Collection of Road Rage and Driving Tips

Compiled and Edited by Dr. Leon James

  1. Stay out of the way. Give aggressive drivers plenty of room to get around you.

  2. Drive defensively. Do not assume other drivers will follow traffic rules.

  3. Do not insist on your right-of-way if another driver is challenging you.

  4. Give a tailgater an opportunity to pass you by changing lanes.

  5. Be alert to those who are putting on makeup, talking on car phones, reading, eating or otherwise not paying attention to driving.

  6. Give cars room to merge ahead of you.

  7. Follow these tips to avoid rude or aggressive driving tendencies yourself.

  8. Don't make eye contact with an aggressive driver.

  9. Don't use obscene gestures.

  10. Use your horn sparingly.

  11. Don't block the passing lane.

  12. Don't switch lanes without signaling.

  13. Avoid blocking the right-hand turn lane.

  14. Do not tailgate.

  15. Don't get distracted by the car phone.

  16. Don't play the radio excessively loudly.

  17. Allow plenty of time for your trip.

  18. Driving is transportation, not competition. Want to compete? Find a racetrack.

  19. Be courteous, even when other drivers are not. Retaliating won't get you where you're going any sooner. Don't assume the other driver is out to antagonize you; he or she may just be in a hurry, too.

  20. It's not your job to teach others to drive. If, for example, you block a speeding car to slow it down, you might be inviting trouble. Leave law enforcement to the police.

  21. Make time good instead of making good time. If it takes 25 minutes to get to work, why leave yourself only 15? Leave earlier and don't play beat the clock. If driving makes you impatient, play music or listen to a book on tape to pass the time.

  41. Are you having negative thoughts about another driver? Do you feel justified that you're "in the right"? Then you're in a state of road rage!  To back out of road rage start singing or making silly animal sounds. Then give yourself pep talks about human rights, noble feelings, smarter choices, acceptance of diversity, forgiveness, giving people greater latitude. Think like an Aloha Spirit driver, and you'll act like one!

  42. Anger released is anger increased. Anger transformed is anger dissolved. Anger and indignation weaken your immune system and your heart. Tolerance and humor diffuse anger, reduce stress, and keep you alert. You can make smarter choices and enjoy hassle-free, safer, more pleasant rides. And feel part of the community of drivers.

  1. Don't drive drowsy -- research shows that people are unable to predict when they will fall asleep.

  2. Avoid making eye contact with aggressive drivers -- don't escalate a dangerous situation!

  3. Give bicyclists wide berth -- they sometimes need to maneuver around potholes, opening car doors, and other obstacles.

  4. Stop at red lights -- sounds simple, but red light violators cause thousands of crashes every year!

  5. Avoid distractions while driving -- pull over if you need to use your cell phone.

  6. Pass on the left, drive on the right.

  7. Don't overdrive your headlights at night, especially in areas where animal crossing signs are posted.

  8. Avoid stopping on major highways whenever possible.

  9. Wear your seatbelt at all times.

  10. Don't drive drunk! Appoint a designated driver

 


From:  www.DrDriving.org/about/index.htm

  1. Don't honk at someone.

  2. Don't make an offensive hand gesture.

  3. Don't yell at someone or swear.

  4. Don't rev your engine to indicate displeasure.

  5. Don't shine your high beams in retaliation.

  6. Don't deliberately cut someone off.

  7. Don't tailgate.

  8. Don't brake suddenly to punish a tailgater.

  9. Don't black a lane.

  10. Don't rave.

  11. Don't chase.


From: New Woman Magazine

  1. Divert your attention. Instead of automatically reacting when you feel angry, diffuse your emotions by counting slowly, singing, or making funny animal noises-meow, roar, or moo-for about 10 seconds (best done when you're alone in the car and the windows are up).

  2. Strive for a comfy drive. A pleasant environment wards off stress. Put in a book-on-tape of something you've been meaning to read or treat yourself to a pair of sleek leather driving gloves.

  3. Go with the slow flow. Because driving behavior can be contagious, cruising on the highway in the left lane may make you feel pressured to match an escalating pace. Switch to the right lane and set your own speed.

  4. Consider the cause. Don't assume that other drivers' mistakes are intentional or personal. Reduce your hostility by attributing their offense to something excusable and situational-say, a malfunctioning car or illness.

Name

Symptoms

Remedy

1

Obsessing about slow traffic

Feeling excessively competitive

"Darn, that guy made the light and I didn’t" , "How come that lane is faster than this one" , "Those pedestrians better watch out—I’m coming through" , etc. Tell yourself it’s just a habit from childhood to feel anxious about not winning, or being left behind; Remind yourself it feels good to be civil and helpful

Being over-critical

"Look at that idiot who forgets to turn off his signal" , "I can’t stand it the way he slows down and speeds up, slows down and speeds up" , "How can he pay attention to the road if he’s babbling on the phone" Tell yourself it’s human to make mistakes; Recall to yourself your own mistakes; Remind yourself that patience is a virtue; Try to maneuver your car away from that car

Love of risk taking

Driving Etiquette

Here are some simple Rules of the Road to remember the next time you go out:

