Road rage happens when a driver has a short temper regarding the things that go on around them. Normally, this leads to explosive reactions that could be very dangerous, since they could cause disastrous mistakes, not to mention, they put a strain on the drivers' and passengers' well-being. Road rage tends to increase during the hotter months, since people get hot and bothered.

How to Avoid Road Rage

Plan Your Drives Wisely

The first step to avoid road rangers and the dangers it can bring is to plan your drives wisely. Knowing what you have to do, where you need to go, and how you're going to get there can offer you a lot of peace of mind. Not only that, but planning allows you to prepare for unforeseen situations behind the wheel that could send you over the edge. For example, you should try leaving for your destination with plenty of extra time. This way, you will have enough time to get there even if you come across unexpected event. Being stressed and in a rush can increase the instances of road rage. If you can, you can even choose to take a calm route to get to your destination. Even if it'll take you a little bit longer to get there, going through a less transited route will reduce the confrontations with other drivers. Lastly, even though it won't always be possible, you should avoid going out when the heat is harshest (which is 11 am and 5 pm), so you don't get heated up and more prone to explosive behavior.

Keep a Calming Environment Inside Your Vehicle

The world outside of your vehicle can be falling down (with road raging drivers, honks, traffic, heat, and plenty of other stress-inducing situations). Still, if you do a good job of keeping a more soothing and calming environment inside of your vehicle, it's likely you'll be able to cruise through all of it unscathed. To create that zen place inside your vehicle you can start by playing music that puts you in a happy mood (be it something calm, or something upbeat). Make sure that the music won't distract you completely from what's going on outside, as that can be dangerous, too. Still, it's better to sing out loud than to start yelling at others. And since the hot weather outside may be making people crazy, try to keep a cooler temperature inside. Turn your AC on to ensure you also have a cooler attitude towards other drivers and situations. Having a soothing spot inside may also include practicing meditation techniques or breathing exercises while you're driving around. These will lower your nervous energy and give you more mental clarity.

Make sure your engine is healthy, strong, and unbothered by road ragers with the best synthetic oil in Jackson: AMSOIL Signature Series 5W-30 Synthetic Motor Oil.

Let a Few Things Go

Listen, there are some times in which you need to react to whatever is going on around you. For example, you may need to honk at someone how's about to hit you. After all, that's what the honk is there for. Still, a lot of the times you will just have to let a few things go. Did someone cut you off? As long as they didn't hit you. Are you driving behind someone who's going really slow? Simply move to another lane. Taking the high road can prevent a lot of accidents and unpleasant situations. Tied to that point, you also need to let go of road rage that's aimed at you. When people are raging out on the road, you can bet one will turn their anger at you: they may honk, start to spew insults, and throw their vehicle at you. However, if you know you didn't do anything wrong, you should just let it go. It's not worth it to engage into road rage and get into a fight. Don't listen to them, don't even look at them. Keep on your merry way completely unbothered. To sum up, control your behavior to those exterior circumstances.
