HERE’S HOW YOU SHOULD RESPOND TO ROAD RAGE
According to Arrive Alive this is how you can avoid situations involving aggressive drivers:
If you are dealing with an aggressive driver, make sure your car’s doors are locked.
If you are stopped in the traffic, leave enough room to pull out from behind the car you are following.
Arrive Alive furthermore said if an aggressive driver confronts you, call 10111 or drive to the nearest police station.
DO NOT TAKE IT PERSONALLY
“Be polite and courteous, even if the other driver is not. Avoid any conflict, if possible. If another driver challenges you, take a deep breath and move out of the way. Never underestimate the other driver’s capacity for causing harm.”
REDUCE YOUR OWN STRESS
Understand that you cannot control the traffic, only your reaction to it. In the end, you may find that personal frustration, anger and impatience are the real danger zones on the highway.
- Be a courteous driver: You can set a good example, which can help make our roads safer. Control your anger.
- Avoid making eye contact with an aggressive driver.
- Do not make obscene gestures.
- Do not tailgate.
- Use your horn sparingly — even a polite honk can be misinterpreted.
- Do not block the passing
