10 Tips to Prevent Road Rage

  1. Don't retaliate. Never take the other driver personally, he/she is only reacting on a road rage instinct.
  2. Don't make eye contact with an angry driver.
  3. Before you react to anything that is done to you please ask yourself, "Is getting back at this person worth my life?"
  4. Be polite and courteous, even when others are not.
  5. Always ask yourself, "Could the other driver have possible made a mistake?"
  6. If you are harassed by another driver and being followed, do not go home. Go to the nearest police department.
  7. Slow down and relax!
  8. Never underestimate other drivers capacity for mayhem.
  9. Reduce your driving stress by allowing enough time to get where you are going. Know the roads that are under construction and listen to weather reports that may cause traffic delays. Practice patience and keep your cool.
  10. Remember that you cannot control the drivers around you, but you can control the way they affect your well-being. Be calm and drive safely.
