Road Rage, How to Respond Correctly
For a situation that sounds like something out of the Road Warrior script and movie, road rage unfortunately has continued to be a problem on California roads and highways. Often associated with an assumption that one has anonymity on the highway, some people are unable to control their tempers and generally try to lash out immediately against someone else while driving. Vehicles have never been 100 percent safe, even in the best of situations. When combined with someone who is having an anger management problem, they can become deadly in an Orange County car accident.
Victims of anger management usually expect that the police will fix everything after an event, especially a serious one that causes harm and property damage. However, the role and job of law enforcement is to stop violations of the law and contain those that do such actions. They have no responsibility for restoring things back to the status quo, even if the law provides those remedies. Instead, the civil court system is responsible for recovery, assuming parties file a lawsuit to pursue it.
