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:
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.

A wedding anniversary was turned upside down when Julie Eberly was headed towards the beach with her husband, Ryan Eberly (Sederstrom). Not seeing the car behind him, Ryan switched lanes and accidentally pushed another driver, Dejywan Floyd, off the road (“Arrest Made in Lumberton”). Upon getting back on the highway, …
Why is this person driving so slow? Did that driver just cut ahead of me? These thoughts likely roam one’s mind during road rage or accelarousal, when one becomes stressed due to acceleration events (Huynh et al. 2). These stimuli might be mundane and brief, “such as entering a highway …
