Aggressive driving is one of the common causes of car accidents. It consists of a combination of traffic offenses that endanger persons or property on the roads of Florida. Many of these cause injuries to innocent people. We can help.
As of 2015, the Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) reported that 15 state legislatures have addressed aggressive driving, and 11 states have passed legislation defining the actions that constitute aggressive driving. Florida is one of them.
Aggressive driving includes the following offenses:
- Traveling too fast for conditions.
- Unsafe lane changes.
- Failure to obey traffic signals (running red lights).
- Passing on the right outside of normal traffic lanes.
- Following too closely (tailgating).
- Failure to yield right-of-way.
- Failure to signal.
- Failure to stop or yield at signs.
Speeding alone is a major factor in approximately a third of all traffic fatalities in the U.S. Not only does speeding make an accident more likely to occur, it also makes resulting injuries more likely to be serious. The faster a vehicle is traveling, the greater the impact when it collides with something.
Aggressive drivers who weave in and out of traffic, drive too fast for conditions, fail to yield when other drivers have the right-of-way, or run stop signs and red lights endanger not only themselves, but other motorists as well. This type of driving can cause accidents and serious injuries.
