With More & More Traffic Building Up Everywhere I thought this article was timely

A taxi driver stopped in traffic


Jaime, a taxi driver in Madrid, Spain, has had to live with traffic jams for over 30 years. Here is how he keeps cool in aggravating situations:

  • I take something with me to read. Then if the traffic doesn't move at all, I don't get so frustrated.
  • When the traffic is crawling along, I listen to the news on the car radio or to a recording of the Bible. In this way I have something other than traffic to think about.
  • As a rule, I never use the horn, since it just disturbs others and serves no purpose. By showing courtesy to other drivers, I avoid stress and help others to do the same.
  • I try to be calm when I encounter aggressive drivers, and I give them a wide berth. There is no substitute for patience.
  • Although I attempt to find alternative routes, I let my clients know that sometimes the heavy traffic will cause a delay in their schedule. City driving and punctuality are not always compatible.

Thanks for sharing.  I don't hit traffic much where I am at.  But I always have a book in case someone is late for an appt. so I don't feel like I am wasteing time waiting.

Some great advice - I'm sure this helps Jaime keep his BP down.
