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.

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.
