  • WHO ARE ROAD RAGE OFFENDERS ? frustrated on the highway as a result of some other drivers actions. This is a seminar designed to inform you of what road rage is and assist you in developing coping strategies

The following actions have been consistently linked to the cause of road rage:


Slide13 l.jpg

--CUTTING PEOPLE OFF:

Always signal your intentions and ensure you have plenty of room to execute your move. If you accidentally cut someone off attempt an apology with an appropriate gesture. If you are cut off, keep in mind it was probably unintentional and allow the driver in and make space as to keep a safe following distance.

-- Drive appropriately in the left hand lane,

Even if one is traveling at the speed limit, allow drivers who want to drive faster drive in the left lane. Avoid putting yourself in danger. Drivers may become hostile if slower motorists do not make way for those driving faster.

--TAILGATING:

Don’t follow anyone too closely. Drivers become intimidated by drivers appearing to be too close behind them and may take aggressive action to make the other motorist aware of their discomfort to your proximity. Allow a safe following distance. ( Count to 3 one-thousandths). Drivers being tailgated should not slam on the brakes as an accident may occur, but allow the party to pass.

--GESTURES:

Avoid making hostile gestures to other motorists when unhappy about the situation that has occurred. Gestures speak loudly to other motorists and may bring on other more aggressive actions. What may have been thought as a harmless gesture, done out of frustration may have been “the straw that broke the camels back”.

(Horn honking, hand gestures)
