Road Rage and Other Anger Issues

How can you control your anger and avoid road rage?

Considering how congested DC metro traffic has become, it’s no surprise that we all get a little angry on the roads.  But that’s a far cry the growing incidents of road rage we’ve seen.  Some of them violent.  But quick tempers and extreme anger don’t just happen behind the wheel of a car.  We’ve seen in our homes, on the job and in social settings.  Why does this happen and what can people do to manage extreme anger?
