Aggressive Driving Overtakes the Streets and Highways

« Back to Blog

Are you an aggressive driver?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) states that aggressive driving has become a serious problem. It’s more than just running people off the road or having some sort of altercation. Speeding, tailgating, erratically changing lanes, passing in a no-passing zone, are all examples of aggressive driving, and such behavior can increase the chances of accidents and fatalities.

According to the NHTSA, aggressive driving occurs when “an individual commits a combination of moving traffic offenses so as to endanger other persons or property” ( Reckless behavior, failing to yield or obey traffic signs and signals, driving on the shoulder, and not signaling are additional behaviors cited by the NHTSA as aggressive driving.
