Aggressive drivers make the roads unsafe. A study conducted by the AAA Foundation for Safe Driving showed that 90 percent of people believed that aggressive drivers make the roads unsafe.
In the same study, many respondents admitted to engaging in unsafe driving behaviors.
There are a variety of reasons people give for driving aggressively. Some people have stated that they drive aggressively because the other person kept following them too closely.
Others have stated that they became aggressive because the other person attempted to run them off the road.
However, it is important for people to avoid driving aggressively whenever possible.
How To Avoid Becoming a Victim of an Aggressive Driver
There are many things that can be done to prevent aggressive driving. First and foremost, you want to make sure that you follow all of the rules of the road.
If another driver is angry with you, try to avoid making gestures or eye contact. Things like rolling your eyes or shaking your head may make a driver who is already irritated even angrier.
If you believe that you are being followed by an irate driver, then you should not hesitate to ask for help. Call the police if you have a cell phone.
You may also want to drive to a place with other people around, such as a hospital or grocery store. Avoid going home or getting out of your car if you believe you are being followed.
