MD of MasterDrive, Eugene Herbert, cautions drivers not to take their lockdown stress on the road.
He said aggressive driving can change to road rage very quickly, especially when you are dealing with other stress in your life, like lockdown. Herbert defines aggressive driving as “the act of committing numerous traffic offences while driving but does not include the violence of road rage”.
“So, while you may believe your driving is harmless because you do not threaten someone with violence, it is still very dangerous and can result in a crash. It also raises the stress level of both other drivers and yourself. Next time you get behind the wheel, ask yourself if you are guilty of any of the below behaviours,” says Herbert.
• Do you drive faster than all the other drivers around you?
“If you have been guilty of any of these behaviours, calm down before you have any regrets,” said Herbert.
