Aggressive driving can potentially turn an ordinary automobile into a dangerous vehicle. If a driver has forcefully honked their horn at you, flashed their headlights to purposely blind you, closely tailgated you, cut you off without signaling, or slammed on their brakes right in front of you, then you have been involved in an aggressive driving case.
Other examples of aggressive driving include:
- Verbal insults
- Obscene gestures
- Failure to yield
- Swerving in and out of lanes
- Passing illegally, using the should of the road
- Reckless driving
- Purposely blocking vehicles
Drivers who decide to drive recklessly are considered negligent, which gives you reasonable grounds to pursue legal action under Texas law if you were in an accident because of their actions. These kinds of behaviors can lead to serious accidents, resulting in injuries and even death.
