A man driving through Nashville claims that he and his 10-year-old daughter were targets in a road rage incident. The road rage accident was allegedly rooted in anger over a bumper sticker supporting Barack Obama for President on the man’s car.
Mark Duren told a news station in Tennessee the incident happened at around 4:30 p.m. while driving on Blair Boulevard. Harry Weisiger allegedly gave him the middle finger and hit his car after seeing the Obama bumper sticker on his car.
Our car accident lawyers believe that there is no excuse for road rage. While bumper stickers are a way for drivers to express themselves, that doesn’t give you the right to try to run them off the road — as Duren alleges Weisiger did — if you disagree about their opinion. Road rage causes more car accidents than you may think. Every day, there is the possibility of a driver being too aggressive or expressive on the roads and highways. When you’re on the road, remember to keep your anger in check.
Duren had just picked his daughter up from school when, according to details, Weisiger flipped Duren off with his daughter in the car and continued honking his horn. When Duren went through a stop sign, the Weisiger’s SUV hit Duren’s car. Even though Duren put his car in park to limit the effect of the car accident, Weisiger started pushing the car using his SUV.
Police have charged Weisiger with felony reckless endangerment for his little road rage accident.
