How to spot the signs of road rage

If you are like many other Illinois drivers, you are used to sharing the road with a multitude of motorists, all rushing to get to their destination. At some point in time, you may have gotten irritated with other drivers on the road, especially if you were late to work or an appointment. Road rage is common on Illinois roadways and on roads across the United States. In fact, AAA reported that nearly 80% of drivers have admitted to driving aggressively within the last year. The problem lies in the fact that aggressive driving can be deadly. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported that 56% of fatal motor vehicle accidents were the result of excessive speeding, which is one type of aggressive driving behavior.

It is important to know how to spot the signs of an aggressive driver so that you can minimize your risk of becoming involved in an accident. These hazardous driving behaviors include the following:

  • Erratic lane changing and cutting off other vehicles

  • Excessive horn honking, yelling expletives or giving obscene hand gestures

  • Following too closely or tailgating

  • Pulling out in front of cars and failing to yield to others’ right of way

  • Failing to signal or adhere to traffic lights or signs

  • Racing or speeding

Aggressive drivers may make improper turns or pass other vehicles where they are prohibited to do so. If you spot an aggressive driver, do not engage with them. Simply contact law enforcement and alert them to the situation so they can take care of it.

  2. "Could not have made a better choice"

    We found Mark [Mathys] through the web after an auto accident in October 2011. While selecting someone you don't know to represent you can be a gamble, we could not have made a better choice....
    - Dave

  3. "Very satisfied"

    Mark [Mathys] is very professional. He responds almost immediately, via email, to any question, comment or concern I have and if he is not able to respond right away, he will let me know. I have been very satisfied with Mark so far and I am happy to be his client.
    -Jennifer

  4. "Easy to talk to"

    Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid were very professional and easy to talk to. Prior to working with them, my wife and I had no real experience with the legal system beyond a house closing, yet Mr. Mathys and Mr. Schneid explained the whole process to us very well. I knew that whenever I had a concern about our case or the legal system in general I could call their office or send an email and receive answers the same day... -Larry

  5. "Provided very wise advice"

    I've dealt with attorneys on a variety of issues, almost all of them since leaving college and entering the workplace. Mr. Mathys was the first attorney I had any real experience with, and I was impressed then and remain so. He provided very wise advice and always kept me informed. In the end, he delivered a favorable result. I recommend him highly.

    Mark [Schneid] is an excellent and skilled attorney and demonstrated in-depth knowledge of the law when he helped settle my dog bite lawsuit resulting from a traumatic incident. He explained what was needed of me and how I should handle the situation in a professional manner.
    - Karen K.

  7. "They went to bat for me"

    Not long ago I was involved in a car accident where I was hit by a gravel truck at an intersection. After I called Mathys & Schneid, even though I didn't have a very large case, they made me feel like I was one of their most important cases. They went to bat for me with the trucking company's insurance and got me a settlement. I would definitely recommend them to my family and friends. -Dan H.
