However, with so many people trying to score a good deal, the roads and parking lots surrounding shopping centers are often packed with hurried and frustrated drivers.

As Fort Myers injury lawyers, we know this can be a recipe for aggressive driving, including honking the horn, flashing headlights, tailgating, and cutting off other drivers. Therefore, we encourage drivers to stay calm and focused. A serious accident is no way to start the holiday season.

Below are some tips to keep “road rage” in check:

  • Keep a cool head
  • Avoid eye contact
  • Never make obscene gestures
  • Do not use your vehicle to intimidate others
  • Do not become frustrated or stressed out—if you do, remove yourself from the situation
  • Never get behind the wheel if you are tired or irritable
  • Avoid confrontation
  • If you witness something you think is road rage, call police
