What Is Aggressive Driving in Texas?

If someone's aggressive driving caused your accident, it may be possible to hold them accountable in Texas courts. Aggressive driving has been defined in different ways in different states and courts. Generally, it is the operation of a motor vehicle in a way that endangers people or their property.

There are many different actions that can be considered aggressive driving, including:

  • Speeding
  • Changing lanes without signaling
  • Making rude gestures
  • Tailgating

What Is Reckless Driving?

In reckless driving, the driver does not intend to cause harm, but still sees the possibility of harm, taking the risk anyway. Recklessness involves a greater degree of fault than negligence but a lesser degree of fault than intentional wrongdoing.

Many people talk about reckless driving in terms of "road rage" or other intentional actions that drivers use to put other drivers at risk. To learn more about aggressive or reckless driving and how it may impact your personal injury claim, contact the San Antonio car accident attorneys at The Law Offices of Tyler & Peery.
