Go ask your parents little kid.
I swear on a regular basis when driving. It amazes me how many people who get behind the wheel of a car and driving is the last thing they do there. I have had so many close calls last year I asked for and received a dash cam. I would never stop and get out … Read more
A recent road rage that happened in Perterbough, Ontario Canada has left me shocked. Look it up on Youtube. A man exited his truck and using a club repetitively hit an elderly cyclist while a passerby filmed it. So enraged he was in denial and virtually insane at that momment.
The bleeding cyclist was also in … Read more
I'm an occasional road-rager. Not to the point of getting out of my car and confronting anyone, but I will react strongly to certain offenses. I'm no stranger to flipping people off or shouting obscenities at someone who probably won't even hear them.
Family, community, and society. Ultimately the individual and their conscious dictates their personal morals.
I think from peers, family and just generally the place in which they grow up. The environment in which they grow up. Good question:)
I talk to myself about the idiots.
Not into getting someone all fired up that they may hurt others.
To my mind, people inevitably select their own morals. Whether influenced by beliefs, culture, or our own ambitions, how we behave toward others is a product of what works from our own perspective. Morals in practice are an ongoing exercise of reward over remorse, of social acceptance over rejection.
People carry guns. Mace. They can be sociopaths. They do serious drugs. You can never know what to expect. Maybe they'll post your angry ass on YouTube.
After so many years of roadway experience, you come to realize the ride isn't worth getting all that upset about, one more jerk in front of you won't … Read more
I don't think humans like the thought of seeing something horrible happen to someone else because of empathy, in thinking about how they'd feel. Of course this excludes psychopaths because they do not feel empathy, so if they are in charge of countries then we are screwed.
That said, humans have over the years identified … Read more
I think in a way you are born with them.... What you do with them is a choice.
There are several factors that play into people's morals and where they get them. Family, friends, life experiences, and some from religion. I also fully believe one's mindset and personality come in to play. I supervised many inmates who grew up in stable, loving, well of homes who's parents were wonderful, and the inmate was … Read more
I become angry, and yell inside my vehicle, but I don't usually retaliate or say anything to stupid drivers.
They get them from their parents and their family, from their religion, from their life experiences...they can come from all kinds of sources, but it's up to the individual to sort them out and decide what morals they want to follow.
Not an overt rager or horn blaster .... But I do occasionally express my anger privately inside my car. (It isn't pretty.) LOL
When I started driving many, many, many years ago my father warned me that men (women were not normally driving cars back then but they still fall into the category) lost their inhibitions just as fast as if they were drinking when they got behind a steering wheel. Over time I have witnessed road rage … Read more
