Introduction:Road rage can escalate to danger levels in high traffic areas. Make sure you aren't provoking road rage in others, keep your cool, and stay safe on the highways.
It doesn't matter what the speed limit is, the inside lane is for passing and for speeding. Stay to the right and avoid the rage of the person behind you.
No one likes to be slowed down because of road construction, but it sends some drivers over the top. If someone is riding your bumper, try to get out of the way and let that raging driver ride someone else's chrome keester.
When changing lanes, or turning into traffic causes a driver to apply the brakes, the braking driver can feel inconvenienced at the least. The resulting rage may cause bumper riding, risky passing, and sudden braking to return the inconvenience.
Some drivers are always in a hurry because they haven't allowed for unexpected delays. The pressure of trying to make up time can cause frustration which turns into blame and rage.
Some drivers will feel rage based on their impression of the other driver. The raging driver may not want to be "stuck behind grandpa" or may judge another driver based on their car or even their license plate. No matter the other driver's actual driving behavior, the raging driver's impression is his or her truth.
If you encounter road rage in another, just let it go, and get out of the raging driver's way. If you are feeling rage, yourself, take a break and calm down. Accidents are caused by the risky behavior and distractions that road rage provokes.
Great list. Road rage is scary. I've heard keeping a "Sorry" sign in your car to hold up helps snap people back into people, lol ... good job. Thanks!
We all need to control our anger when we are behind the wheel.
Great list! I wrote this one too and I love your "construction" and "poor time management" reasons. So true.
This should be required reading when you get a license! Good work!
I hate following someone going 10 miles under the speed limit in the fast lane but I'm not one to let it get to me. I simply pass on the right - um, is that legal? Thanks for the great article though on road rage.
Good job, Bossy! I think people will read this one and learn something. :)
My husband gets really mad when driving. What upsets him most is when people don't utilize the turn lane, or when they come to a near stop when turning right. This is a really great list!
In California, all you have to do is look at somebody wrong and they will try to run you down.
