Positive Tips #18: Let people go on the roadways

Living in Chicago, I became quite an aggressive driver. You sort of have to become that to an extent just to get where you need to be. However, I’ve discovered that you really should be a lot nicer on the roadways because when it comes down to it, we’re all just trying to get someplace. There wouldn’t be any other reason why we would sit in traffic would there be?

Imagine a world where everyone was nice enough to let people in their lane. Imagine if when you signaled, you could actually get in that lane without forcing yourself into the lane. Imagine driving without worrying about people cutting you off.

The way I think about it is this.. If people cut me off, they must need to get to their destination in a hurry. That’s ok, they can go for it, it doesn’t affect my behavior on the road or change how I should drive.

So the next time you find yourself on the road, try making sure you let people go on the roadways. I’m sure they would appreciate it and honestly, it will reduce the amount of stress and yelling you would do. Keeping positive will get you to your location safe and sound!
