Last month footage surfaced of a FedEx driver in New Jersey swerving into a school bus in a fit of rage. According to witnesses the school bus illegally passed the FedEx driver, which apparently caused the FedEx driver’s treacherous behavior.
Luckily no one was hurt in the incident, and both drivers were later fired. Both drivers put themselves and others in jeopardy by making rash decisions. The FedEx driver is now facing criminal charges.
Road rage is extremely dangerous and alarmingly common. Examples of road rage include: purposefully tailgating, honking to show annoyance or anger and cutting off another vehicle.
If you are behind the wheel and become a victim of road rage do not react or retaliate, instead proceed with caution and abide by posted traffic laws. If you’re injured in a car crash because of another driver’s road rage contact a personal injury attorney as soon as possible to discuss your options.
