Interested in handling your road rage on the road? Tired of dealing with other’s anger behind the wheel? Whether you are looking to calm your own road rage or deal with someone else’s, we here at Irvine Auto Center want to help keep you and your fellow drivers safe. Keep on reading to find out the best way to deal with your own or others anger issues behind the wheel.

Calm your Road Rage with these Steps

One of the first things you can do is to take your time and be prepared. Anger tends to build up inside you when you are rushed, haven’t gotten enough sleep, etc. By giving yourself enough time to get to your destination, even planning it so you arrive early, you avoid rushing to where you are going and are often more relaxed while driving. The next step to calm your road rage is to give other drivers the benefit of the doubt. Even when other drivers are doing things that annoy you, take a few calming breaths. No matter what is going on, drive the same way you want others to drive around you. Let people merge, use the left lane for passing only, always use your turn signals, etc. – do everything that you can to create a calm environment. Use air fresheners with a calming scent, listen to the radio, but be mindful of what you are listening to and how loud you are listening to it. Most importantly, don’t respond to aggressive driving with your own aggressive driving.

Dealing with other’s Road Rage

One of the most important things to remember when it comes to dealing with other people’s road rage is to not let their actions trigger you. If you let what they do get the best of you, you are going to become part of the problem. You need to bear in mind that their actions are not a personal attack against you. When dealing with other’s road rage the best thing you can do is get out of their way. Take a few deep breaths and relax so that you are less likely to respond to their actions. Reassuring yourself and using positive self-talk is another way to ensure you don’t react or respond aggressively to their actions.
