How to Avoid Aggressive Drivers in California

According to data collected by the American Automobile Association, road rage is a shockingly common occurrence. One particular survey even revealed that almost 80% of all drivers have, at one time or another, shown aggression or anger to a consequential degree while they were behind the wheel just this past year. Even more alarming is that up to eight million drivers have let their frustrations reach the point of actually engaging in risky behaviors like confronting another motorist or even deliberately ramming another vehicle.

If you or someone that you love has been injured in an auto accident that caused by an aggressive driver, then it is imperative that you seek legal representation as soon as possible. A qualified Utah personal injury attorney will be able to help you navigate the tricky legal process of filing a lawsuit, and be able to help you receive financial compensation for any losses that you may have suffered, such as hospital bills, doctor visits, missed time from work, and pain and suffering.

How to Avoid Accidents Caused by Aggressive Driving

Sitting in gridlocked, bumper-to-bumper traffic with literally no end in sight is not anyone’s idea of a good time. Traffic jams like this are, however, unfortunately unavoidable, especially with the ever-growing number of motorists that are on the road each year. Becoming frustrated and/or agitated can easily affect any driver’s ability to stay in control by causing them to engage in dangerous behaviors such as speeding, changing lanes without signaling, and tailgating other drivers. All of these behaviors have been known to cause accidents.

If you are someone who is predisposed towards being aggressive behind the wheel, or if you find yourself sharing the roadway with an aggressive driver, which is statistically likely to occur, there are things that you can do in an effort to avoid any road rage themed accidents such as letting a driver who is tailgating you to pass by simply changing lanes, as opposed to slamming on your brakes. If you are inclined towards being angry when you are behind the wheel try listening to some music or an audiobook or podcast that you find soothing.

How to Tell if You Are the Aggressive Driver

You might not want to admit it, but sometimes the problem is you. If you routinely exhibit any of these behaviors, I’ve got news for you…

  • You honk at other drivers and tailgate in an effort to get them to speed up
  • The speed limit is everyone else’s problem
  • You aggressively overtake other vehicles
  • You make rude gestures and yell at other drivers to show them how mad they made you
