    • Speeding
    • Ignoring a traffic control device, including a traffic control signal
    • Passing on the shoulder
    • Unsafe lane changes
    • Following too closely
    • Failure to yield the right-of-way
    • Vehicles entering the roadway
    • Failure to use turn signals
    • Overtaking and passing a stopped school bus

If a driver commits three of these offenses in a single incident, that person will be charged with aggressive driving. They may be fined $100 to $300 or face 10 to 30 days in jail. In addition, the driver must complete a behavior modification course.
