Goal 4 - Curbing Aggressive Driving
Though there have always been aggressive drivers, incidences of aggressive driving leading to crashes, injuries, and fatalities are becoming more prevalent. Aggressive driving often manifests itself as a combination of speeding and recklessness, making it particularly dangerous highway behavior. Uncontrolled anger, excessive speeding, changing lanes frequently without signalling, following too closely, driving on shoulders to pass, driving across marked barriers, shouting or gesturing at other drivers, and stress created by traffic congestion are among the causes and manifestations of aggressive driving.
