Keep Calm - Avoid Road Rage

Road rage can affect your auto insurance policy, coverage and optionsI’m sure you’d agree that traffic roadway gridlock, back-ups and other car travel issues will try the patience of even the calmest driver. But most drivers take it in stride. Then there are the drivers that tend to become aggressive; but even those drivers don’t take it to the next level and act out with road rage.

If you find it difficult to stay cool on the road, consider this: depending upon the circumstances, if you become aggressive while driving and end up in an auto accident, your car insurance may no longer protect you.

In “Keep Your Cool When Road Rage Hits”, Erie Insurance offers that It’s important to keep control when dealing with an aggressive driver and not retaliate in order to prevent further problems. It offers "six tips to help you keep your cool when dealing with aggressive drivers so you don’t become one yourself.”  Read the article to learn more about road rage and how to best protect yourself.

Auto Insurance Tip

You might be surprised to learn that road rage is characterized as an exemption in many Auto Insurance policies because damage stemming from aggressive driving is not actually an accident but instead is the result of risky behavior. Your insurance agent should be able to tell you more about how to remain in control and avoid road rage.

What Our Customers Have To Say...

I've been with Ginger and CIS (Formerly H.T.Brown Insurance Agency) since November, 1994. Insurance for auto, home, business, and life are a critical part of our daily lives. We never plan on having to use insurance, but it gives me "peace of mind" to know that CIS and Ginger are there to assist. For over 17 years I can pick up the phone and speak with someone that knows me beyond a policy number. In an ever changing environment, it's nice to know they are there to answer my questions. I look forward to being with them for many more years to come. Thanks Ginger.--- Tony Sykesville
