Most of the time, Sarasota auto accidents occur due to a driver’s carelessness or negligence. However, sometimes collisions occur because of a driver’s aggression. Although a lot of attention has been placed on the dangers of distracted driving, aggressive driving is also a huge safety concern facing Florida motorists.
Aggressive drivers discard basic courtesy and traffic rules and put themselves first. In fact, these types of drivers think they have the right-of-way in every situation and display a conscious disregard for other drivers on the road.
When drivers perform a combination of illegal and dangerous driving habits—showing a complete disregard for the safety of others—they are considered aggressive drivers. Unfortunately, aggressive drivers aren’t just selfish; they are dangerous too. When a driver aggressively changes lanes into the path of another vehicle, the results can be catastrophic.
Drivers who deliberately make dangerous maneuvers, get impatient with other drivers, or fail to follow basic traffic safety cause serious Sarasota auto accidents. This is reflected in the crash statistics that continue to show traffic injuries and fatalities related to speed and other unsafe driving behaviors.
