There have been many various articles and news stories about road rage and the accidents and deaths that often result from drivers' rage and discourtesy. In my opinion, there could be a solution to alleviate a portion of that problem.

How about countering that rage atmosphere or feeling by building pride and courtesy in Utah drivers.Perhaps billboards, signs or posters placed along roads and highways stating that courtesy is really the best and safest way to drive.

Some of those signs might be as follows:

Courtesy is a healthy habit

Surprise your driving neighbor - be courteous

Treat other drivers as you would like to be treated - be courteous

Safety first - drive courteously

There must be hundreds of clever slogans that would motivate motorists to have pride in being courteous, safe drivers. Occasionally we all need to be reminded of the need to be courteous.
