You hear it almost every day: I’m running late.
In Texas and across America, busy people are always playing a game of catch-up. The game spins out of control when it spills onto roadways and motorists engage in unsafe driving behaviors, including aggressive driving.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration defines aggressive driving as an act that occurs when “an individual commits a combination of moving traffic offenses so as to endanger other persons or property.”
Aggressive driving is traffic offense. This differs from road rage, which is a criminal offense characterized by willful and wanton disregard for the safety of others. Employers need to recognize both because of the number of collisions that occur every year and how those collisions impact their bottom line.
