Aggressive driving is often triggered by trivial disputes and includes such things as refusing to allow a motorist to pass, obscene gestures, horn blowing, tailgating, and failure to obey traffic laws. Aggressive driving is different from “road rage.” Road rage usually involves a driver breaking a criminal law, such as by shooting a gun at another driver who cut him off. However, aggressive driving can be just as dangerous, to both the aggressive driver and those with whom he shares the road.
Don’t be an aggressive driver. Allow yourself extra travel time to arrive at your destination so you do not have to hurry, and remain calm in traffic. The best way to avoid being the target of an aggressive driver is to practice basic traffic courtesy. Think the best of other drivers and assume that if they make a mistake, it is not personal. Avoid conflict if possible (even if you are in the right) and carefully consider the possible consequences before you react.
Call 911 to report unsafe or aggressive drivers. The risks and consequences of aggressive driving are great, and you should take care to be neither a perpetrator nor a victim.
