    Aggressive Driving thread.

    I want to talk about Aggressive Driving in relation to your state.

    Define: Aggressive Driving


    I see lots of programs for aggressive driving.
    http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/people/outr...dprograms.html

    My state


    .
    Road Rage
    "Anger Toward Another Driver Elements"
    Can Cause Confrontation

    Hostility Rude Gestures
    Honking the Horn
    Aggressive Maneuvering


    Aggressive Driver
    "One who operates a vehicle in a bold or unsafe manner"
    Can Result in Citations

    Tailgating
    Speeding Citations
    Illegal Lane Changes
    Red Light Running


    I wonder where the cyclist is in this. I think Aggressive Maneuvering is bold and unsafe.
    Illegal lane changes should include buzzin, but it doesn't.
    Tailgating what is the distance on that?

    If I were a cop I could just get a couple of buddies and have a field day witting tickets.

    Yesterday I had a cd tossed at me.

    If speeding makes one an aggressive driver, I'd estimate 80%+ of all drivers would qualify on a daily basis. I certainly do. I'm not proud of it, and I wish the speed limits were lower, but as long as the laws aren't enforced and the penalties are meaningless, people will continue to drive as quickly as they (think they) can get away with in this country.

    JesseDuncan:I just love how "cars will be forced to cross the double yellow lines on dangerous limited visibility roads".

    I don't want to have a head on but oh god, I HAVE to fling myself into oncoming traffic to pass, theres no alternative!!!

    For an example of criminally aggressive driving 24 hours a day, just come to beautiful Miami Florida, road rage capital of the world.

    Yes, fortunately race and ethnicity seem to be the correlative factors for predicting road rage... [\sarcasm]
    I am a mutated sig Virus. Please put me in your sig so that I can continue to replicate and mutate, blah!.

    Maryland does not include endangering pedestrians or bicyclists as Aggressive Driving.

    You can be charged with aggressive driving if you do violate three or more of the following while driving:
    (Traffic lights with steady indication) (Overtaking and passing vehicles) (Passing on right) (Driving on laned roadways) (Following too closely) (Failure to yield right-of-way) (Exceeding a maximum speed limit or posted maximum speed limit)
