About Me

Hi, my name is Randy Hill and I am just one of thousands of people around the world, tired and frustrated with the lack of consideration that is displayed by a growing "demographic" that I call, "the great unwashed and ill-mannered." People who can't seem to get outside their little world long enough to see the stress that they create on the rest of the population.

I've created this blog and online store as an outlet for this pent-up frustration...and also to have a little devious fun while I'm at it!

Have fun and keep it down while you're in here. Thanks.

It’s all the rage…road rage that is.

By Randy | July 27, 2007

I think everyone has felt it at one time or another. I’m talking about that urge to pay back the stupid jerk that pulled the dangerous move in the car in front of you that almost got you killed. If you could just…just…well, murder is out of the question. How about slamming the brakes on the tailgater in the car behind you, just to scare him? How about tailgating that person yourself and following them until they get nervous and call the cops on you?

Road rage. It happens thousands of times everyday in every state of the country and the story never has a happy ending. People are killed and maimed and lives ruined over the unchecked anger of an out-of-control driver.

Don’t let it happen to you. Next time you feel your blood starting to boil, try these 10 Useful Tips provided by www.roadragers.com:

1. Don’t retaliate. Never take the other driver personally; he/she is only reacting on a road rage instinct.

2. Don’t make eye contact with an angry driver.

3. Before you react to anything that is done to you please ask yourself, “Is getting back at that jerk worth my life?”

4. Be polite and courteous, even when others are not.

5. Always ask yourself: “Could the other driver have possibly made a mistake?”

6. If you are harassed by another driver and being followed, do not go home. Go to the nearest police detachment.

7. Slow down and relax!

8. Never underestimate other drivers’ capacity for mayhem.

9. Reduce your driving stress by allowing enough time to get where you are going. Know the roads that are under construction and listen to weather reports that may cause traffic delays. Practice patience and keep your cool.

10. Remember that you cannot control the drivers around you, but you can control the way they affect your well-being. Be calm and drive safely.
