Causes Of Car Accidents

  • Aggressive driving
  • Road rage
  • Negligence
  • Speeding
  • Recklessness
  • Fatigue or falling sleep behind the wheel
  • Substance abuse
  • DUI or drunk driving

The Scourge Of Road Rage

Road rage is a serious issue on our roads. The term is used to refer to violent behavior by a driver which can cause accidents and incidents on roadways. Some people call it an extreme case of aggressive driving, but in some jurisdictions there may be a legal difference between the two charges.

Road rage is caused primarily by overcrowding on road systems that were not designed for modern levels of traffic, thus forcing a driver to set his speed not to his own expectation but rather to that of the prevailing traffic around him. Road rage can cause serious injuries and deadly accidents.
