Whether you like it or not, the roads we drive on everyday are meant to be shared. You will spend a large chunk of your life sharing these streets with complete strangers. Let’s work together to make our city roads a pleasant place to stroll to and from work every day. Here are a few tips to help you keep your sanity and avoid the frustrations that come with day-to-day travel.
Give People The Benefit of The Doubt
Have you ever been on the road behind slow drivers, fast drivers, or non-blinker using drivers? We all have. The next time this happens and your blood starts to boil, ask yourself what that driver may be going through. Have they recently lost a loved one? Are they on the way to the hospital for the birth of their child? You never know what causes people to drive mindlessly, and, of course, it’s easy to just assume that they are careless, but what if the next time this happened, you assume the best about them. Save yourself from a ruined day, by giving your fellow drivers the benefit of the doubt.
Realize We All Make Mistakes
Did you person in front of you just cut you off? You could assume that they are personally attacking you or you could take the high road and give that person some grace for making an honest mistake. We’ve all done it. Perhaps you were distracted or maybe missed your exit, but the truth is that there is not a single driver on the road who has never regrated something like this. You can make our city roads better by just offering a little grace to your fellow drivers the next time they make a mistake or… even a poor choice. Remind yourself that in most cases, the other driver’s mistake is not a personal attack on you.
Treat Others How You Want To Be Treated
We’ve all had bad days or made driving mistakes and that’s why we have auto insurance. Auto insurance covers these errors by paying for collision repair damage and/or medical injuries. Give others the gift of the Golden Rule. Treat others the way you want to be treated on the road… on your worst driving day or best. Together we can improve our city roads and the driving experience for all San Antonians.
