Driving can be frustrating for everyone. But while you probably just sigh and mutter to yourself when you get annoyed behind the wheel, some people go beyond frustration and begin to drive recklessly. Also known as road rage, aggressive driving is an extremely dangerous behavior that threatens the lives of everyone on the road.
Below are some tips on what to do if you spot an aggressive driver:
- Do not make eye contact: Many aggressive drivers are looking for someone to target. If they line you up in their crosshairs, they may follow you, honk their horn at you or make obscene gestures in your direction. If you spot an aggressive driver, do not make eye contact with him or her.
- Change lanes: Imagine this scenario: You're driving on the highway and someone insists on tailgating as close as possible to you. This person could in fact be an aggressive driver and you should change lanes and allow him or her to pass you.
- Wear your seatbelt: Any time you operate a motor vehicle, you should wear your seatbelt. If you see an aggressive driver nearby, check to make sure you are buckled up.
