Do you have road rage?

I do get raged, however I try to control myself. I have a commute that is 1 - 1/2 hours in the morning and about 1 hour in the evening I also live in a rural area with few passing zones. I get very upset if I get caught behind someone that is holding me up. Although I am enraged inside I know there is nothing I can do about it. I feel if someone does not have enough confidence in themselves or their vehicle; they should not be out in rush hour traffic until they gain the confidence. It happened this morning, in fact and I was in a panic over being late and looseing my job. When I finally reached the highway, Did I speed? A little, about 7 mph over the speed limit. Did I drive as if I wanted to run everyone over? Absolutely not!

Not really...of course, it's normal to express our disgust over some crazy drivers, but it should not affect my driving because in the long run, I'd be in the losing end. The best way is to be a defensive driver, be careful about what other drivers do next so as not to cause an accident. Road rage can often cause accidents, so we better not give in to it....
