What Is Aggressive Driving?

What Is Aggressive Driving?

Nearly 80 percent of drivers across the country express anger or road rage, which often leads to aggressive driving. When people drive aggressively, they become a serious hazard on the road. The Houston car accident attorneys at Daspit Law Firm explains what it means to drive aggressively and how it can endanger others on the road.

What It Means to Drive Aggressively

Aggressive driving is when a driver isn't cautious of their surroundings and is careless on the road. An aggressive driver also disregards other people's safety and makes poor driving decisions that increase the risk of causing a collision. Unfortunately, aggressive driving has contributed to many car accidents nationwide.

Common types of aggressive driving include the following:

  • Speeding
  • Tailgating
  • Cutting other drivers
  • Running red lights or stop signs
  • Weaving in and out of traffic
  • Changing lanes abruptly
  • Failing to use signals
  • Braking abruptly

Road Rage Leads to Aggressive Driving

One of the most common reasons why people drive aggressively is due to road rage. Road rage is when a driver gets upset at another driver on the road and starts speeding or tailgating. Road rage is a bad habit to have because it increases the risk of being involved in a car accident.

Common examples of road rage include the following:

  • Cursing or signaling rude gestures to other drivers
  • Ramming
  • Side sweeping
  • Throwing objects
  • Forcing a driver off the road
  • Excessive honking
