Signs of Aggressive Driving
Anxious drivers and tense road conditions, such as heavy traffic, often bring out the worst in motorists. As a consequence of their frustration and inability to meaningfully change their circumstances, some individuals engage in aggressive driving behaviors which pose a threat to the safety of others on the roadway. Unpredictable driving endangers everyone on the road and is likely to cause accidents which could otherwise have been avoided.
It is important for drivers to be alert for signs of aggressive driving in others so that they can limit the likelihood of being targeted for retribution or becoming involved in a collision. The following are some signs of aggressive driving:
- Disregard for the speed limit
- Weaving through lanes
- Cutting off other cars
- Yelling at other drivers, either inside the car or out of the windows
- Excessive use of the horn and/or bright headlights
- Speeding up to make it through a light
- Braking heavily to “warn” cars that are following closely
Unfortunately, despite one’s best efforts to drive safely while respecting others on the roadway, some actions of aggressive drivers make it impossible to avoid an accident. When you are harmed in such a collision, you may be entitled to pursue financial compensation through a civil lawsuit.
