Beware Aggressive Drivers
The roadways and highways exist for the sake of use by all licensed motorists, though there may have been times when you encountered a driver who seemed to believe that it was more his or hers than yours. As people spend an increasingly greater portion of their time in cars and trucks to carry about the course of their daily routines and responsibilities, it is not uncommon for one to become agitated by anything that further extends the commute. The resulting aggravation can lead to “road rage”, an informal way of referring to aggressive behaviors that sometimes translate into physical violence.
If you have been hurt in a motor vehicle accident that was caused by a motorist who was driving aggressively, you may be able to pursue legal action. The financial compensation that you might gain from a successful lawsuit typically exceeds that which an insurance settlement would be likely to grant you.

Aggressive Driving Behaviors
There may be times on the roadway when it appears as if everyone has decided that the traffic laws suddenly do not apply to them, which can make it difficult to distinguish the signs of aggressive driving. The following represent some driving behaviors that could possibly indicate unacceptably aggressive driving:
- Tailgating (following too closely behind another vehicle)
- Frequent lane changes
- Undertaking (passing in the right lanes)
- Rapid or erratic acceleration and braking
- Failure to indicate lane changes
- Intentionally slowing to impede the progress of another vehicle
- Pulling alongside to effectively “box in” another vehicle
You deserve to be fairly compensated for your injuries if you have been the victim of an aggressive driver. Contact the Stevens Point car accident lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. ®, at 800-242-2874 for more information.
