Angry motorist honks at us at the red light, because we won't make a right turn and let them move forward.

Give me a break already!

We are stopped at a red light, sitting and waiting for the light to turn green in the right hand lane and the people behind us honk because we don't move out of their way!

Road Rage!

It was in the afternoon and for some dumb reason, or not! The people behind us directly, started to honk at us. We were in the far right lane, and there is no sign that reads, "Right Turn Only!" so we were driving North and waiting for the light to turn green to proceed. It's that simple but sometimes people who are in a hurry seem to think that honking at the driver in front of them will make them do something from impulse, such as ... drive through a red light just to let them make their right hand turn east? Yea right! Give me a break already!

The light turned green

I am a safe driver. And even when a traffic light turns green for GO! I will look left, look right before I go forward. It's just that I am old school. I am a defensive driver, but that person who honked at us for being in their way to make their right hand turn at a red light, also honked at us for not taking off like a BOOH! within a millisecond of the light changing to green.

Sometimes I think people need to just CHILL! That includes me! I need to not be rushed to anger.

I like to use the acronym CAT when driving, - Concentrate, Anticipate, Tolerate. People need to calm down that kind of aggressive driving is not safe, they are taking years off their own lives through stress and they are stressing others out too. I think there should be penalties for that type of driving!

The discipline among motorists must strictly followed to avoid accident.

CAT is very good acronym to use and to follow by. Thanks, I really like it.

There are many who agree with this. Being a defensive driver is not to react to aggressive drivers but to be calm and focused on personal safety at all times.
