When confronted by aggressive drivers, you should make every attempt to get out of their way. Put your seat back and do not challenge them by speeding up or attempting to hold-your-own in your travel lane. Wear your seat belt because it will hold you in your seat and behind the wheel in case you need to make an abrupt driving maneuver and it will protect you in the event of a crash. Avoid eye contact and ignore gestures and refuse to return them.

Report aggressive drivers to the proper authorities by providing a vehicle description, license number, location, and if possible, direction of travel. If an aggressive driver is involved in a crash farther down the road, stop a safe distance from the crash scene, wait for the police to arrive and report the driving behavior that you witnessed.
