What is Aggressive Driving?
The National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA) defines aggressive driving as “the operation of a motor vehicle in a manner that endangers or is likely to endanger persons or property.”
The following are some common aggressive driving behaviors:
- Weaving in and out of traffic
- Excessive speeding
- Illegal lane changes
- Failure to yield the right-of-way
- Brake checking

Aggressive Driving and Road Rage
Aggressive driving occurs when a motorist commits traffic offenses that endanger the people around them. Aggressive behaviors displayed while driving can at times escalate to road rage. The NHTSA defines road rage as “an assault with a motor vehicle or weapon by the operator of a motor vehicle precipitated by a traffic incident.”
Road rage driving behaviors may include:
- Braking suddenly in front of another vehicle
- Prolonged use of the horn to aggravate a fellow driver
- Forcing another driver off the road
- Throwing objects at a person or vehicle
- Tapping another driver’s bumper
- Exiting your vehicle with the intent of injuring another driver
- Brandishing a firearm or other dangerous weapon
Road rage is extremely dangerous and can have serious consequences. Many acts of road rage are criminal offenses that can result in heavy fines and even jail time.