  1. When driving, pay attention to the task at hand

  2. Do not stay in the left lane if you are going slower than the traffic to your right

  3. If you are not passing another car, remain in the right lane

  4. If a car is approaching from the rear, flashing its lights, move over as soon as you are able

  5. Do not tailgate, leave a "2 second" space between you and the car ahead of you

  6. Do not slam on your brakes if a car is tailgating you

  7. Do not ride your brakes

  8. Do not change lanes if there is a car in the lane you want to move into going faster than you

  9. Be courtious to others, if you can't make a move without obstructing others on the road don't do it

  10. Check around your car when changing lanes in order to do so safely

  11. When entering an interstate, speed up to match the speed of the oncoming traffic before trying to merge

  12. When leaving an interstate, slow down only when you are totally in the deceleration lane

  13. When moving into a turn lane, wait until you are in the lane to brake

  14. When driving behind someone make sure your high beams are off

  15. Green means GO

  16. Red means STOP

  17. Blue means MOVE TO THE RIGHT (and if it follows you, it means you're screwed)

  18. Use your blinker to signal a lane change, or a turn

  19. Do not forget to turn off your blinker

  20. When encountering a funeral procession, pull over to show respect for the deceased (unless you know the SOB, that is)

  21. And finally for all you tourists out there in happy-go-lucky land, plan your trip before you leave home so you know where you are going


From:  www.drivers.com/issues/roadrage/pepper.html

  1. don't' take traffic problems personally

  2. avoid eye contact with an aggressive driver

  3. don't' make obscene gestures ("that makes you a player and suddenly it begins to escalate")

  4. don't tailgate

  5. use your horn sparingly (the polite honk can be misinterpreted)

  6. don't block the passing lane (some drivers think you're doing something to them when you do this)

  7. don't block the right hand turn lane

  8. allow adequate time for your trip.

  9. create a relaxing and comfortable environment in your car. Play relaxing music (with a beat slower than your heartbeat, one music afficionado suggested).

  10. behave cooperatively, you'll get repaid in kind. If you're aggressive, you trigger in others a natural instinct to fight back and drivers will often try to twart your progress (not let you into a line of traffic, for example)

  11. be diplomatic, you will be able to move through traffic with amazing ease. Sometimes drivers will go out of their way to help you. Driving in congested traffic is really a challenge to your diplomatic skills, and your ability to communicate effectively with others

  12. if you do happen to catch sight of aggressive driving, stay away and contact the authorities when you get the chance. Even if you're not being chased down the highway by a sideswiping maniac, you could be saving a life other than your own.

From:  www.caa.ca/CAAInternet/trafficsafety/aggressivedriving.htm

  1. When you merge, make sure you have plenty of room. Always use your turn signal to show your intentions before making a move. If someone cuts you off, slow down and give them room to merge into your lane.
  2. If you are in the left lane and someone wants to pass, move over and let them by. You may be "in the right" because you are travelling at the speed limit - but you may also be putting yourself in danger by making drivers behind you angry.
  3. Allow at least a two-second space between your car and the car ahead. Drivers may get angry when they are followed too closely. If you feel you are being followed too closely, signal and pull over when safe to do so, allowing the other driver to pass.
  4. Use your horn rarely, if ever.
  5. Keep your hands on the wheel and avoid making any gestures that might anger another driver. That includes "harmless" expressions of irritation like shaking your head.
  6. If another driver is acting angry, don’t make eye contact.
  7. Give angry drivers lots of room. If another driver tries to pick a fight, put as much distance between you as possible. And, remember "it takes two to tango". One angry driver can’t start a fight unless another driver is willing to join in.
  8. Get help if you believe an angry driver is following you or is trying to start a fight. If you have a cellular phone, use it to call the police. Otherwise, drive to a place where there are people around, such as a police station, convenience store, shopping center, or even a hospital. Do not get out of your car. Do not go home.

From: www.unf.edu/dept/upd/newsoct.htm

  1. First, make every attempt to get out of his or her way.

  2. Put your pride away. Don’t challenge an aggressive driver by speeding up or attempting to hold-your-own in your travel lane.

  3. Avoid eye contact with the aggressive driver, it may be perceived as a challenge.

  4. Ignore gestures and refuse to return or acknowledge them. Stay cool.

  5. Don’t block the high speed or passing lane. If you’re being tailgated, move over.

  6. Wear your seat belt. It will hold you in your seat and behind the wheel in case you need to make an abrupt driving maneuver and it will protect you in a crash.

  7. Above all, never underestimate the other driver’s capacity for violence in any form.

  8. Don’t take traffic problems personally.

  9. Make your drive less stressful. Give yourself extra time to reach your destination.

  10. Evaluate your emotions before getting behind the wheel.

  11. Take a break if you feel yourself getting tense.

  12. Is what you’re listening to grating your nerves? If so, change it. Try listening to something more relaxing.

  13. Drive defensively. Don’t become an offender of rude road manners.

  14. Most important, choose not to get angry. You are the only one who controls your emotions.

From the New Testament:

  1. Blessed are the meek: for they shall inherit the earth.

  2. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.

  3. Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

  4. Blessed are the pure in heart: for they shall see God.

  5. Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.

  6. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.

  7. But I say unto you, That whosoever is angry with his brother without a cause shall be in danger of the judgment: and whosoever shall say to his brother, Raca, shall be in danger of the council: but whosoever shall say, Thou fool, shall be in danger of hell fire.

  8. Agree with thine adversary quickly, whiles thou art in the way with him; lest at any time the adversary deliver thee to the judge, and the judge deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison.
