A recent study found that men experience road rage 3X more frequently than woman do.
But as a driver in New York City, I experience it daily.
It's one of the things that makes people scared to drive here.
Everything from bikes in the third lane, to pedicabs going half the speed limit. And don't even start on the taxis.
If they have a fare, they will cut you off to get where they have to go. But have you ever been behind one that's looking for a fare? They couldn't be driving slower, and more annoyingly.
Almost as bad as the old people in the left lane on the highway.
Now, this may sound like a rant, but it really isn't.
I had a point to this post.
It's simple, you need to get over that fear.
Get out there and drive, do it safely, and keep your eyes on the road.
There is no more dangerous city in the world to be looking at a cell phone while driving. It takes just two seconds of a distraction to get in an accident in a regular city. Takes less than that here.
If you can't deal with it, don't get all the way into a side line, because the cabs will suddenly cut in front of you, to pick up/drop off fares.
Stick to a middle lane, and tread carefully.
Good luck people. And if you are in my way. I will honk you, because that's the worse I can legally do.
