Aggressive Driver Tips
Six Tips For Dealing with Aggressive Drivers
An aggressive driver might be defined as one who "operates a motor vehicle in a selfish, bold, or pushy manner, without regards for the rights or safety of the other users of the streets and highways"(New York State Police Department definition). A likely cause of this behavior is more congested roads, and it seems to be increasing in metropolitan areas. One study suggested that road rage may start as a relatively minor traffic incident and culminate in a violent act, often the result of a series of stressful events in a person's life.
The New York State Police Department has developed six tips for dealing with aggressive drivers that drivers in any state would be wise to employ.
* Always remain calm and avoid eye contact with the aggressive driver.
* Keep your distance as much as possible from the aggressive driver.
* Avoid passing an aggressive driver.
* Change lanes when you can safely do so to allow the aggressive driver to pass.
* If you are unable to change lanes and an aggressive driver is tailgating you, maintain the proper speed and do not respond with hostile gestures.
* Call 911 from your cell phone when you can safely do so to report this incident.
