1. Stay in Your Car

If you find yourself on the road and being targeted by an aggressive driver, always stay in your car. Even if your driving dispute ends up on the side of the road, there’s no use in trying to reason with someone who is upset. Oftentimes, getting out of the car may escalate the situation. Stay calm and keep driving, whenever possible. 

Attorney2. Maintain Distance

If you notice a visibly aggravated driver, do your best to put distance between yourself and the driver. Maybe you cut someone off by accident or a driver in a hurry is tailgating you. The best course of action is to change lanes, turn onto another road or pull over and wait for the driver to pass you. 

3. Call 911

If you ever find yourself being followed on the road, call 911 as soon as possible. If someone is angry enough to follow you, the situation can quickly become unsafe. If you are being followed, head toward a police station and do not go home. You don’t want the other driving knowing where you live.
