Did you know that half of drivers who are on the receiving end of an aggressive behavior, such as horn honking, a rude gesture or tailgating, admit to responding with aggressive behavior themselves?

 

The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) Distric Six recently relaunched the Aggressive Driving awareness campaign for Miami-Dade and Monroe counties.
