2) Rush hour traffic. Rush hour traffic leads to a higher risk of collision from the additional congestion that leads to road rage and aggressive driving.

Other Safe Driving Techniques

– Do not drive when you are in a bad state of mind. Consider pulling over to take a moment until negative emotions neutralize, should you notice the road rage building, or stress levels getting too high. Take a moment to call your bestie in a parking lot, get a coffee, or ice cream; whatever you need to do, just take a break from the road.
Avoid distractions. There are many things that can be distracting on the road such as displays, other drivers, activities going on in the car, or your phone trying to get your attention. In any case, you need to remember your responsibilities and not let the distractions interfere.
Keep from driving while exhausted. There are simply too many accidents that occur because people choose to drive fatigued. Ask for a ride, get someone one else to take the wheel and never get behind the wheel tired.
