Is Your Behavior Behind The Wheel Putting You At Risk For A Road Rage Accident?

A recent study released by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety states that almost 80 percent of drivers admit to feeling aggression, anger, or road rage at least once in the past year. Unfortunately, road rage is not limited to simply yelling or cussing at another driver. Roughly eight million drivers in this country have exhibited extreme episodes of road rage including ramming another car or following another driver to confront him or her outside of the vehicle. Data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) shows that the rate of fatalities from accidents involving road rage increased by almost tenfold from 2004 to 2013. In 2013, 247 people died in traffic accidents caused by road rage. Aggressive driving is a serious problem throughout the United States. What can you do if you are injured by an aggressive driver?
