Bring back respect and courtesy to the roads!

Respect on the road is important and in more and more places respect and courtesy on the roads are becoming lesser by the day. We keep hearing about “road rage” and for some reason, too many drivers becomes animals behind the steering wheel.

What’s to do about it? Well, for starters, AXA Car Insurance is pulling out the big guns by launching a campaign called AXA Respect On The Road which involves a Facebook page and YouTube.

On YouTube, AXA has posted this awesome video of 5-year olds acting like adults in the traffic. I love it, especially the British accent and how the kids act out:

They’re also publishing a series of videos called Cab Cam in which they’ve taken a black taxi through the streets of London to get the public’s opinion on this whole road issue:

You can get involved too. Simply tune in to their Facebook page and see what it’s all about and take part in the discussion. I sincerely hope that you are not one of those people who get’s easily angry in traffic, right?

When I was younger, I was all about fast cars (what young bloke isn’t?) but in recent years I’ve come to care less about speed and more about comfort and unique driving experiences. I also do not give a rat’s buttocks if somebody makes a mistake, I really can’t be bothered getting my temper all worked up about it. There’s more important things in life than to be affected by the mistakes of others – as long as it’s not something that might have resulted in serious injuries or maybe even death – then obviously it’s a good idea to try and relay a message to the other driver to be more careful in the future.

Guys, and girls, we gotta take care of each other out there on the roads. We drive around in heavy vehicles that can kill in an instant. I respect the road, do you?
