Road Rage situations can get out of control very quickly
In this case, the street vendor did not respond violently and kept requesting politely. In case he would have also done something then the result could have been different. Road rage can escalate very quickly and things can get out of hand in a blink of an eye. It is very important that you keep a calm mind in such situations.
Prevention is better than cure
A person gets angry most of the time because he or she is getting late to reach somewhere. So, it is better that you always leave on time or a before time. This time you will have enough time to reach the destination on time and your mind will stay calm. Travelling with extra time will keep you relaxed.
Slow down, let other pass you who are in hurry, keep your mind calm and try to enjoy the drive. Drive smoothly and allow other drivers to smoothly merge. If you are on a roundabout then the drivers coming from the right side have a right of way so let them pass. If you see a car in front of you trying to come into your lane, let them come. All of this will help in avoiding accidents and road rage situations.
Even if something happens, you should be the bigger person so apologise, smile and move on. This can prevent a situation which can escalate into a full-blown argument. If the other driver is being aggressive, it is important that you do not lose your control and do not react. It is important that you stay calm and try to get out of the situation as soon as possible.
