If you value your safety, watch out for these five signs you’re an aggressive driver.

1. You hog the left lane.

The left lane is for passing only. If you hog it, a lot of people will get angry with you (can you blame them?).

This is one of the most widely accepted traffic rules out there. Only use the left lane to pass slow vehicles. After you complete the pass, move back over. Fail to follow this rule and expect lots of middle fingers!

2. You have a short fuse.

What’s the point of losing your temper? It doesn’t solve anything. You’ll just end up more stressed out than you were in the first place. Pay attention to what kinds of situations make you upset. The next time you encounter something like that, pull over and take a few deep breaths.

3. You hurry everywhere.

If you’re constantly in a rush, then you need to manage your time better. This isn’t about productivity. I’m concerned with your safety. Drivers make bad decisions when they hurry. Have you ever got pulled over for speeding to work? If so, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Leave with ten minutes to spare.

4. You frighten your passengers.

Most people claim to be a “safe” driver, despite the fact that they engage in risky behaviors. It’s easy to point the finger at other drivers. It’s hard to accept responsibility for your own actions. Try this. Pay attention to the reactions of your passengers. If you do things that startle them, then you might be an aggressive driver.

5. You think other drivers are out to get you.

Don’t assume everything is about you. If someone cuts you off, it could be an honest mistake. How many times have you forgot to check your blind spot? If someone speeds past you, they might have a good reason to rush. Would you follow the speed limit if your kid was in the hospital? Negativity serves no purpose anyway. Let it go.
