South Carolina Aggressive Driving Accident Lawyer
South Carolina had the highest aggressive driving death rate in the nation, according to a report from the Surface Transportation Policy Partnership. The report found that South Carolina had 15.1 deaths related to aggressive driving for every 100,000 people.
More than a decade after that study, South Carolina still has a major problem with aggressive driving. In fact, the problem remains so severe that the South Carolina Department of Transportation in recent years set aside $1.5 billion to pay state troopers to work overtime to crack down on aggressive driving.
Aggressive driving refers to a combination of dangerous driving behaviors, all of which significantly increase the risk of a car accident. Aggressive drivers put themselves and others at serious risk of injury. Aggressive driving can even cause fatal wrecks. Driving in an aggressive manner is irresponsible and risky, and drivers who engage in this type of negligent behavior must be held accountable.
