I think there is an "aggressive driving" law on the books in Florida, but according to the site linked below it's not enforced as such by state statute. The site below shows what laws are available, what actions may constitute aggressive driving, and if or how these laws are enforced in the states that have them.

I absolutely agree with others who say that aggressive driving is rampant in SE Florida. It's not quite as bad here in SW Florida, but IMO it's on the increase here too as the population density increases.

It mellows out in April when the snowbirds go home.

They had an article on the news that claimed the population in PBC increased by 500,000 during the snow bird season. I have to guess that's at least 250,000 extra vehicles on the road, with nothing else to do but create havoc!!!

But don't worry, for in another 30 days it will be almost over till next October when they all start coming back again..

It seems the further south you go, the worse it gets.

They do that because of the people texting at the light never look up when the light changes

Maybe its everywhere in South FL, but its certainly not "everywhere" if you're referring to other areas or states.
