How to Avoid Reckless Driving
The safest way to avoid a reckless driver is to just get out of their way. If someone is driving aggressively—for example, tailgating, honking, or switching in and out of lanes quickly—then move over and let them pass you.
Help prevent a reckless driving accident by following these tips:
- If you are driving slower, stay in the right lane as much as possible
- Do not use hand gestures or make eye contact with an aggressive driver as this typically escalates the situation
- Avoid stressful driving situations; for example, by leaving earlier in the morning when there are less vehicles on the road
- Pay attention to the road; by knowing what is going on around you, you can prevent possible collisions
- Leave enough space between you and the vehicle in front of you
- Avoid distracted driving which can cause you to speed unknowingly, run stop signs and lights, and veer into other lanes
Are You an Aggressive Driver?
According to AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety research, 78% of respondents rated aggressive drivers as a serious or extremely serious traffic safety problem.

It was also shown that 22% respondents admitted to tailgating, 41% honking at other drivers, 58% speeding up to beat a yellow light, and 26% pressuring other drivers to speed up.
