Road Rage: How to Avoid it

Comments Off

This past week, I had at least three conversations with people about things that they are seeing on the roads. I'm not sure if it's the heat, school coming up, or maybe the full moon, but seems like people have been driving crazy lately. So looking around, I came upon a great list of suggestions from WXOW out of Lacrosse:

– Get out of their way, and stay calm.

– Do not challenge them and try to avoid eye contact. These actions will provoke them and could make the situation worse.

– Ignore gestures, and don't return them.

– Buckle up. A seat belt is important to maintain proper seating position in the case of abrupt driving maneuvers.

– Call 9-1-1. You should report aggressive driving. Be ready with the vehicle description, license number, and location.

There is no reason to add to the problem by getting more deeply involved. Also your calm and safe reaction can do a lot to deescalate many of these situations.
