SURVIVING ROAD RAGE: Survival Steps To Avoid Being a Victim
Most drivers have been there: a fellow motorist is aggressively changing lanes, tailgating, and generally making the road unsafe for everyone else on the road. This behavior can also include speeding, stopping suddenly, honking the horn excessively, and flashing headlights at other vehicles. Hostile drivers can make an already stressful situation much worse.
“Road rage” is an American term that first began appearing in news stories in the late 1980s when a series of aggressive driving accidents and shootings occurred on highways near several major cities. Road rage is the criminal behavior that occurs when aggressive driving goes unchecked and begins affecting other motorists.
