Keep your cool

Sometimes there are reasons to feel frustrated behind the wheel, but there’s no point in getting angry with inconsiderate drivers. Consider London ‘black cab’ taxi drivers. They spend all day annoying other drivers by stopping and performing U-turns with little warning, but they tend not to get into disputes. Why? They’re taught to avoid confrontational eye contact with other road users, to not engage in quarrels, to wave and signal before they carry out manoeuvres, and generally avoid aggravation. You can all learn a lot from this. Let others huff and puff, while you stay focused on your journey ahead.
