Road Rage Should Be A Myth

Road rage.  We’ve probably all heard the term.

You’re in traffic, the person in front of or behind you does something stupid in their car, and you “fly off the handle” and do something out of the norm.

You’re expressing your rage towards the other driver.

Sometimes this leads to serious consequences, like a driver pulling out a gun on another driver and shooting them.  Road rage usually gets picked up by the mainstream media each time it happens.

It should be a myth.

Can’t we slow down long enough to realize people in other vehicles will make mistakes, not know where they are going, or go slower than you expect?

Can we slow down enough to realize that we need to breath, and control the urge to express rage towards another driver?

Can we just slow down and enjoy the drive?
