred within four years. Of all detrimental driving behaviors, in a recent year, excessive speeding was the leading factor connected to fatal accidents. Getting into any kind of accident can be a devastating ordeal, especially if you feel like the other driver drove recklessly. If you were injured by someone driving antagonistically, it is crucial to discuss your case with a well-informed personal injury lawyer.

Defending Yourself Against Aggressive Drivers

A recent study conducted by AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety revealed that almost 80% of motorists exhibited considerable aggression, anger, or even road rage at least once in the past year. Being confronted by aggressive drivers is an unfortunate part of getting behind the wheel. Since it is impossible to control others on the road, always remember to buckle your seatbelt. If you ever encounter a hostile driver, you should always:

  1. Try to stay calm and collected;
  2. Make an effort to ignore his or her rude behavior;
  3. Determine whether you are doing something wrong to aggravate the driver and, if required, correct your behavior;
  4. If someone is tailgating you, when it is safe to do so, move over and let them pass;
  5. Avoid making eye contact with the other driver;
  6. Never make obscene gestures;
  7. Do not follow anyone too closely;
  8. Avoid using your horn; even a courteous honk can be easily misconstrued;
  9. If the situation escalates, pull over into a rest stop or parking lot and take a few moments to regain your composure;
  10. If you feel threatened, call the police.

Hostile motorists frequently cost other innocent drivers, motorcyclists, and pedestrians their lives. Taking the above protective measures can lower your risk of becoming the victim of a brutal accident.
