Tailgating, speeding and cutting in front of someone too closely are examples of aggressive-driving behaviours. Aggressive driver behaviour may lead to a road-rage conflict between drivers and/or cause a collision. Avoid aggressive driving on the road by following these tips:
Know the warning signs of stress, and combat them by getting fresh air, breathing deeply and slowly, and listening to relaxing music
Make a conscious decision not to take your problems with you when driving
If you are on a long trip, take a break from driving every few hours
Don't compete with another driver, or retaliate for what you believe to be inconsiderate behaviour
If someone else's driving annoys you, don't try to "educate" the person. Leave traffic enforcement to the police
Don't take other drivers' mistakes or behaviours personally
