What is aggressive driving?
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA),
aggressive driving is a serious problem on U.S. roadways. Aggressive driving
is a general term that refers to any number of unsafe or hostile driving
habits. For example, speeding, excessive lane changes, improper passing
and tailgating are all considered forms of aggressive driving. Any driver
that purposefully maneuvers his/her vehicle so that the chances of causing
a traffic accident are increased may be guilty of aggressive driving.
According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, at least 1,500 people
are killed or injured by aggressive drivers in the United States every
year. Sometimes, aggressive driving entails intentionally hitting or cutting-off,
or attempting to injure other drivers. On rare occasions, aggressive driving
escalates to "road rage," where infuriated drivers use weapons
(such as guns, baseball bats or pepper spray) to attack other drivers.
However, aggressive driving takes many forms and may not always be this obvious.
Avoiding Aggressive Driving
As a driver, there are a variety of precautions you can take to avoid being
injured by an aggressive driver. If you are tempted to retaliate, remember
that aggressive drivers injure and kill approximately 1,500 people every
year. This type of behavior is a serious threat; provoking an aggressive
driving is unwise and potentially dangerous. AAA recommends several safety
tips to avoid getting hurt by an aggressive driving.
Tips to avoid aggressive driving:
- Avoid blocking the passing lane. If you are in the far left lane and another
driver speeds up behind you, move over and allow them to pass.
- Avoid tailgating vehicles in front of you and always use your turn signal
before changing lanes.
- Avoid confusion by using your turn signal so other drivers know when you
plan to change lanes.
- Only use your horn when you absolutely need to.
- While driving near other cars, make sure that your car lights are kept low.
