Drivers who are aggressive and lose their temper pose a real threat and do cause injuries and fatalities each year.

The news over the past few years has been filled with stories from across the country of people who intentionally have driven into groups of people or who have intentionally hit others with their car. Most recently, such an event took place at a holiday parade in Waukesha, Wisconsin and tragically some victims of the attack are still losing their lives due to their injuries.

Most of us consider car collisions in Homestead and across Florida to be caused by driver error, mechanical failure, and other issues. While it is certainly true these are major contributors to and causes of traffic accidents, studies have also shown that our moods can have a significant impact on our risk of car accidents.

A bad mood, for example, can lead to road rage. Uncontrollable anger can lead to speeding, aggressive driving, weaving in and out of lanes, and other dangerous behaviors which can lead to a collision, especially if you’re driving on busy city streets. In addition, road rage can lead to confrontations with other drivers, which can lead to collisions.

Traffic congestion happens in Miami, Hollywood, and across South Florida. Older roads, heavy reliance on traffic, bad weather, construction, and lots of residents and tourists can all contribute to traffic.

Congestion on the roads does not just lead to delays and frustration. It can also cause car accidents and even chain-reaction car collisions. When people are in a rush, they may get impatient and drive too close. Many Miami rear-end shunt collisions happen this way. Heavy traffic can also cause instances of road rage, which itself can lead to injuries.

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
