Statistics show that drivers are the principle cause of road accidents. Road rage in particular steals your attention off the road, and drivers who are consumed with anger are more likely to make hasty decisions regarding their safety and the safety of others.
Road rage continues to be a disturbing issue on American highways as well as local roadways. Let’s face it; everyone is late for something nowadays, and the rush is always there to reach the destination in the quickest time possible. This type of driving can often leave motorists prone to road rage, and as such the drivers can place their vehicles and those of others in precarious and dangerous situations.
Although it may seem impossible at the time, it is always the better option to agree to arrive late as opposed to never arriving at all due to a fatality. Aggressive driving puts you and your passengers at risk of injury and death as well as putting at risk the lives of anyone else that is on the road. When driving aggressively on highways, many motorists will fail to take adequate precaution when making lane changes. This can result in collisions and may lead to casualties and even death.
Sadly, even for motorists that drive carefully and are aware of other drivers on the road, they can become the innocent victims in someone else’s road rage incident. For this reason it is best to know what vehicles and objects are around your vehicle at all times. The use of blind spot mirrors – and in particular MaxiView’s stick on blind spot mirrors will create much better vision of who and what is within your vehicles radius. Certainly, knowing what other drivers are likely to do is often unpredictable but being able to react in time to their erratic driving can often mean the difference of life and death for unsuspecting motorists.
