Eliminate Aggressive Driving
Aggressive driving is operating a motor vehicle in a selfish, pushy, or impatient manner, often unsafely, that directly affects other drivers. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that aggressive drivers cause two-thirds of all fatal crashes and nearly 35 percent of all crashes.
Who are aggressive drivers?
These are high-risk drivers who climb into the anonymity of an automobile and take out frustrations on anybody at any time and have no concern for fellow motorists.
Aggressive driving habits are:
! Running stop signs and red lights
! Weaving in-and-out of traffic
! Passing on the right
! Making improper and unsafe lane changes
! Making hand and facial gestures
! Screaming, honking, and flashing their lights
! Following too close
! Changing lanes frequently and abruptly without notice (signals)
! Passing on the shoulder or unpaved portions of the roadway
! Using verbal threats or gestures at motorists in front of them
