Aggressive driving gives rise to many of the road accident claims in Grangemouth that we here at Accident Advice Helpline process for clients. It’s usually male drivers who are guilty, but a small percentage of women drivers are involved too. It’s crass and dangerous, and often leads to incidents of road rage, accidents, and injuries.
How aggressive driving often manifests itself
Aggressive driving manifests itself in many ways. It includes things like:
- Driving too close to the vehicle in front
- Flashing other drivers with your headlights
- Aggressive use of your car’s horn
- Rude gestures
- Verbal abuse
- Frequent lane changing
- Disregarding traffic signs and signals
- Failing to give way
Most of the acts of aggressive driving take place when people are in a hurry, or are in a bad mood. Some people however are just naturally belligerent.
Tips on how to deal with aggressive drivers
If you have an encounter with an aggressive driver, the worst thing you can do is to get involved. If you reciprocate in any way you are only likely to worsen the situation. Here are a few tips on how to deal with certain situations:
- Keep calm
- Try to maintain a safe distance
- Don’t try to overtake
- Change lanes if and when it is safe to do so
- Don’t reciprocate to rude gestures
- Make a note of the offender’s car registration number and report the incident to the police when it is safe and convenient to do so.
