Here's what we know of them, so far:
These high risk drivers climb into the anonymity of an
automobile and take out their frustrations on anybody
at any time.
For them, frustration levels are high, and level of
concern for fellow motorists is low.
They run stop signs and red lights, speed, tailgate,
weave in and out of traffic, pass on the right, make
improper and unsafe lane changes, make hand and
facial gestures, scream, honk, and flash their lights.
They drive at speeds far in excess of the norm, which
causes them to: follow too closely, change lanes
frequently and abruptly without notice (signals), pass
on the shoulder or unpaved portions of the roadway,
and leer at and/or threaten - verbally or through
gestures - motorists who are thoughtless enough to
be in front of them.
Parking on, over or the blocking of any sidewalk
is not permitted.
