Aggressive Driving and Car Accidents

By Pacific Attorney Group  May. 8, 2012 3:10p

Aggressive driving is a term which everyone has heard. No precise or legal definition of this exists though the word "aggressive" connotes what type of attitude is involved. According to various definitions, aggressive generally means inclined towards hostile behavior, which is what an aggressive driver engages in, whether as a result of a perceived slight or wrong on the part of other drivers or for reasons only the aggressive driver can offer. Many situations could result in aggressive driving, such as having just received bad news or having just been in an argument with one's partner, co-worker, a friend, or family member. Whatever the reasons, the aggressive driver takes out his or her frustrations while behind the wheel of a car, which is a dangerous proposition.

Aggressive driving behaviors include deliberate actions, such as speeding or driving too fast in relationship to the current road or weather conditions, frequent and sudden lane changes, driving too close behind other vehicles, improper passing, such as passing on a shoulder, failing to signal, or cutting off another driver, flashing your lights at other drivers, and giving rude or hostile gestures to or screaming at other motorists. Needless to say, aggressive driving can lead to accidents because such drivers are not taking the required care to ensure the safety of others with whom they share the highway.
