Road Rage – When Driving List

Road Rage – When Driving List

ROAD RAGE IS…

Road Rage is often called intermittent explosive disorder, a term used to refer to violent incidents resulting from stress caused by accidents or incidents on roadways. It is often a natural extension of aggressive driving.

Road Rage frustration and aggression are often triggered by traffic conditions, being in a hurry, stress related to other pressures. Road Rage is a feeling of retaliating of awlfulizing the other driver. The other driver deserves retribution. We make a free choice in what we do. We choose how we are going to respond.

∇ Are you experiencing aggressive driving in your attitude when behind the wheel?

∇ Find yourself driving erratically?

∇ Getting ‘worked up” driving?

∇ Find yourself saying not nice things called Expletives?

∇ Driving definitely causing you a lot of stress?

Road Rage:

  • Occurs when a driver reacts angrily to other drivers
  • You cut off another driver
  • Tailgating
  • Gesturing or waving fist.
  • Flip off someone
  • Aggressive driving
  • Excessive speeds
  • Scream at another
  • Chase another car
  • Honk continuously at another car
  • Make threatening gestures
  • Try to injure or kill another driver
  • Name what you do: _______________

Road Rage is an symptom of an underlying issue with a driver. Impulse Control is a major issue. They are unable to remain in control of themselves or their emotions. Often stress is very high in your life. Perhaps your personal or business life is not going very well. Your anger spreads beyond driving creeping into other aspects of your life.

Choose to Calm Down and disengage from your stress.

 

For drivers who do not experience Road Rage knowing what might trigger a person is equally important.

 

Do not “flip off” someone with your middle finger. They may have a pistol in hand waiting for an excuse. Some people may just not like your look. Your race. Your hair color.

 

Atlanta has now become an aggressive driving city with too many cars and not enough roads.

 

Vote for more MARTA, High Speed Trains, Other Public Transportation ideas when they come up in Voting. Use MARTA when you can.

 

WHEN DRIVING:

  • Be calm
  • Listen to soothing music
  • Slow down
  • Take more time to get to your destination and expect delays
  • Plan your driving trip before you drive so you know where you are going. Use Google maps.
  • Plan to arrive 20 minutes early so if traffic bad you are not stressed
  • Become a better driver
  • If you have anxiety while driving take a driver education course in defensive driving
  • Be courteous while driving
  • Make appointments in non traffic times
  • Stop multi-tasking while driving
  • Stop talking on phone while driving
  • Stop looking at your phone while driving
  • Practice holding the steering wheel with two hands so your other hand does not auto multi-task
  • Allow a car beside you to get ahead of you when lane narrows
  • When a driver cuts in front of you abruptly, let it go and expect that again
  • Drive with 360 degree awareness paying attention to all sides, front, back, left, right (Zen Driving)
  • Anticipate traffic incidents with attentive awareness “reading” the traffic ahead of you
  • Practice Positive Self Talk and say things like “Calm Down” “I feel Calm” “No big deal”
  • Do not use expletives like idiot, stupid, asshole, *uck you, *ucker, Mother*ucker
  • Do not use expletives like _____________ _______________ _____________
  • Arrive safely to live another day

 

Remain Calm and Carry On. Repeat this to yourself.

DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office Honored for Anti-Recidivism Program

DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office Honored for Anti-Recidivism Program

June 12, 2014

[Decatur, GA]
The DeKalb County Board of Commissioners recently honored the DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office for creating a program dedicated to giving offenders ages 17 -25 a second chance. The Anti-Recidivism Court was created by District Attorney Robert James in December 2011. Since the program’s inception, 22 participants have successfully completed the program.

“This unique program offers young, first-time, non-violent offenders a second chance at life,” said James. “This program does not give them a ‘get out of jail free’ pass for their mistakes, but it allows them to learn from their prior missteps through a rigorous year-long program.”

The Anti-Recidivism Court is a collaborative partnership among DeKalb County Public Defenders’ Office, DeKalb County Magistrate Court and DeKalb County District Attorney’s Office.

According to national statistics, approximately two-thirds of individuals arrested will be re-arrested within three years. “The judicial system can become a revolving door for criminals. We wanted to deliberately interrupt the cycle of recidivism here in DeKalb through this program.”

Currently, 20 participants are enrolled in the year-long Anti-Recidivism Court.

As conditions of the diversion program, each participant is ordered to: report to private probation, perform community service, undergo random monitoring, report to monthly compliance hearings and abide by a curfew/electronic monitoring. Additionally, participants must pay any restitution involved with their arrest, enroll in an academic program if they have not obtained a high school diploma/GED and attend behavior modification classes.

“We focus on developing the person and providing them with the skills needed to be successful in life,” said James. “We not only provide them with life skills training but also a strict guideline to follow. Many do not complete the course .

For those participants who do complete all of their requirements, they will have their cases dismissed.”

