    How road rage can manifest itself in supermarket car parks


    Supermarkets are a place of a necessity. They are places you go when you need something and not often because you just want to browse. This means that it is often very crowded and hectic. Due to this, the car park of the supermarket can be just as manic and crowded and this is when car accidents are caused.

    How are road traffic accidents caused in a supermarket car park?

    There are many ways a car accident happens in a supermarket car park. They can be caused by drivers being distracted and not looking where they are going or they can be caused by road rage. If you are in a long queue waiting to get out of the car park or to find a space this can often be quite stressful especially if you are limited for time. This is when the ugliness of road rage rears its head which can easily lead to traffic accident claims.

    How can I reduce my road rage?

    The biggest way you can reduce road rage, thus possibly preventing a car crash, is by avoiding the peak times for supermarkets. These are usually weekends and straight after work. If you can’t avoid the peak times, try and go when you aren’t restricted to time. This will mean you won’t be stressing out about how long it is taking to find a space.

    However, if you do find yourself getting annoyed or stressed then put some music on or open the window for some fresh air to help you calm down. If it helps, count to ten to relieve your stress and avoid a car collision injury.

    If you should end up having a car accident that wasn’t your fault then you may be able to make a claim for compensation.
