As a driver you have probably experienced that driving on our roads is getting dangerous.

Have you experienced:

  • Angry gestures & yelling
  • Aggressive honking
  • One vehicle chasing another
  • A driver leaving their car to confront someone
  • A vehicle trying to stop another vehicle
  • An altercation involving a weapon
  • A driver physically attacking someone
  • A confrontation involving a gun
  • Someone firing a gun

According to a survey conducted by Policygenius in 2022, 70% of US drivers have witnessed some form of road rage during the past year.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration offers the following advice for dealing with dangerously aggressive drivers:

  • If you are in the left lane and someone wants to pass, move over and let them by.
  • Give speeding drivers plenty of space. Speeding drivers may lose control of their vehicle more easily.
  • Adjust your driving accordingly. Speeding is tied to aggressive driving. If a speeding driver is tailgating you or trying to engage you in risky driving, use judgment to safely steer your vehicle out of the way.
  • Call the police if you believe a driver is following you or harassing you.

As you drive, follow the tips above and stay safe.