If a participant is found in violation of the diversion program terms, then their case would be sent back to Superior Court for prosecution. “The program is not a fit for ever applicant,” said Diversion Program Director Kaleema Thomas. “The participants have to be committed to change and willing to work on themselves throughout the process.”

Atlanta Anger Management offers two such Lifeskills Courses.

  1. Anger Management Class
  2. Character Development Class

 

1. Anger Management Class

Anger Management is a course of treatment that seeks to help people whose anger emotion is causing negative problems in their personal, business or public life.

Anderson & Anderson’s Certified Anger Management Facilitators are influencing how anger management is practiced throughout the United States. Richard Taylor of Atlanta Anger Management sets the standard in Atlanta with many others following our lead. We offer what is needed and other companies soon copy us and offer it too. Two companies have even copied our name or derivatives thereof. Such flattery, thank you.

Anger Management has moved from the basic idea of management of anger to a broader understanding of the relationship between:

  • anger self-awareness
  • anger management
  • stress self-awareness
  • stress management
  • improving communication
  • increasing self-awareness
  • mindfulness
  • social awareness
  • impulse control
  • optimism
  • decision making
  • self-perception
  • flexibility
  • and relationship management

These lifeskills learned are positive by design and move the participant from low motivation into high motivation to commit to the process if they only honor their Pre-Trial Diversion Program requirements by completing the number of hours required.

♦ Unfortunately many get their Letter Of Enrollment attending their first class to (get off the hook) for their first Probation Meeting and then disappear into their past patterns that only lead to more trouble and eventual arrest ~ jail time for violation of their Agreed On Terms Of Pre-Trial Diversion Program.  Stricter penalties needed to be served for violation in our estimation.

Participants completing the Anger Management Class (Course) leave with enhanced life skills for greater self understanding (awareness), learn to control one’s emotions, better social awareness for better interactions and more productive relationship management.

In most cases reduced recidivism is also achieved.

NOTE: Anger Management is not psychotherapy. Anger Management is psycho-education and a highly personalized form of treatment using educational approach to skill development. Specialized Anger Management Certification Training of 40 Hours or more by national certification companies should be the standard for practice.

Anger Management does not seek to help those in need of counseling to find ways of avoiding their anger altogether. According to the American Psychiatric Association, anger is a normal human emotion. It is not a mental disorder, consequently it is not responsive to traditional counseling, psychotherapy or psychotropic medication. Additionally anger is not listed in The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) DSM-IV-TR.

Anger is exemplified by anger outbursts or tempers that flair out of proportion to the causing stimuli or situation. Anger can be aggressive as in verbal abuse or physical abuse but also passive as in emotional blackmail, negative control issues, silent treatment etc. The individual experiencing anger often lashes out against family members, friends, acquaintances coworkers, even strangers.

Anger is a problem under the following circumstances:

When it occurs too frequently
• When it is too intense 
• When it lasts too long
• When it leads to health issues
• When it destroys interpersonal relationships: personal, work and public 
• When it results in person-directed aggression: verbal abuse or physical abuse

Anger can be managed using skills/tools that can be learned through a course of proven Anger Management curriculum.

Atlanta Anger Management is offered in:

Minimally these classes are designed to teach core life skills in the following domains:

• Self Observing Self
• Anger Awareness and Anger Management
• Stress Awareness and Stress Management
• Improved Communication through Assertion Training & Active Listening
• Emotional Intelligence:
self-awareness, self control, social awareness and relationship management
• Relationship Management
• Cognitive Restructuring
• Learning to Respond To Another Person’s Anger
• Optimism and Gratitude

 

The first step is to call Richard at 678-576-1913 and we get to know one another. It is usually fairly brief but provides you the opportunity to discuss current situation and what some of the issues are and define your requirements as dictated by your referring party.

KEY WAYS TO TURN ANGER INTO PEACE

Key Ways to Turn Anger into Peace

Characteristics Of An Angry Person

A = Aggressiveness
B = Blame
C = Criticism
D = Denial

Angry People deny they have a problem.

Do you yell frequently or have Rage episodes where you don’t remember everything you said? Admit it. You are not fun to be around as those you love the most have to “walk on eggshells’ to be around you.

You can live a better way and actually live longer. Yes anger and rage helps you die early. This is a fact.

Key Ways to Turn Anger into Peace

  • Don’t let things build up, Use Assertion Skills to address issues as you go along
  • Clear the “air’ once a week and have a weekly catch up chat about your weekly feelings
  • Understand the thoughts or ways you are perceiving things that are the true sources of your anger. i.e. Answer: “Why am I angry?”
  • Try to sense down to the softer emotions beneath anger, like hurt or fear; acknowledge those to yourself or express them to others.
  • If you feel like you’re going to blow up, walk away or call a friend.
  • Get professional help if you are directing anger at yourself or others in harmful ways.
  • Ask your heart for guidance.
  • Practice Positive Thinking; catch negative thoughts and change the channel to positive thoughts
  • Practice Gratitude. What are you grateful for?
  • Increase your Laughter and sense of play in your daily life
  • Release Stress with Stress Management
  • Choose to avoid arguing and keep feelings low on the stress and anger scales

ROAD RAGE HELP

ROAD RAGE HELP

A new kind of road hazard is Aggressive Driving that can become Road Rage.

