Reckless Conduct & Road Rage

Reckless Conduct causes accidents and Road Rage does as well.

In Texas, there are legal standards which apply when there is an auto or tuck accident. Those laws of course also apply in Corpus Christi. When a driver is legally “reckless” he or she is someone who drives their vehicle with "willful and wanton disregard" for basic rights and basic wellbeing of other people. The driver who hit you can be legally “reckless,” as an example, if she or he drives in a harassing or threatening way because of "road rage" and if this rage causes your accident. There is a legal concept, known to experienced auto lawyers such as ours, behind “Road Rage.” The law defines Road Rage as "an assault with a motor vehicle or other dangerous weapon by the operator or passenger of another motor vehicle or an assault precipitated by an incident that occurred on a roadway." Law Enforcement Agencies across Texas, including all of those who work in Corpus Christi, have renewed their efforts to spot, identify and issue penalties to aggressive drivers. This is defined as those who tailgate, speed, jump lanes and drive in other dangerous ways.
