§ 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.
