Aggressive Houston drivers can cause serious accidents

Houston is known for having heavy traffic, and some of the drivers on the roads and highways can act aggressively.

There are many forms of aggressive driving, including speeding, changing lanes too quickly, following too closely behind, blaring a horn or shouting at other drivers. While we have all probably been in frustrating situations when driving, it is important to not engage in this type of behavior.

Acting this way only increases the chance that you will be involved in a serious or even fatal car accident.

What causes aggressive driving?

People drive aggressively for many different reasons. Common reasons include fatigue, stress and driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Aggressive driving is also more likely to occur after drivers have sat in heavy or delayed traffic, since they may now be behind schedule.

Being involved in an accident with an aggressive driver can cause serious damage. You may sustain major injuries and your car might be totaled.

This can lead to financial problems, including lost wages or high medical bills. However, there are ways you can handle aggressive drivers on the road.

How to act around aggressive drivers

The best thing to do is just ignore the aggressive driver as much as possible. Do not look at them or make eye contact and try to move out of their way.

Do not mirror their behavior, even though you may believe that you did not do anything wrong. If they are honking their horn at you, resist the urge to honk your horn back.

You have a right to be safe on the roads. If the aggressive driver’s behavior continues, pull over to the side of the road and call 911 to report the driver to the police.

You also have rights after being the victim of an accident involving aggressive driving. Speaking with a personal injury attorney can help you understand these rights and learn about your legal options.
