Aggressive driving and other unsafe driving habits contribute to most crashes and fatalities between passenger vehicles and commercial motor vehicles. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration outlines the following driving behaviors as ones to avoid:

Unsafe Driving Behaviors:
  • Unsafe lane changes
  • Tailgating
  • Failing to signal lane changes
  • Failing to yield right-of-way
  • Speeding
  • Aggressive driving (a combination of two or more of the prior unsafe driving behaviors)

By avoiding unsafe driving behaviors, car and truck drivers can both help make the roads and highways a safer place to travel.
