They fly past you and then cut you off with inches to spare.
Maybe they make an offensive gesture when they feel you haven't
been cooperative enough in their rush to get where they're going.
We all know exactly what an aggressive driver looks like. Or do
we? Do any of these examples sound familiar?
You faithfully merged to the right when you saw the sign
announcing a lane closing ahead. And now, after waiting 10
minutes in line, someone comes driving down the empty left lane
and tries to merge in front of you. You step on the gas and
close the gap between you and the next car. They won't be
cutting in front of you today!
You're ten minutes late for work and driving just a bit over
the speed limit when the light ahead of you turns yellow. You're
not close enough to make it but you feel you can't afford to
wait, so you step on the gas and rocket through the intersection
just as the light turns red.
You're driving 5-10 mph over the speed limit on a four-lane
highway. As you change lanes to pass a slow-moving semi, you
find a car sitting in the passing lane going about the same
speed as the truck. You get right on their tail, flash your
lights and give them a toot on the horn.
So who is an aggressive driver? It just might be you.
