§ 31-27.1-1. Legislative findings.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that aggressive driving causes two-thirds ( 2 / 3 ) of fatal accidents and one-third ( 1 / 3 ) of all accidents. The general assembly finds that aggressive driving has become a significant public safety concern in recent years and specific legislation designed to severely curtail this problem driving behavior is in the public interest.
