According to "http://www.cyberdriveillinois.com/departments/drivers/traffic_safety/distracted.html"

Aggressive driving is the operation of a motor vehicle in a manner that endangers or is likely to endanger persons or property. Persons doing any of the following may be committing acts of aggressive driving and pose risk of a crash:

  • Speeding
  • Running red lights and stop signs
  • Tailgating
  • Passing on the shoulder of the road
  • Cutting off another vehicle
  • Slamming on brakes in front of a tailgater
  • Improper hand or facial gestures at other drivers
  • Yelling
  • Repeatedly honking the horn
  • Repeatedly flashing the headlights

Avoid aggressive drivers and potentially dangerous situations. If you encounter an angry or aggressive motorist:

  • Do not retaliate or in any way engage the other driver. Get out of the way.
  • Do not make eye contact.
  • Keep your doors locked and your windows up.
  • Keep enough space between you and the vehicle in front of you to pull out from behind.
  • Do not underestimate a driver's potential for aggression.
