Preventing lane changing aggresive 4wheelers

How can we make this less?????

Donít dilly dally, assertively make the lane change when you have space.

Relax means donít get upset or mad.

I totally avoid all the freeways, to many idiots driving there. Two lanes are much nicer and safer.

Agree with all these folks.....

One thing I remember from truck driving instructor was to make a mental inventory of every vehicle and hazard around you in traffic. Who's driving crazy, who's slow, who's left their blinker on etc. Look way ahead and way behind too. Anticipate. Sometimes type or brand of vehicle will give you an indication of who's gonna give ya problems. Rule of thumb was be a rock in the river and let the flow go around you, keep your headlights on and use the air horn.

So i am going to try this.......

After a close look the turn signal mounted just forward of the dual wheels
I think it is just not noticeable enough.

So i ordered two sets of led turn signals. One will be mounted in the dual tire are and the other will be mounted up front.

Should help i hope!!

I tend to be a very conservative RV operator in terms of my driving. For one thing, I am limited to 65 mph when I'm towing because of potential transmission overheating on my toad. I like lots of space in front of me because of additional braking length requirements. I let the aggressive folks move on through as they explore every possibility in the world of lane changing. I have noticed that when I change lanes, which isn't often, that cars behind me seem to think that my left-hand blinker is a signal for them to start around me on the left-hand side. No folks...I want to move into the left hand lane so the guy entering the ramp on my right can flow into the lane that I'm presently in.

I actually enjoy driving my RV and I hope all RV owners have the same experience. The engine is in back so it's quiet in the driver seat and I have a large windshield and a high vantage point as I cruise down the road. Very nice!

All the best to everyone and I sincerely hope that aggressive drivers aren't spoiling anyone's RV holiday! It's so important to "be in the moment"!

Before jumping in your RV, put on some smooth jazz, classical music, or whatever genre of music calms you down. Start listening to it 30 minutes before you leave and while you're driving. You'd be surprised just how much this WILL make a difference in your emotions while driving and even how you respond when that jerk cuts in front of your 30,000 lb rig. Side note....I would not recommend heavy metal music when driving your RV. You just might be the guy plowing over people in an "interstate mosh pit." LOL

Give the smooth jazz station a try. I think you'd immediately notice a difference
Good advice! "Music calms the savage beast".

I am rarely in any kind of hurry, so usually wait it out when people are being careless. The cameras really help a bunch, along with a good co-pilot.
