What causes aggressive driving?
What can you do to drive safer?
Plan ahead to avoid driving in traffic and leave plenty of time to get to your destination. If something happens on the road, accept that you will be late and pull over to let your family, friends, or work know of the change in plans.
Change Your Attitude
Instead of getting upset, practice courtesy, caution, and common sense.
Avoid Emotionally-Charged Conversations
Being distracted by passengers arguing can cause aggressive behaviours while driving.
Don't respond to an aggressive driver's rude or negative gestures. Call for help if you need to.
