In most cases irregular behavior on the road can be attributed to some or other influence.

For example, see the previous page on Anxiety where the driver can benefit from the understanding and patience of other road users.

However, every now and again the mind boggles at what people do and can't be explained any other way than 'stupid,' to phrase it politely.

This topic deserves its own page and the benefit to those going through the course is to highlight the second of the Golden Rules to 'Expect the Unexpected.'

See link to Bad Drivers where I upload real-life trips giving practical examples of stupid driving.

🛈 How to deal with stupid drivers

Encountering drivers who exhibit careless or unsafe behavior on the road can be frustrating and challenging. However, it's important to prioritize your own safety and maintain a calm and responsible approach. Here are some suggestions on how to deal with such situations:

  • Stay calm and focused: It's essential to remain calm and composed while driving, even if other drivers' actions are irritating or seem careless. Getting angry or engaging in aggressive behavior can escalate the situation and increase the risk of accidents. Focus on your own driving and maintain a safe distance from drivers who are behaving irresponsibly.

  • Avoid confrontation: It's best to avoid confrontations with other drivers. Engaging in arguments or aggressive gestures can further exacerbate the situation and potentially lead to dangerous road rage incidents. Maintain a respectful and courteous attitude towards other drivers, regardless of their behavior.

  • Allow for space and distance: If you encounter a driver who is displaying reckless behavior, give them plenty of space. Increase the distance between your vehicle and theirs to reduce the chances of being involved in any potential accidents caused by their actions.

  • Report dangerous behavior: If you witness a driver engaging in extremely dangerous or illegal behavior that puts themselves or others at risk, consider reporting it to the appropriate authorities. In many countries, you can contact the local police or emergency services to report the incident. Provide a detailed description of the vehicle, location, and any relevant information to assist law enforcement in addressing the situation.

  • Practice defensive driving: Focus on defensive driving techniques to protect yourself and anticipate potential hazards on the road. This includes staying alert, following traffic rules and regulations, maintaining a safe following distance, and being prepared to react to unexpected maneuvers by other drivers.

  • Be a role model: Set an example of responsible and safe driving by following traffic laws, maintaining courtesy towards others, and respecting road safety. By demonstrating good driving behavior, you contribute to a safer road environment and encourage others to do the same.

Remember, you cannot control the behavior of other drivers, but you can control your own reactions and driving habits. Prioritize your safety and the safety of others by remaining calm, alert, and responsible on the road.
