12 Tips on how to drive defensively.

How many times do you see wrongs done on the road either to you or others?   It is easy to retaliate, but that is the first step in escalating a confrontation into road rage. You may want to practice these 6 easy steps and prevent any dangerous situation while behind the wheel.


1.  Listen to the right kind of music.

     Music has a huge effect on our emotions.  While   

     listening to pump up music can get you feeling all

     sorts of strong emotions, soothing music may just

     be the perfect thing to keep you cool when driving. 


2.   Give yourself some extra time.

      If you allow yourself some extra time to get to your

      destination, your drive will be much more

      comfortable because you are not in a rush.  Try and

      keep a schedule to make sure you'll not only arrive

     on time, but have no road rage incidents.


3.  Car Pool.

     You're probably wondering, how can this help me

     stay calm when driving?  Often times, if the people

     in the car are co-workers or acquaintances, people

     tend to reduce their road rage because they don't

     want others seeing them in such conditions. 


4.  Get enough rest.

     We can all relate to the fact that when we are tired,

     we tend to get grumpy. Make sure you've gotten

     enough rest each night before driving the next day. 

     It is more important than you think!


5.  Try to develop driver empathy.

     A good tip we always recommend is to give the

     other driver the benefit of the doubt.  You never

     really know what is going on in their life, so before

     you roll down your window and start screaming,

     think about how they're feeling too.


6.  Pull over and take a break.

     Driving while you are road raged can often times be

     as bad as driving buzzed or drowsy.  If you begin to

     get angry or upset, take a pit stop and calm yourself

     down for a few minutes before getting back on the

     road.
