Sacramento Auto Accidents and Aggressive DrivingAggressive driving is the primary cause of tens of thousands of accidents on the highways and other roadways of California each year. In our beautiful state’s larger cities, such as Sacramento, auto accidents caused by aggressive driving are responsible for altogether too many needless injuries and deaths.

As a proud Californian and highly experienced personal injury attorney, Larry S. Buckley is appalled by the fact that so many innocent victims and their families have to endure physical, emotional, psychological, and financial hardships as a result of other drivers’ negligent or deliberately wrongful behaviors. He has devoted his legal career to fighting for the rights of those who have been wronged through acts of negligence, helping them to obtain compensation for their losses and expenses. If you or a member of your family has been injured in an accident caused by reckless driving, or if you have lost a loved one in such an accident, Larry S. Buckley can help you, too.

What Constitutes Aggressive Driving?

Many people think that “aggressive driving” and “road rage” are synonymous phrases. However, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), aggressive driving can be defined as any instance in which “an individual commits a combination of moving traffic offenses so as to endanger other persons or property.” In fact, most drivers witness actions that could be classified as aggressive driving every day they are on the road, and many drivers have engaged in aggressive driving themselves, even if they have never been involved in accidents as a result. These drivers should consider themselves lucky.

The following acts all fall under the umbrella of “aggressive driving,” and auto accident attorney Larry S. Buckley has successfully handled personal injury claims arising from accidents caused by each one:

  • Speeding
  • Unsafe lane changes and turns
  • Frequent lane changes (“weaving in and out of traffic”)
  • Tailgating
  • Failure to obey traffic lights and signs (e.g., stop signs)
  • Street racing
  • Cutting off other vehicles
  • Failure to yield when legally obligated to do so
  • Failure to use turn signals when appropriate
  • Hitting brakes when another driver follows too closely
  • Flashing a vehicle’s bright lights while behind drivers or facing oncoming traffic
  • Preventing other drivers from making lane changes or legally passing by speeding up, slowing down, or boxing them in
  • Yelling at other drivers
  • Making rude gestures while driving
