The person who hit my car was angry at me after the crash! Does this count as road rage?

It’s possible. Even drivers who cause Texas car wrecks are shaken and scared after a crash—and some even try to cover their guilt by becoming angry.

Here are a few surprising facts about Texas road rage accidents:

  • Studies have shown that road rage is more likely to occur during rush hour. This may be because people are in a hurry to get home, are irritable because they are tired, or are still focused on something stressful that happened at work. 
  • More road rage accidents occur on Fridays than any other day of the week.
  • Many road-rage drivers are likely to be under the influence of drugs or alcohol—both of which have been shown to make aggressive actions worse.

It is important to remember that road rage is a crime. Whether a driver caused a collision or not, if an aggressive driver did physical damage to you or your vehicle, he must be held accountable for his actions.
