Reckless Driving in Heavy Traffic

Traffic jams can be very frustrating, especially if you end up sitting in stop-and-go traffic while you are trying to get to work or pick your kids up from school on time. Unfortunately, heavy traffic tends to bring out aggressive and reckless driving behaviors in some people who are usually good drivers. The stresses of being stuck on a congested highway can lead a driver to take dangerous and negligent measures to try to lessen the delays posed by traffic.

When a driver believes he is an exception to the rules of the road and behaves negligently in order to avoid traffic jams, he greatly increases the chances of causing a serious, and even deadly, car accident. If a negligent or reckless driver causes a wreck, he should be held liable for his actions, and the experienced Waukesha personal injury lawyers of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C.® can help you receive the compensation you deserve.

Spotting a Reckless Driver

The best way to avoid getting in a wreck with a negligent driver is to avoid them altogether when possible. When in heavy traffic, drivers should always be on the look-out for reckless drivers displaying the following behaviors:

  • Weaving or erratically changing lanes
  • Tailgating
  • Frequently slamming on the brakes
  • Honking excessively
  • Driving in the shoulder
  • Making rude gestures
