What is aggressive driving and road rage?

There is a subtle difference between aggressive driving and road rage, but both are intertwined. Aggressive driving on its own doesn't always result in road rage, but it can certainly fuel it.

Aggressive driving often includes:

  • Excessive speeding
  • Cutting off other drivers
  • Erratically changing lanes
  • Running traffic lights and signals
  • Weaving in and out of traffic
  • Tailgating
  • Passing in areas where it is illegal to pass

Road rage often includes:

  • Yelling
  • Honking
  • Making rude gestures
  • Chasing and harassing other drivers
  • Purposely ramming other vehicles
  • Trying to run other drivers off the road
  • Getting out of a vehicle to confront another driver

Incidents involving aggressive driving and road rage can often escalate and turn deadly. That's why it's best to stay calm, avoid making eye contact and not engage an aggressive driver.

    If your injury was caused by aggressive driving and road rage, the negligent driver should be held accountable for his or her actions. If you're able to capture the incident on camera or take photos of the crash scene, this evidence can be used to help you build a solid claim. Additional evidence, such as witness statements and a detailed police report, can be used by an experienced auto accident attorney in Jacksonville to prove that your accident was attributed to negligence.

    If the other driver's insurance company has any questions, anything you tell them can later be used to downplay or deny your claim. Even if it has been proven that the other driver was at fault, his or her insurance company will still go to great lengths to keep their costs down. Let us handle them so you can focus on recovery.
