What IS Road Rage?

               Do You Have Road Rage?

There is no true definition for it. It's more of a term used to characterize the attitude exhibited when a motorist loses their temper as a reaction to a traffic incident. The incident can be something as slight as a person moving into their lane or driving slowly in the fast lane.

Road rage is more typical of aggressive drivers. These drivers tend to drive faster and change lanes more often. They want to be the first one off the line at the traffic light and want the fast lane to themselves.

 Some  Symptoms of Aggressive Driving & Road Rage Are:  

Mentally condemning or thought of violence toward other drivers.

Verbally expressing condemnation of other drivers to passengers in your vehicle.

Not obeying traffic safety rules because you don't agree with them.

Engage in aggressive and risky driving:

Following too close.
Weaving in and out of traffic.

Speeding up to beat a traffic light.

Cutting between vehicles to change lanes.

Using the horn excessively.

Flashing headlights excessively at oncoming traffic.

Braking to get others to back off your bumper.

Passing another driver, then slowing to teach them a lesson.

When another driver gets your ire up.... Think FIDO : Forget It And Drive ON !!
