Attitudes, Feelings and Emotions

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) defines aggressive driving as "the operation of a motor vehicle in a manner which endangers or is likely to endanger persons or property." NHTSA estimates that one-third of all crashes and two-thirds of resulting deaths involve some kind of aggressive driving behavior. These are some of the actions considered aggressive:

  • Speeding
  • Running red lights
  • Failure to yield
  • Following too closely
  • Unsafe lane change
  • Failure to obey traffic control devices
  • Failure to use proper signals
  • Improper passing
  • Failure to obey railroad grade crossing warnings
  • Failure to stop for a school bus
