Rising Temperatures and Tempers in Las Vegas: How to Avoid Road Rage
Driving is already dangerous and adding anger to the equation can make people excessively careless on the road. Some drivers succumb to stress in negative ways. They speed up, drive more aggressively and stop quickly, recklessly changing lanes and swerving. The enraged driver is ultimately dangerous.
Stopping yourself from making bad decisions under the guise of road rage can save lives. It is important to understand how to deal with road rage when you find yourself becoming angry behind the wheel.
Avoid the following actions to avoid being the victim of road rage:
Reckless lane changes
Using high beam lights
Verbally engaging with other drivers
Cutting other drivers off
Improper use of lanes
Dealing with Road Rage: Sometimes there is nothing you can do to stop yourself from being around a person with road rage. In these cases, distance yourself as much as possible. If the driver will not leave you alone, you must defuse the situation. If you are ever threatened, or fear for your life, consider calling the police.
