National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) defines aggressive driving as “the operation of a motor vehicle in a manner which endangers or is likely to endanger persons or property.” It is equally dangerous for pedestrians, cyclists as well as a motorist. As reported by NHTSA, approximately one-third of motor vehicle accidents resulting in deaths are caused by road rage. Examples of aggressive driving are improper overtaking or passing, disregarding traffic control devices, excessive speeding, disobeying the traffic signals, abrupt change of lanes, not stopping for an ambulance or school bus, not slowing down at a school or pedestrian crossings and not keeping sufficient distance between the vehicle in front.
South Florida’s population is on the rise and there are too many people trying to get somewhere too fast and someone else is in their way, thus drivers are zig-zagging between lanes, speeding or disobeying safe driving laws. We can all be safe on the roads if we avoid aggressive driving, share the road, do not speed and exercise caution.
