Most of us find ourselves irritated by other people’s driving, especially when their poor driving ability or decisions results in harm to ourselves and our vehicles. However, even in those incidents where we are the ones who may, through no fault of our own, cause other road users to get angry, there is little worse than unwarranted aggression.
Road rage is the sudden, sometimes violent anger, that is provoked in a motorist by the actions of another road user. This, in the past, has included everything from rude hand gestures, shouted abuse, threats of violence or assault, not to mention dangerous driving such as tailgating. Whether it is directed towards us, or we are the ones forced into road rage by another user’s poor actions, there are few emotions which have as strong an impact on our judgement.
When it comes to avoiding road rage, there are several different ways to do this. To prevent yourself from developing road rage, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) recommends that all drivers leave extra time for their journey. Another helpful tip is to just assume that other drivers are not being deliberately provocative or aggressive – in many cases, drivers may not realise that they are acting provocatively towards you, or it may be down to a simple error in judgement.
If you are the one who encounters road rage directed towards you, then the best thing you can do it avoid eye contact and either continue on your way or act in an apologetic manner. In many cases, this will defuse the situation. However, if the angry driver begins to follow you, it is best to drive towards a police station or any other busy public area.
When you are considering making a road rage injury claim, you first need to make sure that you have suffered as a result of road rage. Three of the most common road rage injury claims are:
- Physical Assault.
- Damage to Your Vehicle or Other Property.
- Psychological Intimidation, including Threats or other Aggressive Behaviour.
If you have suffered any of these issues, then you may be eligible for road rage injury compensation. The money you will receive could help you to get over the incident, either to put it behind you or to conduct necessary repair work on your vehicle. If your physical injuries are to the extent where you can’t actually work for a period of time, these funds can also be essential at helping you to get on with your life.
