Programs Aim to Reduce South Miami Truck Accidents Caused by Aggressive Driving

In November of this year, the Florida Highway Patrol and other agencies launched TACT (Ticketing Aggressive Cars and Trucks), an initiative aimed at reducing Florida traffic accidents caused by aggressive drivers. According to authorities, aggressive driving is a leading cause of South Miami car accidents and truck accidents. When drivers are aggressive, they’re more likely to make mistakes and more likely to take risks, which can lead to accidents and serious injury. There are many things that can be done to help prevent aggressive driving:

1) Take responsibility and avoid driving when you are emotional. Emotional driving can be just as dangerous as distracted driving and can also lead to South Miami truck accidents and car accidents. When you are emotional, your full focus is not on the road and you’re more likely to make mistakes as well as to drive aggressively. If you find yourself emotional or angry and want to drive off, take a walk instead, take a few deep breaths and learn to relax yourself before you hop in the car.

2) Be aware of the risk factors of aggressive driving. We all have triggers that make us angry. Learn to recognize what makes you angry and avoid driving immediately afterwards.

3) Learn to recognize symptoms of anger before you get in the car and learn to diffuse them. Many people drive aggressively because they do not realize that they are at risk or do not realize that they are driving aggressively. If you are speeding, cutting other drivers off, yelling at other drivers, making aggressive hand gestures, and are filled with anger as you are driving, you’re probably an aggressive driver and you may be suffering from road rage. You should pull over and calm down before you continue to drive. If you feel angry and feel like hitting something, yelling, or driving quickly, do not get in the car. Learn to calm yourself before you drive.

4) Report aggressive drivers. Drivers who are aggressive on the road tend to drive aggressively repeatedly. If you see someone who is weaving, making offensive gestures, or seems to be in the throes of road rage, report them.

5) Learn to manage your anger if it is an issue. If you have trouble controlling your temper or your emotions and it is affecting your driving ability or your life, consult a professional. Anger management classes can make you a better driver, can make you calmer, and can improve the quality of your life.

I had a lawyer on another case and I never spoke to the lawyer and I hated that I never knew what was going on in my case. Mr. Flaxman was in constant communication with me, explained everything to me, and his staff was really great too. My phone calls were always returned immediately. It was refreshing to be able to speak to my attorney personally. I would HIGHLY recommend Mr. Flaxman as an attorney to anyone who has been in an accident. Gloria
