Collecting Evidence for Road Rage Accidents
When people are running late for job interviews, for instance, and other drivers cut them off or they get stuck in traffic, they may start yelling or honking in anger. Others may even get out of their vehicles for a full confrontation.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), road rage is a form of aggressive driving that may include violent, threatening, or angry behavior. Some signs of road rage may include:
- Dangerously or frequently changing lanes
- Constant honking
- Yelling at other drivers
- Slamming on brakes intentionally
- Sudden deceleration or acceleration
- Making profane, rude, insulting, or lewd hand gestures to other drivers
- Cutting off other motorists
- And more
Many of these actions are violations of traffic laws, and in Georgia, both reckless driving and aggressive driving are their own types of offenses. However, in a personal injury case, it may not be necessary for you to prove that the other driver had road rage. Instead, Bader Scott Injury Lawyers may be able to establish the responsible party’s liability with evidence that they acted negligently and violated a traffic law, such as:
- Failure to yield
- Illegal lane change
- Illegal turn
- Running a red light or stop sign
- And more

How to Respond to Drivers With Road Rage
If you encounter a motorist who seems angry and dangerous to other road users, you may not know what to do. Although another driver’s road rage may be annoying to deal with, it may be best if you focused on preventing further escalation of the problem. To do so, you may wish to:
- Keep calm and avoid conflict
- Avoid eye contact with the aggressive driver
- Allow the aggressive motorist to pass
- Avoid using inflammatory gestures to prevent heightening tempers
- Report the road rage driving incident to the law enforcement officers
Georgia Statute of Limitations
In Georgia, victims generally have two years from the date of their accident to file a personal injury lawsuit, per O.C.G.A. § 9-3-33. Waiting longer than this to take legal action could mean that your case gets dismissed.
