Avoid road rage and the car accidents it can cause
Road rage causes car accidents, car accidents cause personal injuries, personal injuries can often lead to death and death, as we all know, is terrible. So it's fairly safe to surmise, therefore, that road rage is bad. Very bad.
But as bad as it is and no matter how much heartache it can cause, road rage continues to happen on a daily basis throughout the UK. Thousands upon thousands of examples of it occur every hour and the result is often a road traffic accident.
The sad thing about it all is that it's completely unnecessary. Road rage doesn't need to happen and if everyone took a deep breath then the roads would be a much safer place and there would be far fewer car accidents.
Road rage advice
In an attempt to rid the world of the scourge of road rage, The Claim Solicitors, the UK personal injury claim experts, have come up with some tips and advice to keep you out of trouble and make your journey pass without the threat of violence and aggression.
- Never react to another driver's actions, no matter how ridiculous their driving or how much they've annoyed you.
- Be courteous and polite, even when others choose not to be.
- Never make eye contact with an irate driver.
- Always ask yourself if the other driver 'committed their crime intentionally'. Is it possible that they simply made a mistake?
- Never underestimate another motorist's capacity for causing havoc.
- Don't use violent or abusive gestures.
- If you find yourself being followed by an angry driver, do not go home but head for a busy public place or the closest police station.
- Never leave your vehicle to confront another motorist.
- Keep your doors locked and your windows up if an aggressive driver approaches your vehicle.
- Ensure you're stress-free whilst driving by giving yourself plenty of time to get to your destination and making sure that you know where you're going.
