How To Avoid Road Rage: This Weeks Auto Tip

Today is our first installment of weekly auto tips, so we thought that we would jump straight in and take a look at how to avoid road rage. This is a problem that has become more widespread — maybe because there are more vehicles on the road, or we just live a more hectic lifestyle?

I am the first to admit that I get angry sometimes with other drivers; I am not saying that I am the perfect driver, but I can say that I never pop my head out of the window to shout at other drivers. I have seen this happen on a number of occasions, even when they have children in the car — now that’s great parenting skills.

We have to remember that there is a serious side to this issue, according to the NHTSA one-third of crashes were the result of road rage. Jennifer M. Root has written an insightful article on Edmunds about offering 10 tips on how to avoid road rage.

The first couple certainly make sense, making sure that you get enough sleep and allow enough time for your journey. It is a known fact that if you do not get enough sleep then you will get up in a bad mood and often take it out on others. Making certain that you give yourself plenty of time to reach your destination is so important; if you do not then your whole car journey will be one big chaos.

These are just two tips, for the other 8 visit Edmunds.
