As Road Rage Incidents Climb, So Does the Need for a Good Personal Injury Lawyer

SUV flipped over

Road rage incidents are on the rise in New York City and across the Empire State. A stagnated economy, low employment opportunities, rising prices, overcrowding, traffic congestion and multiple other forms of stress have created a vast number of angry and aggressive motor vehicle operators that take out their frustrations using their vehicles as weapons, or by causing unnecessary accidents due to out-of-control behavior.

Reuters conducted a poll in 2009 which revealed that New York was ranked the highest road rage state in the nation. Participants said they witnessed more aggressive honking of horns, tailgating, bad hand gestures, high speed and other forms of road rage in New York than anywhere else. American Auto Association data appears to back up the rising road rage trend which shows that over 50 percent of auto accident fatalities involve hot-headed, aggressive drivers that tend to take the lives of other drivers as well as pedestrians, motorcyclists and bicyclists.

When it comes to the law, every driver on New York roads is responsible for their behavior and driving performance.
