A matter of attitude
Passing a car using the right carriageway, driving closer to the car in front of you, not respecting the red light, speeding or slowing down suddenly, driving in high speed or very slow, or simply not showing other drivers the direction you are going to take, are some of the behaviors considered as "aggressive driving".
The main cause are the delays - a delayed driver going to work or any other commitment has more probabilities to make mistake, to reduce his level of attentiveness and to drive in higher speed. Nevertheless, the aggressiveness can also be a consequence of competition between drivers or a simple enjoyment of speed. It can also be a result of situations of stress caused by personal problems or by a simple traffic jam.
This kind of driving usually causes situations of conflict, from which can result accidents. In other cases, it causes more aggressiveness which results in competition between drivers.
Here are some advises to avoid aggressiveness when driving or to prevent possible situations of conflict with other drivers, or pawns:
- Everyone makes mistakes, so learn how to forgive other people's mistakes;
- Be patient. Do not answer any challenging situation;
- Apology whenever you make a mistake;
- Avoid being late;
- Increase the distance between other cars.
