Aggressive Drivers are a Concern in Our Country.

A recent poll by the Canadian Automobile Association shows Canadians see aggressive driving as a serious threat to their safety on the road.  This rivals impaired and distracted driving.

             

Their Vice-President of Public Affairs Ian Jack reports more than 90 percent say forms of aggressive driving such as drivers running red lights and speeding are a threat to their safety on the road.  More than 90 percent also say a leading cause of distraction is people using their phone while driving which is also a serious threat although they admitted to having done at least one distracting activity while driving.  Driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs was also seen as a top threat and the survey also revealed the vast majority of Canadians said it is important to have alternative travelling arrangements after consuming alcohol or cannabis.

             

Jack adds they urge everyone to make safe decisions, plan ahead and keep your focus on the road.
