As a Virginia motorist, it is important that you drive cautiously and remain on the lookout for aggressive drivers. At any given time of the day, you may come into contact with motorists who have road rage, as they are rushing to get to an appointment or have just had a bad day. In fact, aggressive driving is involved in at least 56 percent of fatal accidents in the United States, according to AAA. Furthermore, at least 80 percent of American motorists admit to driving in an aggressive manner. It is critical that you are able to recognize these aggressive driving behaviors so that you may avoid becoming involved in a catastrophic accident.
