The Dallas Police say I am responsible for my bullying.

Road Rage Reduction

I read an article on a Dallas police site about “Road Rage”, and it got me wanting to blog about road rage.  Of course I want some sort of “Measure” of  my road rage.  Some sort of rage-o-meter showing how close I am to  being on either side of road rage.

Lets begin with my driving. Lately, I find that I drive exactly 5 over the limit,  which according to the Dallas police, is a cause of road rage.  This is like saying, “I act timid, so I am a bully magnet”, thus I am at fault, not the bully.

Thus, slower drivers cause road-rage.

Perhaps. But even as I annoy the people behind me, I have not caused road-rage due to the following tips:

Author turns all 3 mirrors away for peace of mind. This is especially true if you are a low car and get big cars on your bumper.

Tip 1

Turn all your mirrors away so you can’t see whose behind you. This is odd, but stay with me and judge if you must. Only when I approach a turn do I reposition one mirror briefly, then after the turn, I tilt it away again.  This way, I can’t see anyone behind me. For example, when you tailgate me, I don’t know and don’t care and best of all, I don’t get mad or react. This of course causes you to pass and cut me off. I haven’t seen you in my rear view mirror fuming and cussing, so I don’t know whats brewing, so the cut off doesn’t bother me.

I told my workmate about turning mirrors away for peace of mind, and suprisingly enough she said, she also turns their mirrors away.

Comment below if you do too.
