How to Deal with Road Rage

drivingWe’ve all experienced those brief moments of anger at somebody else’s bad driving, or experienced anger targeted at us. But it’s important to keep our road rage in check to avoid unnecessary accidents.

How to Deal with Your Own Road Rage:

  • If you get angry at someone else’s driving, deal with road rage by first recognizing that you’re getting angry. Take some deep breaths to try to calm down; if that doesn’t work, pull over. It might be best to distance yourself from that driver.
  • Don’t tailgate, even if you think the other driver “deserves” it. You might end up hitting them and would be at fault.
  • Listen to music, because it’s pretty hard to be angry when you’re belting out your favorite song.

How to Deal With Someone Else’s Road Rage:

  • If someone is trying to get your attention, avoid eye contact with them. Acknowledging them says to them that you want to “participate” in a fight.
  • Drive defensively because some people with bad road rage could try to hurt you or your car.
  • Note the car’s plate number because if they act very aggressively, you’ll want to report them later.
  • No matter what, try to get away from them, even if it means arriving to your destination late.

AutoTrader’s “Must-Test Drive” awards go out to a small number of vehicles that you simply must test drive. Basically, it’s a “don’t judge a book by its cover” list of vehicles that you should test drive before passing them up.

So why was the Kia Sedona awarded a spot on this list? It has an ample list of standard safety features to keep everyone safe, plus plenty of technology and convenience features to make every drive more enjoyable. And it doesn’t lack quality or style, either.

“Even though the Kia Sedona is an ultra-functional minivan, it manages to be quite stylish as well, and to our eyes, it’s the best looking minivan available,” said Brian Moody, executive editor of AutoTrader.
