Holiday Road Rage – How Serious It Can Get and How To Deal With It?
Being home with family and friends during the holidays is supposed to be a time filled with fun and joy. However, getting to the actual holiday day can be frustrating. If you’ve ever been caught in holiday mall traffic or waited in line at the grocery store with baskets full of holiday meal items, then you know this frustration.
Road Rage Arguments Can Escalate Very Quickly
Some of the silliest things can lead to a very serious car accident. We’ve all driven past an argument in the parking lot between two drivers fighting for a spot. It can get very serious very quickly. Some drivers speed to get a spot that just let up, hit a corner, and run straight into another driver trying to get the same spot. Some drivers risk car damages because they got cut off from a spot they’d been waiting on.
Whatever the situation may be, be cautious and remember that you could be the one on the receiving end of an angry driver this holiday season.
Most Common Car Accidents That Happen On Holidays
Some of the more common accidents seen around the holidays involve door bangs, rear-ends, and fender benders. The usual thought is that because the accident happens in a parking lot, it won’t be as serious. However, these accidents can still be just as serious as if it were on the open road.
During the holidays, some of the most common accidents seen are:
- Road-rage/ Parking lot rage incidents
- Pedestrian incidents
- Drunk driving accidents
- Rear-end collisions
- Fender benders
Reason for these Accidents:
When people are in a rush to get into a store for that last-minute gift or try to squeeze their large truck in between two cars, its common to expect someone’s door to be dented in from trying to get in and out of the car.