When driving watch for:

  • aggressive drivers who weave in and out of traffic
  • drivers who tailgate (follow too closely)
  • drive too fast on crowded highways
  • honk the horn frequently
  • drive with no regard for other drivers and their vechicles
  • drivers who cut you off
  • drivers who brake very fast – you might read end them
  • drivers who “squeeze’ in front of 18 wheel trucks
  • scream at you
  • obscene gestures
  • drivers who try to get you to talk to them while driving
  • drivers who change lanes when you do and seem to be chasing you
  • drivers who get in front of you and slam their brakes on

Today’s hectic, over crowded, fast-paced world, frustration levels are sky high, stress piles on with increasing number of people expressing this as angry driving.

Avoid Road Rage consequences with these tips:

  • aggressive and excessive speeding, particularly on congested highways
  • aggressive and excessive speeding in bad weather
  • speed causes nearly 1/3 of all fatal motor vehicle crashes
  • speeding reduces the time drivers have to avoid a crash or a dangerous situation and greatly increases the likelihood the crash will be severe.
  • The energy released in a collision at 60 mph is 200 percent greater than at 40 mph, even though the speed has increased by only 50 percent.

Control Yourself

  • Wind down before you crank it up
  • Avoid making other drivers angry by avoiding anger yourself
  • Anticipate situations and make plans accordingly.
  • Regular traffic reports in most cities alert you to the traffic congestion.
  • Allow extra driving time to remain stress free.
  • Learn alternate routes.
  • Find ways to relive daily stress such as Working Out (Exercise), Pilates, Meditation, Laughter Yoga, Conscious Breathing, Singing, taking Hot Baths at night.
  • If you plan a long road trip, take it in 8 to 10 hour stages.
  • Every three hours driving take a rest stop break.

Be Patient & Pay Attention – Avoid A Driving Assault

  1. Don’t yell or use obscene gestures.
  2. Don’t block the passing lane.
  3. Stay to the right if you are obstructing the flow of traffic.
  4. Always signal when changing lanes.
  5. Use your horn sparingly.
  6. Don’t tailgate.
  7. Cooperate
  8. Don’t compete on the road.
  9. Let other drivers merge into traffic in an orderly fashion.
  10. Don’t take another’s actions personally. Everybody makes mistakes.
  11. Don’t react to another driver’s uncivil behavior
  12. Avoid eye contact
  13. Don’t accelerate, brake or swerve suddenly, which can be seen as confrontational.
  14. If confronted by an aggressive driver, go to the nearest police station if you continue to be hassled or think you are being followed.
  15. Lock your doors.
  16. When stopped in traffic, leave enough space to pull out from behind the car you are following.
  17. Don’t be tempted to start a fight or carry any sort of weapon. These acts may provoke an assault.

DeKalb County Raising Awareness Over Domestic Violence

DeKalb County Raising Awareness Over Domestic Violence

Friday, Oct. 18, 2013

DeKalb County leads state in domestic violence deaths

DEKALB COUNTY, GA. —

DeKalb County leads the state in the number of women murdered in domestic violence incidents. Now, county leaders are taking steps to raise awareness and help give victims a way out.

Tamiko Lowery said at first it was emotional abuse, then it turned physical by her husband of three years. She’s now an advocate against domestic violence.

“I remember him hitting me. I don’t remember anything else after that. The next thing I know, I was in the middle of Interstate 85 with cars swerving around me,” Lowery said. “When you’re raised in that environment and you see it, you just don’t know how to get help.”

The same is true for Sabrina McKenzie whose husband of 20 years abused her and it ran in her family.

“My sister was murdered by her husband. She was stabbed 22 times in front of her kids,” McKenzie said.

Both women are survivors. And both are sharing their story in an effort to help others. Especially in DeKalb County.

Domestic violence deaths have increased in DeKalb in recent years. Last year, the county had the highest number of deaths in the entire state, which is why solicitor Sherry Boston said her number one priority is to get that number down.

“To know that I am here serving in a county where traditionally we are at the top at the list for the state of Georgia, it means that I know I have to work extra hard to get the message out,” Boston said.

Boston’s office is collecting cell phones to give victims the opportunity to call for help. And they’re getting businesses to help them.

“It’s hard when you have to hide even those emotional scars,” Boston said. “But when you think you can potentially save someone else’s life…”

October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The Solicitor’s Office is having a symposium that’s open to the public to talk about the issue.

It’s on Thursday, Oct. 24 from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at Manuel Maloof Auditorium in Decatur.
