A recent road rage incident near the Houston Galleria resulted in the arrest of a driver. According to a KHOU.com report, the incident began when people in a pickup truck and a van got into an altercation on the Westpark Tollway. The five men involved got out of their vehicles and got into a brawl. One of the men was taken to jail and will reportedly face a misdemeanor charge for criminal mischief.

Losing one’s temper in cases like these, say the Houston injury attorneys of 1800 CAR WRECK, can result in very serious negative consequences for those involved. If one does witness reckless driving on the road, or feels that someone in another vehicle is acting in a threatening manner towards them, the advisable thing to do is report the behavior to the proper authorities. The following are additional tips for avoiding Houston road rage incidents.

~Pull to a safe area even if it means taking an alternate route to your destination if someone is exhibiting aggressive or threatening behavior towards you or anyone in your vehicle.

~Keep your doors locked if someone has gotten out of their vehicle and is attempting to confront you on foot outside of your vehicle. Do not engage them in an argument or altercation, call 911 for help.

~Never drive aggressively or tailgate other vehicles in response to their driving behavior. This can lead to a dangerous situation.

In the event that one becomes involved in an accident due to the misconduct of other drivers, there may be cause for filing an accident injury claim for damages.
