Avoid Road Rage The Smart Way

March 2nd, 2018 by

Road rage is a serious concern when you’re on the road. You might not be prone to it, but other drivers are unpredictable. We have put together a guide on how to avoid being a casualty of road rage, either from your own anger or the anger of others on the road. Check it out!

First, when you are leaving your house in the morning, you should leave early enough to plan for delays. Whether it’s traffic, weather, or anything else, you’d rather be early than late. Being late can also make folks anxious, which leads to bad driving. Stay calm and leave early!

When you’re on the road, if someone is tailgating you then don’t panic. As soon as it is safe to do so, let them get past you. Wave them on if they need encouragement, but you don’t need to have someone following you so closely.

Lay off the horn, while we’re at it. It makes you upset and it really makes other people upset.

If you do get upset, either from that or from other things on the road, try listening to quiet talk radio or soft, soothing music in the background. It does calm people down, and being calm is the key to being safe!

If you do come across another driver who is road raging and has clearly not read this guide, just let them get past you as safely as possible. Let them be angry somewhere else!
