Avoid causing traffic jams
Unless you have a road accident in West Wales then it is difficult to cause a traffic jam on your own. However, every car in a traffic jam is contributing to it in its own way, and this makes the congestion worse and slows down other cars, who then contribute to the problem and so on. In the mornings and evenings when the roads are the most busy, it is all too easy to contribute to traffic jams and find yourself taking longer and longer to get to and from work. Here are some tips on avoiding traffic congestion, and avoiding causing it yourself.
During rush hour it can be tempting to be more aggressive in your driving, so that you get where you need to be. The problem is if everyone is doing this then congestion quickly builds up because nobody is willing to let anyone else get past. Relax and be courteous to other drivers, and you may find that they do the same back to you.
Don’t react to anger
When people are rushing and stressed they tend to get angry more easily. When this happens you may find that other drivers are aggressive towards you. If this happens, apologise and move on, as reacting to the anger can cause arguments which slow everything down and ruin your day!
Don’t get distracted
Obviously you wouldn’t normally talk on the phone, eat or apply makeup when you are driving, but in a traffic jam it can be tempting to do just that. Resist the temptation, as this can slow everyone down if you are not paying attention.
