There’s a thing that happens when we get in a car. We think no one can see us. Nose picking? Might as well put it on a Jumbotron. Belting it? It’s the Tuesday morning commute, not the Grammys. But in your car, you become isolated in your own world until you’re the only thing that matters on the road.

So what happens when someone doesn’t go as fast as you want them to go? Maybe you feel the need for speed because you’re late for work or a date. Perhaps you feel like the whole world is trying to make you late, slow you down
and push your buttons?

That’s the aggressive driving mindset.

Slow your roll and
save a life.

Chill out, dog

When you feel the need to speed, swerve or drive aggressively, remember these tips from Andy, MDT’s four-legged mascot.

When (and when not) to be aggressive

There’s a time and a place for everything. No one knows this better than pro linebacker Troy Andersen.

Even rivals can agree on this

How can you 




Aggressive driving is dangerous. Even though you think the rest of the world is going too slow, you may be putting yourself and everyone else at risk if you drive aggressively.

Follow the speed limit

This allows you to react to changing traffic conditions. If road conditions change due to weather, slow down.

Give plenty of braking distance

Tailgating another driver is incredibly dangerous because you cannot respond quickly enough if they brake.

Take a deep breath

Many drivers start speeding or driving aggressively because someone drove aggressively or failed to yield the right of way. Instead of speeding or cutting someone off, take a breath.
