Introduction:Road Rage is no fun at all, but we all get it sooner or later. 7/5/2012 was one of those nights when I was very close to road rage, and maybe I was a bit. Here five reasons why.
A little bit of common sense goes a long way but some drivers just don't have any common sense. Why do you have to speed pass me to almost take off my front bumper? I don't care if you pass me, but please make sure I'm in your rear view mirror before you get in front of me.
When your in the ditch ahead I promise to make sure you are Okay and then laugh as I continue safely on my way.
Go ahead and speed. I may speed some, but I don't have to go any faster then posted on the sign. That speed limit sign is the most I can go, not the minimum, unless we are on the highway with the 45 minimum speed is posted. I don't need and don't want to waste my money on a speeding ticket.
Flashing your lights and honking your horn will surely make me drive slower though.
Down lines, down tree, and people who won't slow down although we can barely see through the rain only to hold everyone up when they are in an accident up ahead.
On 7/5/2012 my hour drive home was turned into two hours. At least five trees where down and two accidents. When the weather is bad, it called slow down and take your time. Not that we have to go 10 miles an hour but 60 in a 35 is not a good idea either.
Is it really that hard to stay in your own lane? Seeing people take up two lanes or think a curve means they can have the middle of the road drives me nuts. Stay in your own lane, it really isn't that hard. You can't just drive in both lanes. Pick one lane.
Being in the middle on curves is just dumb, dumb, and dumb. I don't know how many people I've almost hit because they think they need both lanes to make the curve. Hm mm. slow down and stay in your own darn lane.
Unless you are trying to get my attention for help or to warn me about something.... take your lights and your horn and stick it.
Flashing your lights and honking your horn is not going to make me break the law in anyway. I may make me pick up the phone and call the cops for you or drive nice and slow.
The flashing of the lights especially at night and during storms makes it harder for me to see. For safety reasons I'll go slower. Your horn just makes me mad. I'll turn up my music and drive nice and slow just to make me happier.
In a traffic jam. It doesn't matter that I didn't move that whole one foot you see in front of me. I leave it so I don't rear-end someone, especially when a driver hits me from following too close. So I'm going to leave that gap, so your horn is of no use.
These are reasons for road rage. People are just plan don't think and can be very rude. Safety is first in my life. I don't need to break the law or get a ticket and I'm going to make it home safely to my family. They depend on me and I'm going to be there for as long as I can.
I totally agrees with the following too close. I try to not look in my rear view mirror and ignore them, but fear they are going to hit me when I have to stop.
Most people know that I am a Christian...but when I get on the road and I am surrounded by complete idiots, my witness is seriously tested!! The ones that tend to irritate me most are the ones who feel like they have to drive too closely behind me.
tavaren, thank you for pointing out my grammar error. It was really a typo, but I've only worked 100 hours in the last two weeks and posted this very late at night, my fault. I got it all fixed thanks to you pointing it out. I'm sorry I upset you so much because I want to be safe, but I thought if I slowed down for you, you could safely pass me.. in your rear view mirror.
Thank you for sharing this list. H5.
Wow. That just sucked! When someone flashes their lights your answer is to slow down to piss them off more? Why not just let them go past if safety is such a huge concern for you? Get them out of your life. Who knows what their situation is. Maybe they have an emergency and your slow driving is screwing them. You are not a cop so don't be judgmental. Plus your english is garbage. Hard to take someone seriously when your grammar is a mess. Get off the road you whiny spiteful baby!
Road rage makes me have road rage. I can't stand the honking, even if it isn't aimed at me.
Good points made on your road rage list. I avoid these people at all costs. h5
