Nearly Run Over By A Porche, well let’s face it there are worse things to be run over with but this is was a typical case of Road Rage and is not acceptable.
The worst thing was I was on a zebra crossing at the time, half way across when it coming straight at me, luckily enough I managed to get across. He flew by with a look of thunder on his face, I could see he looked pretty angry full of road rage.
THE DEFINITION OF ROAD RAGE
Is aggressive or angry behaviour by a driver of an automobile or another road vehicle which includes rude gestures, verbal insults, physical threats or dangerous driving methods targeted toward another driver in an effort to intimidate or release frustration. Road rage can lead to altercations, assaults and collisions that result in serious physical injuries or even death. It can be thought of as an extreme case of aggressive driving.
When you are behind a vehicle you are in charge of a dangerous machine and should be in full control, mentally, emotionally & physically.
If you are feeling angry do not get behind the wheel, calm down first.
Try not to be late all the time causing stress and rushing leading to frantic driving.
Remember it is often not the other person’s fault but yours. Even if it is not your fault you do not have the right to hurt or abuse others. Think about how you would feel if a person close to you was a victim of Road Rage.
Behind all cases of anger, there is a cause, anger is a symptom, you need to get to the root cause of the problem and sort it out.
