I’ve sat by and watched more and more people in the Chattanooga-area who do not
grasp a couple of things when driving. It’s pissed me off enough, that I’ve jotted
- Directional Indicator Paralysis (DIP) or people who cannot ever use a “blinker” to
indicate where they’re turning. I’ve also found out that the larger/more expensive a car/suv/truck, the more likely the driver has DIP. 2. Go back to your drivers manual and look at the section where it emphasizes that the left lane is the “Passing Lane”. If people are having to swerve around you, then you don’t belong in that lane….same thing for the outer-most freeway lane. 3. Speed Limit signs are there for a reason. If you’re not going the speed limit or the same speed as your neighbor, then move to the right lane. Do not try to slow me down, this is how “road rage” started. 4. Green = Go. 5. Cutting across three lanes of traffic to make an exit is just bad karma waiting to happen. 6. When driving to Hamilton Place, please be aware that there is a very nice exit directly to the mall. Going down E.Brainerd to get to Gunbarrel is just pissing off the locals. See #2 & #5. 7. This is more of an observation: I’ve been cut-off by more SUVs with Jesus fishes and/or soccer ball stickers than anyone else. WWJD? Probably use a blinker and merge or wave you on. I’ve never been cut-off by a VW Bus.
Remember: Road Rage isn’t a condition, but an art form.
