The incident happened in Sarjapur Road in Bengaluru. A car driver, who was travelling with his two colleagues was stopped by a few men in the middle of the road. The dashboard camera footage shows the men blocking the car and saying something angrily in Kannada.

After heated discussions, and attempts by the men to hit the glass of the car to either break it or to scare the occupants of the car, the driver of the car simply pressed the accelerator and zoomed ahead. The miscreants had put the scooter in front of the car to block the way. However, after the car hit the scooter and dragged it for a few hundred metres, the driver finally got rid of it by reversing and driving again.

Avoid road rage

It’s important to remain calm and avoid engaging with aggressive drivers on the road. Road rage can escalate quickly, so it’s crucial to have a cool head while driving. Here are some tips to prevent road rage incidents:

  • Stay relaxed: Make your driving experience enjoyable by switching on the music and the air conditioner. Take deep breaths and try to be in a positive mood.
  • Follow traffic rules: Stick to the speed limit, use your signals when changing lanes, and regularly check your rearview mirrors. Allow room for others’ mistakes or aggressive behavior.
  • Be polite: Give way to vehicles coming from the right at roundabouts and let cars merge into your lane when they signal. Avoid closing gaps when another driver is trying to enter your lane.
  • Ignore aggressive drivers: Some drivers may exhibit aggressive behavior like excessive honking, tailgating, or abruptly changing lanes. Instead of challenging them or trying to teach them a lesson, let them go and hope that karma catches up with them.
  • Stay focused: Keep your mind occupied with positive thoughts. Think about your friends and family to quickly calm your nerves and divert your attention from any road rage incidents.

It is important to prioritize your safety and the safety of others on the road. Stay calm, drive responsibly, and avoid unnecessary confrontations with aggressive drivers.
