Everyone at least once meets an aggressive driver on the road. Road rage, an extreme form of aggressive driving, is considered as a crime.

On the other hand, aggressive drivers violate the law and eschew the responsibility of driving safely. Below are some dangerous techniques of driving that are associated closely with aggressive driving. These include:

  • Over speeding or driving at dangerously low speed.
  • Fail to yield
  • Passing or crossing illegally
  • Tailgating
  • Disregarding the road rules
  • Ignoring any traffic control device like traffic signals
  • Changing lane unsafely
  • Failure to use turn indicators

Driving Against the Law

Many of the car accident news we heard is the result of reckless and aggressive driving. Serious actions are taken to control this driving behavior. For the first offense, a driver can be either ticketed or pay fines.

Other punishments include license suspension, jail time, or enrollment in the driving course or behavior modification class. Sanctions can be more intense, depending upon the severity of the case.

The driver breaks the aggressive driving law if he/she attempts the violation of three or more forms of aggressive driving in a single case.

Why Is Aggressive Driving Dangerous?

Of all car accidents, a high percentage of results due to aggressive driving. Studies show that two to four times more people are killed due to aggressive driving than drunk driving. Besides, it often happens and significantly contributes to the injuries and fatalities due to collisions.

What To Do If You Confront An Aggressive Driver

As there are different forms of aggressive driving, but it seems like the aggressive driver is endangering you or provoking you deliberately, then it’s better to get out of the situation safely and quickly. If you think it’s defensible, then safely exit the road inform authorities. Your responsible action can save a life. Here are a few other tips on this matter.

  • Keep your focus on driving: Sitting on the driver’s seat requires you to concentrate and drive safely. Do not take out the frustrations on other drivers, whether they are related to driving or not.
  • Schedule accordingly: Mostly, the drivers in hurry drive aggressively. So always plan the trip ahead of time to factor in the possible delays. By doing this, you get a reasonable time duration to reach the destination as well as it helps to eliminate the urge to let the aggression take over you.
  • Do not inflame other drivers: When an aggressive driver performs a dangerous driving maneuver like cutting you off, then it is normal that you get angry. However, the fact is that aggressive drivers are more inclined to provocation. Thus as a safety, always steer far away as much as you can from the aggressive drivers.

Besides, ignore any gestures and do not make eye contact or any attempted communication. Hopefully, these tips will save you from the aggressive drivers. However, in case of any injury by the aggressive driver, consult an experienced law firm i.e Pacific Attorney Group to get compensation.
