That call might very well have saved their lives.”

Joe and Martin wants drivers to remember that they’re responsible for keeping themselves safe while on the road. “Every single day I hear about at least one case of road rage, which is just sad. From what I can tell is that if just one person had controlled their temper instead of engaging in hostile acts, no on one would have been hurt.

No matter how much someone might antagonize you or irritate you with their driving behavior, do not lower yourself to their level. Focus on your own driving and call the cops. All you have to do is provide the police with a brief description of the driver’s behavior and the license plate number and they will take care of everything else.”
