If you feel threatened by an aggressive driver, pull your car over and stay inside it with the doors locked. An aggressive driver could be behaving badly for a number of reasons and it is unwise to attempt to ‘take them on’ in any way. Similarly, if you stay on the road then you could make a mistake which could quickly lead to you running into serious difficulties.
Call the police
Let the police know about this aggressive driver as soon as you possibly can, including any information about the car that they are driving that you can see or remember, and where it looks like they are headed. It is generally best to let the police handle these situations as they are going to be respected and listened to by most drivers.
