Stay calm during a traffic jam – injury solicitors Fetcham
Traffic jams can be extremely frustrating and lead to all sorts of accidents and injuries. Many of these accidents will be caused by people becoming impatient when stuck in a traffic jam and trying to move ahead when there isn’t space or the opportunity. People can also become victims of road rage when they are stuck in a traffic jam, as the impatience builds and the cars do not seem to be moving at all. Here are some tips on remaining calm if you do get stuck in a traffic jam.
- Distract yourself. Although it is unusual to actually plan to be distracted in a car, during a traffic jam is the one occasion that this is OK! Listen to music, talk on the phone, eat a sandwich. Basically do all of the things you usually forbid yourself from doing in the car, to keep yourself amused.
- Know that the traffic jam will eventually end. You cannot be stuck in a traffic jam forever. Eventually whatever is causing the jam will be moved out of the way and you will be free of the jam and on the way to completing your journey. This can help to keep you calm.
- Breathe. Getting worked up usually goes hand in hand with breathing quickly and irregularly. Make sure to focus on your breathing and breathe in and out deeply. This will automatically cause your body to relax.
- Avoid confrontation with other drivers. If you can see others getting agitated, just keep out of their way and avoid getting into confrontation with them. This will prevent you from getting hurt and also stop you from becoming the victim of someone else’s road rage.
