I sometimes feel angry at other drivers that do things that they shouldn't, like cutting you off. Or they thing think the have the right and shout at you even if you have the right. With all other things that you feel they are doing wrong, how do you avoid such confrontation and possibly road rage?

Hi! I understand completely. There are a lot of terrible drivers out there, but there are also a lot of nut jobs, too, who wouldn't think twice about assaulting you. I know it's frustrating, but the best thing to do is just keep you hands on the wheel, don't make any gestures, and keep your eyes on the road, just watch where you are driving and avoid looking at or making eye contact with other drivers. I learned this from my brother, who dealt with a lot of road rage in a large metro area where he used to live. He found that these tips worked for him. I hope this helps you, too.
