Avoiding Road Rage
Don't let yourself get drawn into a confrontation
Below are a few suggestions to keep yourself from getting emotionally (or worse, physically) involved:
Above all, always use your seat belt! Seat belt use saves 9,500 lives annually.
| ||Avoid eye contact!|
| ||If you need to use your horn, do it sparingly.|
| ||Get out of the way. Even if the other guy is speeding, it's safest to not make a point by staying in your lane.|
| ||If someone is following you after an on-the-road encounter, drive to a public place or the nearest police station.|
| ||Report any aggressive driving incidents to the police department immediately. You may be able to prevent further occurrences by the same driver.|
If you follow the steps above, you can contribute to safer driving on the roads. There are also several preventative measures underway to address the problem on a grand scale.
