Aggressive Driving vs. Road Rage – What’s the Difference?

Posted on 09/23/2013 by Adrienne Sallerson  |  0 Comments

Aggressive Driving vs. Road Rage – What’s the Difference?

According to a recent Automotive Fleet article, “Research Offers Best Practices to Avoid Road Rage,” road rage and aggressive driving are not the same. So, what’s the difference? Aggressive driving is a traffic offense while road rage is a criminal offense.

According to the American Automobile Association (AAA), road rage is defined as “violent anger caused by the stress and frustration involved in driving a motor vehicle – a motorist’s uncontrolled anger that is usually provoked by another motorist’s irritating act and is expressed in aggressive or violent behavior with an intention to cause physical harm.” 

What are the two most common factors of road rage? Rushing and congestion. Both can be pretty difficult to avoid, especially for fleet drivers constantly on the go. With driver safety being top of mind, it’s important that fleet managers know how to define road rage so they can incorporate ways to manage this behavior in their safety policies.  Here are some tips to help avoid road rage from AAA:

  1. Don’t offend. What’s going to really anger other drivers? Cutting them off, driving slowly in the left lane, tailgating and gesturing obscenities. Just don’t do it. 
  2. Don’t engage. Avoid aggressive drivers altogether. Why put yourself in danger? 
  3. Make time secondary. Always give yourself a few extra minutes to get somewhere. Never rush. Even if you are running late, it’s more important to drive safely.  
  4. Practice relaxation techniques. Try listening to soothing music, a book on tape, radio news or deep breathing. Others have found relaxation in these types of techniques.
  5. Don’t take it personally. You never know what’s going on in the lives of other drivers. If they are speeding or swerving, don’t get angry. What if they are hurrying to a hospital?
