Tailgating and Horn-Honking Among Dangerous Behaviors

About 56 percent of all fatal car accidents involve aggressive driving behaviors, with males between the ages of 19 and 39 deemed the “most aggressive” drivers on U.S. roadways. According to NBC News, the new statistics come courtesy of the American Automobile Association and have authorities warning drivers about how to respond if they encounter reckless or angry drivers while behind the wheel.

Tailgating, horn-honking, and cutting off other drivers are among the dangerous behaviors more than 80 percent of Americans have admitted to performing within the past year, with many law enforcement officials confirming they see such incidents every day. Men were also three times as likely as women to engage in these types of behaviors, and while road rage incidents have made headlines in numerous cities, some areas see more road rage-related problems than others. The most likely Americans to engage in aggressive driving behaviors, research indicates, are those in the Northeast, a fact that may be attributed to the traffic congestion that plagues much of the region.
