I’ve been seeing an increase in the number of stories about road rage incidents in past months. Additionally, I’ve been getting more calls than I have in some time to be interviewed by various media. Here’s a recent story that is getting a lot of attention, most likely because the victim of the violence was a military veteran and popular member of his community:
We don’t know the details, and the police are still looking for the perpetrator, however, it’s another example of why–no matter how you feel about another person’s driving behavior–it’s safer to get somewhere with other people nearby rather than pull over and take the risk that the other person will be violent and armed. A tragic loss and another harsh reminder to manage your own anger as safety the best you can out there on the roads.
