Preventing Road Rage and Aggression
Aggressive driving actions, such as speeding, tailgating, and weaving in and out of traffic, can all be factors in serious, and sometimes, fatal accidents. It is important to keep your cool when experiencing aggressive driving on the road by those around you, and also to not partake in it. Aggressive driving can lead to road rage and possibly even vehicular and physical violence. Below are some tips on how to avoid being involved in a road rage incident:
- Don’t give other drivers a reason to feel offended. When you merge, make sure you have plenty of room and use your turn signal to show your intentions before making a move. If you’re in the left lane and someone wants to pass, move over and let the vehicle by. Don’t tailgate – allow at least a three-second space between your vehicle and the vehicle ahead.
- Do not give in to other angry drivers. Avoid confrontation at all costs and call the police if a situation escalates.
- Avoid using obscene gestures or aggressive actions while on the road that will lead to retaliation from other drivers around you.
