Things you have
to be aware of:
Even though road rage is rare, sadly they
do exist. The most trivial of incidents can spark a road
rage situation, so to help reduce your chances of becoming
involved in a road rage incident, drive with consideration
for others, keep your distance from other vehicles and try
to avoid eye contact with other drivers. If you are confronted,
we recognize that it is not easy but try and remain calm
and don't react angrily or with violent gestures.
Keep an eye on your belongings:
If possible take someone else with you, especially when
driving at night on unfamiliar roads. Lock all valuables
and bags in the boot. Smaller items you need to keep handy
should be kept in the glove compartment or out of sight
under a seat. If you must keep items nearby, secure them
with a seat belt - through the handle of a briefcase or
bag for example. This will also protect occupants from flying
objects in a collision.
If you have one, use a mobile phone to let
someone else have your car details. Have useful numbers
pre-programmed into your mobile so that you can call someone
quickly if necessary.
