We hear a lot about the dangers of driving while under the influence of drink or drugs, or in a car that is not roadworthy. However we don’t tend to hear much about driving angry and yet this can potentially be just as big a danger.
You are no doubt familiar with road rage and driving angry is a major part of this. If you get behind the wheel of your car while you are feeling angry, you are much more likely to drive more aggressively, even if you are normally a sedate driver. You are also likely to react more aggressively if someone else does something to annoy you. This can all lead to potentially dangerous results, especially if it leads to an accident. You and other road users could be in danger from another driver who is driving angry – and you too may be the cause.
Considering a compensation claim after a road accident
Road rage can cause all kinds of problems on the roads. If you have a road accident of any kind, no matter what you are driving, you should think about seeking advice concerning a potential compensation claim.
We all know accidents of all kinds have the potential to occur even in situations where every driver is safe, attentive and cautious on the roads. However, if anger is to blame for an accident, it can have devastating consequences. If you have evidence that negligence on the part of a particular driver was to blame for an accident, you may be able to seek compensation.
