    Road rage, an intense form of aggressive driving, involves a driver that becomes so enraged with a driving incident that he or she reacts violently with threatening behavior or physical confrontation. Road rage is a criminal offense under Illinois law.

    Road rage and other forms of aggressive driving can include:

    • Frequent or reckless lane changes
    • Failing to signal lane changes or turns
    • Tailgating (i.e. following too closely)
    • Failing to yield right of way
    • Needlessly flashing headlights
    • Making obscene gestures while driving
    • Obstructing other vehicles
    • Physical or verbal threats and/or abuse

    Road rage accidents are frequently caused because drivers overreact to careless or inconsiderate driving errors made by other drivers. It is important to remember to stay calm to avoid escalating the situation. If you are confronted by a driver with road rage, pull over and stay in your car. If you feel threatened, you should contact the police immediately.

    How Long After a Car Accident Can You Claim an Injury?

    Victims typically have two years from the date of the accident to file a car accident lawsuit or claim for their injuries. Illinois is on the list of “fault” states. When a car accident is caused by the negligence of another driver, victims may seek compensation against that party for any financial and emotional costs of the injuries they sustained.
