New study shows men more aggressive behind the wheel

DEARBORN, Mich. – A new study says that men are more aggressive drivers on the road. The study done by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety shows that men tend to speed, tailgate, merge dangerously, and make rude gestures at other drivers more than women. The survey found that women also admit to some dangerous driving habits, such as running red lights. Overall, younger male and female drivers tend to be more aggressive than older drivers. With the stresses of the pandemic and now the holiday season, which can elevate tensions on the road, AAA is urging motorists to keep their cool and avoid dangerous driving habits. AAA is asking drivers that come in contact with aggressive motorists this holiday season to keep their distance and call 911 if needed.
