With what may have felt like a crazy winter to many people in Georgia, spring has finally begun to arrive. This often encourages more people to be outside and enjoying the temperate weather before the heat and humidity of summer sets in. While this can be good for people's health, especially if they are active when outside, it can also be dangerous to their health when they must be on roads or sidewalks next to vehicles.
For residents in Georgia, the tragedy associated with many motor vehicle accidents can be hard to accept. Too often, innocent people end up spending the rest of their lives dealing with injuries or disabilities that forever changed the course of their lives because of some reckless choice made by another driver. In other situations, friends and family members are forced to work through the loss of a loved one due to the negligent actions of another person.
If you are like many other drivers, you may get frustrated when stuck in traffic or struggling to get to work on time. Your anger may settle anywhere from mild to infuriated and may rise from slightly frustrated to enraged in a matter of minutes. Problems occur, however, when angry motorists engage in dangerous driving habits that threaten other motorists and people on the road. Road rage is a serious problem in the United States, as the National Safety Council reports one in three people admit to engaging in aggressive driving behaviors. It is crucial that you are on the lookout for these behaviors, so you can keep yourself safe on the road and possibly avoid becoming the victim of a car accident.
