Beware aggressive drivers
Whether you are the passenger stuck in the car with someone who is behaving aggressively, or a driver coming up against a someone driving aggressively you should try not to further aggravate that person. Aggression causes many Methil car accident claims to be raised. Keeping your self calm is important, even though you may be very angry.
Diffusing the situation
No matter how cross you may be, if you’re facing an aggressive driver you should do your best to diffuse the situation by:
- Talking to them calmly. If you are in the car with an aggressive driver, you should try to help them to calm down by speaking to them in soothing tones, and talking them through what they are feeling so that they are aware of it and make an effort to calm down.
- Pulling over. If you are driving and there is another driver acting aggressively, the best thing you can do to try to avoid an accident and save yourself and your passenger from possible injury, is to pull over and let them pass. Even if they pull over with you, this is safer than having a confrontation on the road.
- Staying calm yourself. If you are panicking and in the car with an aggressive driver, your mood may affect their mood. It could make matters much worse. Try to remain calm so that you can radiate peace back at them, helping to affect their mood and helping them to calm down.
- Don’t be aggressive in response. You can’t fight aggression with aggression. You will only be adding fuel to an already lit fire. You need to be non-confrontational.
