Common Aggressive Driving Behaviors (and How They Cause Injuries)By Pyle Law, March 17 2020 8:36 pm
Aggressive driving is dangerous driving, and aggressive drivers are among the most dangerous drivers on our roadways. While you may not know how best to describe an aggressive driver, we all know one when we see one. It’s always in your best interest to steer clear of aggressive drivers in your midst. If an aggressive driver leaves you injured, contact an experienced Kansas personal injury attorney today.
While you can probably spot an aggressive driver a mile away, the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) provides us with a succinct definition. Aggressive driving is the act of engaging in more than one moving violation – that endangers others – at a time. When a driver, for example, weaves in and out of traffic at top speeds and cuts other drivers off in the process, he or she is a dangerously aggressive driver.
While aggressive drivers can engage in nearly any kind of dangerous driving behaviors, there are certain driving activities that are most closely associated with aggressive driving:
Aggressive drivers are far more likely to cause dangerous traffic accidents, and because they’re also prone to speeding, the attendant injuries tend to be that much more serious.
If you’re sharing the road with an aggressive driver, give him or her all the room you possibly can. If a driver is tailgating you, attempt to move over to allow him or her to pass. If you think it’s called for, alert the authorities about the danger. Your actions could help save a life.
