Watch Out for Holiday Season Road Rage

crazy-3607408_1920We caution people against drunk driving particularly at this time of year as more drivers are on the road to see families, attend holiday parties, or go holiday shopping. The holidays are when road rage cases tend to escalate. This is often why drivers need to brace themselves for slower flowing traffic.

But during this time of year, there’s another danger to motorists, one that most South Florida already deal with daily: road rage. Road rage may intensify and become expensive quickly: stealing your independence and causing your insurance rates to skyrocket. Even more serious, it could lead to the loss of life, whether yours or that of someone else.

During the holidays, law enforcement expects road rage as there are more persons on the road who are all struggling to make it from one point or another while dealing with more congestion. What is more, the pandemic is causing more people to choose vehicular travel versus using air travel. This means that when you do hit the road, you may wish to do so with the expectation that it may take a little longer to get where you’re going, especially if you’re heading to a place like a mall.

A citation for road rage may cause the insurance premiums to spike higher than if you were found driving drunk. Worse, your insurance providers may decide to cancel your policy and drop you altogether.
