Drive for civility

Drive for civility



The man in the red Subaru is furious because the guy in the black Honda has just cut him off. In a cloud of anger, he speeds up to return the favor.

But suppose the Honda driver's maneuver was accidental, a blind-spot slip-up.

Can the damage be undone?

An apology might help - but how do you do it?

Psychologists Arnold P. Nerenberg and R. Jerry Adams, national experts in aggressive driving issues, suggest "Sorry" signs.

Write "Sorry" in thick, bold, black letters on a white background. Laminate the sign and keep it handy.

Use it whenever you're at fault.
