Road Rage: How Should You Respond?

I live in Florida where we have so many tourists that are driving and they are not familiar with where they are going. I normally have much patience but not so much when I see a license plate from a liberal state like California or New York. :mazy
I’m in a liberal state (WA) and I am guilty of saying “Oh of course it’s an Oregon plate” when they’re going too slow and “Oh of course it’s a California plate” when they’re going too fast

This all goes to say that we don’t like the way we drive either

When road rage rears its ugly head, I do what I can to distance myself from the person who clearly isn't in a right mind. Road ragers are dangerous people.
I agree…road rage is very dangerous!

And on the other hand you run into some who will not get out of the fast lane and do 55 on the Interstate/Freeway. 80% of them are on their dang cell phone! The others…. I have seen some actually reading a newspaper or book, and there are some who just won’t get over.

I have a hard time with those who can put their ever loving phone up and drive!

Here’s what really gets me…..
What is so urgent that they have to be on their cell phones while they are driving? I’ve even seen them texting and driving! As I get in the slow lane to get around them, I usually will glance over and I kid you not…it’s usually because they are talking or texting. Do the lives of other drivers and their passengers mean so little to those who can’t stay off their phones while they drive? What about their own safety? The safety of those riding with them?

I know that in some states this is illegal; not in mine however. It surely should be!
Why is it that human life seems to have such little value.

The other day I went up to our local Christian book store and saw a 'Honk if you love Jesus' bumper sticker ..

I was feeling particularly sassy that day because I had just come from a thrilling choir performance, followed by a thunderous prayer meeting..

So, I bought the sticker and put it on my bumper.

Boy, am I glad I did; what an uplifting experience that followed.

I was stopped at a red light at a busy intersection, just lost in thought about the Lord and how good he is, and I didn't notice that the light had changed.

It is a good thing someone else loves Jesus because if he hadn't honked, I'd never have noticed.

I found that lots of people love Jesus! While I was sitting there, the guy behind started honking like crazy, and then he leaned out of his window and screamed, 'For the love of God!'

'Go! Go! Go! Jesus Christ, GO!'

What an exuberant cheerleader he was for Jesus!

Everyone started honking!

I just leaned out my window and started waving and smiling at all those loving people. I even honked my horn a few times to share in the love!

There must have been a man from Florida back there because I heard him yelling something about a sunny beach.

I saw another guy waving in a funny way with only his middle finger stuck up in the air.

I asked my young teenage grandson in the back seat what that meant. He said it was probably a Hawaiian good luck sign or something.

Well, I have never met anyone from Hawaii , so I leaned out the window and gave him the good luck sign right back. My grandson burst out laughing. Why even he was enjoying this religious experience!!

A couple of the people were so caught up in the joy of the moment that they got out of their cars and started walking towards me.

I bet they wanted to pray or ask what church I attended, but this is when I noticed the light had changed. So, grinning, I waved at all my brothers and sisters, and drove on through the intersection.

I noticed that I was the only car that got through the intersection before the light changed again and felt kind of sad that I had to leave them after all the love we had shared.

So I slowed the car down, leaned out the window and gave them all the Hawaiian good luck sign one last time as I drove away. Praise the Lord for such wonderful folks!!

Life Is Good, Enjoy It!

I live in AZ and we have looong had a rep as a place that somehow gathers the worst drivers from all the other states...plus, NOBODY here knows how to drive safely in the rain (natives included) because it's such an infrequent occurrence.

I have seen a huge uptick in people driving aggressively and rudely since Covid; it's like the lockdowns and media induced dear-frenzy have even further dehumanized us. For some reason it makes me even angrier when I see these aggressive drivers have plates from commie-states. :)
