Preventative Measures

Here are a few examples of what's being done to combat aggressive driving on a larger scale:

Reporting aggressive drivers
Avoid making eye contact with aggressive drivers The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) are working together and with state law enforcement agencies to establish a nationwide cell phone number for motorists to report aggressive drivers to state or local police.


New technologies
Certain law enforcement agencies, including the police department in Washington D.C., are utilizing new technologies to better detect and enforce traffic law violations.

These technologies include laser imaging and video speed detection devices as well as high resolution digital traffic cameras.

The result is better evidence to prove violations, and a stronger deterrent against speeding and aggressive driving.


Graduated licensing
Many aggressive drivers are younger people, who have neither the education nor the experience to fully understand the consequences of aggressive drivers.

Thirteen states have established some form of graduated licensing. These programs impose certain provisions and restrictions on the novice driver, such as prohibiting any driving between midnight and 6 a.m., when many accidents occur.


Safer roads
A variety of new traffic control techniques such as coordinated traffic signals and ramp metering management programs have reduced the number of crashes and improved travel times, especially on heavily-used urban roads.
