LANSING, Mich. — It's easy to get frustrated with all of this construction but it's important to stay safe while getting to where we need to be.

Here are some tips from the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety on how to avoid a road rage experience:

Don't release your frustration in ways that can offend other drivers.

According to a survey from AAA, some of the top things that anger drivers are:

  • Cutting people off
  • Driving slowly in the left lane
  • Tailgating
  • Angry gestures

If an angry driver is targeting you, don't engage with them. Avoid eye contact and steer clear by giving them plenty of room and trying to put as much space as possible between you and them.
