9: The Out-Of-Control Jeep
Road rage happens anywhere, from urban streets at daylight to the dirt roads of the Midwest. You are never exempt from experiencing road rage at one time or another. Here we have a story about a nice night in 1965 Willys that turned bad. “She starts flipping them, and just as my dad yells from the back seat “don’t do it!”, she flips the last one. All of the lights around the center column, (6 on top, 4 on each side), plus four high beams on the rear bumper, all light up like a thousand suns, right in front of this jerk’s eyes. He slams the breaks so hard his car immediately spins about 720 before regaining control and stopping.” – via Some eCards.
Now, as you can see, the blame was partial on both sides, and speed was a factor. Controlling your temper in these situations is the key to being a safe driver. You never want to be on the receiving end of an angry driver, likewise, you want to ensure that you get to your destination in one piece.
