San Diego Road Rage! What to do When You are a Victim of Aggressive Driving

It’s unfortunate, but extreme aggressive driving – also known as road rage – is very common on San Diego freeways and streets.

While there is no specific “road rage” law in effect in California, a driver can be criminally charged for extremely aggressive driving if his or her behavior behind the wheel fits a certain criteria. The charges a person might face for road rage are:

  • Reckless driving.
  • Assault or assault with a deadly weapon.

Both types of charges bring serious consequences.

When you are in your vehicle and driving aggressively, your vehicle is seen as a deadly weapon. This means that if you operate your vehicle in a forceful manner that is likely to produce great bodily injury, you may be charged with this offense as a misdemeanor or a felony.

Felony assault with a deadly weapon carries with it a sentence of 2-4 years in the California State Prison system. If a person is charged with misdemeanor assault with a deadly weapon he or she will face up to one year in county jail.

Road rage is not a driving offense that is as simple as a ticket. If you have been a victim of a road rage offense it it important that you call an experienced San Diego Road Rage Attorney – like Steven Elia for an immediate consultation.
