How To Keep Your Emotions From Taking Over Your Driving

 

 
The American Automobile Association suggests some ways to help keep your emotions from taking over your driving. Keep a mature attitude. Make a conscious effort to put your emotions aside and concentrate on driving every time you get behind the wheel. Identify trouble spots.

Know in advance what traffic situations bother you. Rush hour traffic for instance. When you hit rush hour traffic, react maturely. Tell yourself, “I won’t let this get to me”. Plan ahead. Plan a route that will avoid stressful situations. Leave early and give yourself enough time to get to where you need to be without rushing. Expect other people to make mistakes, because they will. Just accept it.

Don’t drive when you’re upset. If you’re angry or emotionally upset you won’t be able to concentrate as well on driving. Wait until you calm down before you get behind the wheel. Don’t drive when you are depressed. Depression can make driving dangerous. Train yourself. Get in the habit of keeping your emotions and you driving in check. Finally, if another driver shows aggression toward you, be careful.
