The statistics on road rage will surprise you. In a study done by AAA, 80% of drivers have admitted to being angry and aggressive driving at one point during their lifetime. The study also found that this number could be especially higher since many people do not have their car accidents reported to the D V. Those who are between the ages of twenty and forty years of age are more likely to show signs of road rage. Males are more likely than females to get involved in road rage incidents.

What is road rage?

Road rage is a form of behavior from drivers behind-the-wheel where they get aggressively angry at other drivers on the road. Road rage is especially common in the state of California. Because road rage is accompanied with anger and frustration, accidents could be very severe, and could cause complicated and life-threatening injuries.

What are examples of road rage?

Essentially anybody could show signs of road rage. Road rage is not necessarily tied to a specific age group or to a specific driver. Examples of road rage include:

  • Tailgating: tailgating is a form of aggressive behavior where a vehicle gets too close to another vehicle from the back. This means that a rear end collision is very likely to happen in the case that the first car brakes abruptly.

  • Constantly braking: a vehicle that is constantly braking and coming to a stop when they shouldn’t is a form of road rage.

  • Honking: honking could be considered very innocent compared to other road rage behaviors. But honking can actually act as a distraction, and cause other drivers to end up in an accident when they look away and towards the area where the honking came from.

  • High beams: a driver who is angry may flash their high beams onto other oncoming vehicles. This could get very distracting, especially during nighttime.

  • Yelling: the most common example of road rage is yelling and cursing at other drivers. This could be a very dangerous situation for other drivers, especially when stopped at a red light.

  • Fighting: in very rare circumstances, those with road rage exit their vehicle and try to block the other vehicle from exiting the area. They will try to physically confront other vehicles.

  • Switching lanes: switching lanes without using signals and switching in a short amount of time could count as an example of road rage. This could be especially dangerous and cause sideswipe accidents.

Above are just some examples of road rage. There are several other signs that could point to road rage. If you have been involved in an accident that included any of these signs or examples, give us a call today to discuss how you can hold the party responsible.

What should I do if another driver is showing signs of road rage?

The best advice you can take from our attorneys in regards to road rage is to simply stay away from it. You should do everything you can to make sure you stay away from an angry driver. You don’t necessarily know what the other driver may be thinking, and they may be so angry enough as to cause an accident on purpose. Always be alert when behind the wheel of a vehicle, and make sure that you are constantly driving at a safe speed.

When should I file my road rage car accident claim?

In California, you could have the other driver’s license suspended if they caused the accident from their road rage. For more information on how to file the necessary paperwork, call us today.

How much do our road rage car accident attorneys cost?

Our car accident attorneys work on a contingency fee basis. A contingency fee is in agreement with our clients where we do not get paid up front. This could be very relieving and refreshing to our clients. We only get paid once we get compensated for you. If we win compensation for you, then we will take a small percentage of the fees. For more information on what contingency fee agreements are, contact us today.
