It makes sense that a person who’s just royally ticked you off with unsafe driving could also send you flying off the handle. But the last thing you want to do is escalate the situation even further. In a 2016 AAA Foundation study, 8 million drivers admitted to having gotten out of their car to confront another driver or even bumped or rammed another car on purpose.

If you’ve just had an incident with another vehicle, don’t stick around for the show. Leave plenty of space between your car and thiers, and keep your distance. Also, it’s probably a good idea to avoid making too much eye contact. You don’t want the other driver thinking you’re looking for a fight.
