HOW TO DEAL WITH ROAD RAGE
With more and more cars plying our roads, your chances of having to deal with inconsiderate drivers during your daily commute are much higher. Unfortunately, there’s not much you can do about their driving behaviour, but you can control how you react.
Plan your trip well ahead of time to avoid delays and added frustration. Make sure you’re well rested in order to keep your cool. Have a playlist of music that calms you or lifts your spirit.
Be aware of your own mindset. While there are plenty of bad drivers out there, consider whether the way you’re feeling and reacting isn’t being aggravated by something else going on in your life.
Screaming and hooting might be satisfying, but it doesn’t really solve much, unless you’re trying to help avoid an accident. Rather focus on your own driving. Do not stop to confront someone. This affects traffic and can potentially be a dangerous situation.
Don’t try anything risky, such as racing ahead to overtake the person annoying you. Learn to control your own behaviour and set an example for others.
