Public Safety and Road Rage

In recent years, aggressive driving has increased. When provoked, aggressive, angry drivers have been known to commit acts of violence, commonly known as road rage. There is a difference between aggressive driving and road rage. Aggressive driving is a traffic offense; road rage is a criminal offense.Agn incident, which occurred on a roadway. Road rage requires willful and wanton disregard for the safety of others.What can you at habits you need to improve on to be a more courteous driver:

No one drives courteously and without mistakes all the time. These questions are good to keep in mind when driving, because they’ll remind you to think how your driving impacts others. If just a few more drivers start thinking about how they affect others, the streets and freeways will be a nicer and safer place to spend your commuting time. Also, in order to avoid situations with a driver you suspect may be violent, there are precautions you as a driver should take every time you get behind the wheel.

Avoid offending other drivers. Actions which commonly provoke drivers to commit acts of violence include:
* Being cut off by other vehicles,

* Being tailgated,

* Drivers who do not signal their turns or lane changes,

* Driving behind a slow-moving vehicle in the fast lane of traffic,

* Drivers who do not pay attention because of cellular phone use, looking for an address, applying makeup or being overcautious,

* Drivers stopping in a traffic lane to pick-up or drop-off passengers,

* Motorcyclists splitting traffic,

* Improper use of hi-beam headlights,

* Inconsiderate municipal bus and taxicab drivers, and

* Being the object of obscene gestures.

Do not engage other drivers. Avoid engaging other drivers, even if they have done something to make you angry or vice versa. Put as much distance between you and the other driver as possible and avoid making eye contact. Never pull off the roadway to confront another driver.

Steer Clear – Give angry drivers lots of room. Do not, under any circumstances, pull off to the side of the road and try to settle things.

Avoid eye contact – If another driver is acting angry with you, don’t make eye contact. Looking or staring at another driver can turn an impersonal encounter between two vehicles into a personal

Get help – If you believe the other driver is following you or is trying to start a fight, get help. 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. Use your horn to get someone’s attention. This will usually discourage an aggressor. Do not get out of your car. Do not go home.

As always, please feel free to call me or email me.
