Aggressive Driving & Car Accidents

Dangers Associated with Aggressive Driving

Perhaps because Americans spend so much time behind the wheel, or maybe because they underestimate cars' capability for causing extensive damage, far too many motorists neglect their duty to keep others on the roads safe from preventable harm by driving aggressively. As defined by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), aggressive driving involves a combination of moving traffic violations that pose imminent danger to property and others on the roads. While not a new problem, there are enough statistics to confirm that aggressive driving has become increasingly prevalent throughout the country. Highly negligent and extremely dangerous, aggressive driving poses needless risks to others' safety. Motorists who commit such offenses must be held fully liable for the damages they cause victims.

At Nagle & Associates, Attorney Carl Nagle and his team of North Carolina auto accident attorneys have seen the devastating consequences of aggressive driving and the evolving ways in which law enforcement and the judicial system have responded to this serious problem. In many states throughout the nation, including North Carolina, traffic offenses are punishable by fines and license repercussions. Accumulating too many violations or committing exceedingly dangerous acts often results in heightened penalties. Some common examples of aggressive or reckless driving include:

  • Driving at excessive speeds
  • Making indiscriminate and unsafe lane changes
  • Tailgating
  • Passing vehicles using highway shoulders or lanes for opposing traffic
  • Disobeying traffic signals, including failures to yield or stop

Committing these and other similar traffic offense, especially together, is a direct failure of a driver's legal obligation to take reasonable measures to keep others safe. By conducting thorough investigations, which may include working with specialists and witnesses, Attorney Nagle can highlight the offenses another driver committed prior to causing your accident. When proof is established clearly and convincingly, he will have the foundation needed to effectively establish another driver's liability. As these matters can be challenging, and because insurance companies are quick to deflect allegations of aggressive driving, working with experienced auto accident attorneys who know how to craft a convincing case should be your top priority.
