According to the
AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety, aggressive driving accounts for more than half of all traffic fatalities.
In a AAA study, eight out of 10 drivers agree that aggressive driving
is a “serious” or “extremely serious” risk that
jeopardizes their safety, and yet aggressive driving is something that
most drivers have exhibited themselves at least once.
Examples of aggressive driving behavior include:
- Speeding or racing
- Unsafe merging
- Running stop signs and red lights
- Cutting off another driver on purpose
- Blocking another vehicle from changing lanes
- Honking or making angry gestures
- Yelling at another driver
Unfortunately, many drivers regularly engage in these driving behaviors,
presenting a serious threat to the safety of our roads and highways. Speeding
is one of the most common forms of aggressive driving, accounting for
more than one-third of fatal accidents.
Todd Miner Law would like to remind all drivers to share the road and to
be courteous to other drivers at all times. When someone cuts you off,
don’t respond in a way that will escalate the situation –
remaining calm is the best way to ensure your safety and the safety of
those around you. When we all do our part to drive in a conscientious
manner, we can drastically reduce the number of preventable
car accidents that occur.
