Welcome to Mr.RoadRage.com
The Mission: Saving Lives On Highways Around The World!
Road Rage... That incredible urge you get to beat the "you know what" out of some idiot driver who .... (fill in the blank).
While that may be the immediate definition that comes to mind when you hear the phrase "road rage," it may also mean the frustration you feel just being on the road with other drivers who just don't realize that their inattention to that massive vehicle under their control may cause an accident, and may possibly even cost someone their life.
MrRoadRage.com exists for several reasons:
• So you can share some of your daily stories, maybe even rant and rave a little about the carelessness of other drivers.
• To bring attention to the causes as well as possible cures of road rage.
• To help save lives on our highways all around the world. (the best reason yet)
Let's start with a few questions:
• How often do you arrive at work (or some other destination) frazzled and angry because of other drivers?
• How often do you feel the same way once you return home?
• Have there been days you experienced road rage and felt the urge to yank that other driver out of his or her vehicle and beat some sense into their head, or maybe... felt the urge to just beat them senseless?
We have all experienced these emotions, and all too often these feelings happen a bit too frequently, sometimes resulting in confrontations with other drivers, and can even become quite violent, even fatal.
Please watch the following video. The following scenes are a bit graphic, and it's obvious some of those scenes are real accidents caught on camera. You are being shown this video with the hope of getting your attention, and getting your attention is necessary if we are going to reduce road rage and save lives on our highways.
Perhaps you have been fortunate enough not to have witnessed a careless accident such as those in the above video. I am not so fortunate, as I once watched as a dump truck carelessly ran a red light, and in so doing hit a car and redirected both vehicles into a nearby home.Fortunately, no one in the home was hurt, but the lady in the passenger seat of the car was not so lucky. She was unconscious on the scene and I never learned whether or not she survived the accident.
Having worked in a hospital, I have seen the results of horrific accidents where some of the victims were unfortunate to survive. Accidents such as those in the above video, as well as the one I witnessed are preventable, yet they happen every single day in cities all around the world. Let's consider a few facts...
Did you know:
• Each year there are over six million car accidents in the United States?
• Around 40,000 people are killed in car accidents every year?
• Someone dies in a car accident every 12 minutes?
These statistics are startling, right?
When you break it down, 762 people die per state per year on average. That's 762 too many, and almost all of these deaths are preventable. In the coming year, you or someone you love could be next. The question is, what can be done to lower these numbers? If you hang around, perhaps together we can discover some solutions that are easier than you think.
I challenge you to do a little research by talking to others, your co-workers, your neighbors, your friends, even your family about this topic of road rage. Better yet, take this discussion to social media and have a little fun on Facebook, Twitter, or Google Plus. People love to rant and rave about other drivers and how bad they drive.
Here's what you'll probably discover...
→ It's always the other driver that causes the problems.
→ Guess what? To someone else, you are the other driver.
→ Shocking, right?
Whether you define road rage as the anger you feel towards another driver for doing something careless, or if you define it as that violent uncontrollable urge to rip their head off, road rage is something everyone wants to avoid. Wouldn't you agree?
MrRoadRage.com is all about saving lives on highways around the world. Just imagine driving on highways that are safer, where people are courteous and kind to one another; where drivers actually pay attention to driving rather than surfing the web or texting. It can be done, but only if you care enough to make it possible. This isn't something that one person can do, or even a handful, but if we all pitch in one person at a time, then together we can have a profound effect that today may not seem possible.
Are you interested in seeing our roads become a safer place to drive? Would you like to see those deaths per year get cut in half, then half again? Any life we save is worth the effort, and the life we save may just be someone you know, it may even be yours.
It all starts with you. Share this website with those you know, with your family, your friends, your neighbors, your co-workers, even strangers you talk to in a store. Tell them there is this crazy guy with a plan to save lives on our highways. Tell them to visit MrRoadRage.com and join the discussion about road rage and the crazy drivers on our highways.

As MrRoadRage, I can't make anyone change, but I certainly can encourage it. Saving lives on our highways and reducing road rage is a goal worth striving for, and I hope you join me in this effort. People die on our highways every day. Those people were precious to someone.
Don't wait until you lose a loved one before joining this life saving venture, instead, pause right now and just imagine losing that one person (or your whole family) you care about the most to the careless driving of another. How would you feel if you lost your spouse or your child, or your best friend just because some driver was careless?
At first there is an overwhelming sense of loss, and hopelessness often followed by severe depression. A part of you has been ripped out and can never be replaced. Then bitterness and anger follow. You demand justice and want revenge. The death of the other driver is surely desired, but could never bring your loved one back. Once they are gone, they are gone forever.
The time for action is now, as it's way too late once you lose someone who is precious to you. So...whatcha gonna do? Will you just keep doing the same old thing you have always done, or will you spend some time participating here on MrRoadRage.com and sharing this website with everyone you can? Together, we can change the world...Together, we can save lives on highways around the world!
Preventing the loss of life is much better than grieving the loss of life!
And remember, the life you save could be yours.
