Aggressive Driving


•How many of you have turned on the news or opened a newspaper to find that another human being was seriously injured or killed over an aggressive driving incident that turned to road rage?

•Many of these injuries or deaths could have been easily prevented if not for enraged dangerous behavior called road rage. The aggressive driving tendencies caused by road rage have majorly increased in the last several years on our roadways.

•As you can see proving that aggressive driving is a growing epidemic across our country is easy, but convincing drivers that there are better ways to handle road rage is a different story.

    Please post the WHOLE outline of the body of the speech. It's impossible to tell if an intro is any good without knowing what it's introducing!

    Okay I am working on that right now.

    Here is what I have so far. Am I on the right track?


    •Aggressive driving or road rage is defined as angry behavior by a driver of a motor vehicle. Such behavior might include rude gestures, verbal insult, deliberately driving in an unsafe or threatening manner, or making threats. (Wikipedia)
    •There are several types of road rage:
     Verbal Road Rage-behaviors such as yelling, swearing, gesturing, honking, and insulting.
     Quiet Road Rage-complaining, rushing, competing, and resisting.
     Epic Road Rage- cutting off, blocking, chasing, fighting, and shooting.

    •Today so many drivers are multitasking by either talking on a cell phone, reading, texting, eating, putting on makeup, and a lot of other things while trying to operate their vehicle. This is causing other motorist to become very angry because they do not have their full attention on the road.

    •Many of us have done some form of aggressive driving while on the road but we never even realized that it was road rage.

    2. Statistics of Aggressive Driving and Road Rage

    •“AAA uncovered 10,037 crashes caused by violent aggressive driving between January 1, 1990 and August 31, 1996. At least 218 men, women and children were killed as a result of these incidents and another 12,610 were injured. The problem is national in scope, not just a phenomenon of congested urban areas.”(The Mizell Report)
    •“A recent study conducted by the AAA Foundation found that nearly 90% of us have experienced an aggressive driving incident in the past twelve months.” (The Subcommittee on Surface Transportation)
