The AAA offered tips to help prevent road rage:
• Don't offend. Never cause another driver to change their speed or direction. That means not forcing another driver to use their brakes, or turn the steering wheel in response to something you have done.
• Be tolerant and forgiving: The other driver may just be having a really bad day. Assume that it's not personal.
• Do not respond: Avoid eye contact, don't make gestures, maintain space around your vehicle and contact 9-1-1 if needed...
