Car accidents are complex events, often involving multiple factors. Unfortunately, in too many of these cases, it is the reckless and aggressive driving behaviors of others that are ultimately to blame. Being impatient or in a hurry and acting out toward other drivers increases the risk of serious accidents and injuries for everyone on the road.
According to crash facts from the Illinois Department of Transportation (DOT), more than 300,000 car accidents happen in our state each year, with more than 14,000 occurring in Will County alone. These prove serious and potentially life threatening for tens of thousands of drivers and passengers, and aggressive driving is often the underlying cause. Common types of aggressive driving behaviors include:
While you cannot control the behavior of other drivers, there are steps you can take to protect yourself against aggressive driving accidents.

Great attorney sure did a fantastic job on my divorce HIGHLY RECOMMEND
As it was a long road, the outcome was what it should have been. 50/50 should be the starting point of a divorce when kids are involved, not something parents should have to fight for. Thanks Sandy & Roy for everything!
There is not enough space to accurately give justice to the gratefulness I have for Mr. Sabuco and his staff. So let me just say – I am grateful for the small things, big things and everything in between.
