Road rage and aggression
Remember to always be the better person in any given scenario. You can always talk it out and solve the problem then and there, but there is also the legal but lengthier way to solve it. In the end, prevention is always better than cure. So, try to avoid the possibility of getting in a rage so you won’t have to endure any of these two scenarios.
What is road rage?
Road rage refers to the “uncontrolled anger” of a motorist, usually over another motorist, causing him to feel infuriated, and elicits an aggressive or angry response. This seems to be quite petty especially if the motorist is quite short tempered.
What is aggressive driving?
Aggressive driving, on the other hand, is a very different case compared to road rage. This term refers to a traffic offense that any driver can be guilty of. Especially if they are not thinking straight. This is usually done by a driver with no intention of causing harm. Examples of aggressive driving cases are running red lights, tailgating, and speeding. Revenge mentality.
