Car Meditation Anyone?

I’m Coolest In Commute Traffic

You’ve tried everything. From listening to meditation podcasts to smooth jazz, but that only seems to work when no one is tailgating you. We’ve all seen that driver. He or she is driving really fast, using all freeway lanes like it’s their private expressway, honking, not letting you merge into their lane, brake checking and cutting you off, and then you wonder, where is the California Highway Patrol when you need them the most?

Driving in Los Angeles could be difficult to manage and stressful at times. A recent study of social media hashtags revealed that Los Angeles tops the nation with road rage related-posts.* This study doesn’t necessarily mean road rage incidents in Los Angeles are on the rise, but it means Angelenos are more willing to share their frustrations on social media.

In light of what we all experience on our highways and freeways, here are 5 helpful tips to ease the stress of being stuck in traffic and possibly being faced with road rage.

-Don’t take it personal.
-Remain calm, ask yourself is this worth it?
-Keep your mind focused on everyone’s safety.
-Don’t fall into their trap.
-Call 9-1-1

The California Highway Patrol wants to remind you to not hesitate to meditate. Your safety is important to us and precious to your loved ones as well.
