Road Rage with a Firearm

Attorney Marc J. Victor

Road Rage with a Firearm – Road Rage can lead to serious criminal charges if you display your firearm or threaten another driver with your firearm. First of all, there is nothing happening on the road that should cause you to get so angry that you would pull out your firearm and threaten another driver. This is a very easy and foolish way to end up with a dangerous felony on your record.

Road Rage is foolish, to begin with. If someone cuts you off or does something while driving that you feel was wrong, just smile and wave at them. Even flipping someone off could cause the situation to escalate, so just let it go. It’s not worth risking a felony conviction over the actions of another driver.

Remember, these are all first-world problems. The fact is, you are probably driving around in a late model car, with air-conditioning, and a nice sound system. If someone else is driving in a way that you don’t like, just let them go and get on with the rest of your day. Even if they are completely in the wrong…so what? Try to take a pause and remind yourself that this is a first-world “problem”, and you are fortunate to have such a “problem” in the first place.

Whatever you do, don’t be an idiot and pull out your firearm. Even if your intention is to only scare the other driver, you can be charged with a very serious, mandatory prison offense. If you simply display your firearm during a Road Rage incident, you can expect at the least to be charged with felony disorderly conduct which carries mandatory prison for those who are convicted. If you point your firearm at another driver, you will most likely be charged with aggravated assault dangerous, which is a Class 3 felony. This means you could serve 5-15 years in prison, and this is not probation eligible, even for first-time offenders.

So, don’t be an idiot and ruin what could be many years of your life over a foolish Road Rage incident. Instead, smile and turn up the music, relax, and go about your day. Nothing on the road should cause you to get angry enough to threaten another driver with your firearm. Remember, these are first-world problems you are experiencing.

This is my advice on how to avoid getting into a Road Rage incident. But, if you are charged with any type of incident involving Road Rage, contact the Attorneys for Freedom law firm to schedule a Strategy Session with one of our criminal defense attorneys.

I hired Attorneys For Freedom in 2020 for a very serious matter involving my significant other. I... spent a couple of hours calling around looking for attorneys and the ONLY attorney willing to talk to me on behalf of my significant other was Andy Marcantel. It was end of day and he took the time, to speak to me and to myself, my significant other and his family, the next day as well.I knew immediately, I wanted to hire Andy for this serious matter. My significant other was facing serious time and we were both terrified. I trusted Andy and his team to get the absolute, best, possible outcome. From the very beginning, Andy was nothing short of truthful, communicative, professional, informative, kind and hilarious.I would email Andy late at night with concerns or questions and he would communicate back immediately just to let me know he was scheduling us a meeting the next day to go over everything. For almost 2 years, Andy and his team worked diligently on this case and about 3 weeks ago, it went to court for the last time and my significant other received the BEST outcome possible. Considering what he was facing, I will never be able to thank Andy properly for his work but what I can do, is let EVERYONE know, if you’re in need of a law firm, I HIGHLY recommend Attorneys For Freedom. You will not be disappointed.There is so much integrity, kindness and care in that office.Attorneys For Freedom holds true to their mission statement and their values.Andy, I cannot thank you enough for everything and the time and effort you took to ensure we understood every single part of the case and the justice system. I’m eternally grateful to you.read more

I had my doubts at the beginning, Andy, is one of the best guys I have known. He answers every... question I ask, he is there from start to finish. He has a client now for the rest of my life, if anything were to happen. I cannot be more happier with the way these guys run their businessread more
