Do you drive with stress and frustration? Do you frequently complain about other drivers or get involved in hostile interactions with other motorists? Are you afraid for your teenage drivers in this climate of highway warfare? We're in the midst of an escalating epidemic of aggressive driving, which eats up 250 billion dollars a year in economic cost and causes the misery associated with 6 million injuries every year. Now the government has declared war on road rage with tough new laws that can land people in jail for behaviors they're used to doing every day.Traffic psychology educators Dr. Leon James and Dr. Diane Nahl trace the aggressive driving problem to its roots in childhood when child passengers imbibe their parents' aggressiveness towards other motorists and their cynicism towards regulations and the law. By the time teenagers begin to drive they've been exposed to years of media portrayals of the fun and excitement of aggressive driving with no serious consequences. The authors argue that road rage and aggressive driving are common traffic emotions experienced by the vast majority of drivers.This authoritative book-the first to synthesize the subject of aggressive driving-presents conclusions of recent studies, highlights citizen activism, and summarizes legislative and police initiatives. Besides vivid anecdotal evidence and personal stories of typical road rage incidents that we have all experienced, James and Nahl present self-tests that readers can use to estimate their own road rage tendency, and they prescribe activities to help every driver learn self-improvement and self-awareness skills behind the wheel. The authors outline their innovative three-step program to help people transform themselves from aggressive to supportive drivers.This book redefines driver education for all drivers, including commercial drivers and truckers. Our traffic emotions need to be trained, the authors stress, and they provide the explanations and activities needed to strengthen critical thinking about road events.Leon James, Ph.D. (Honolulu, HI), the nation's foremost authority on road rage and aggressive driving, is frequently quoted in the nation's press and has raised the standard of discussion on this topic. His expert testimony at congressional hearings in July 1997 helped legislators to realize that aggressive driving is a cultural problem. Diane Nahl, Ph.D. (Honolulu, HI), is associate professor of Information and Computer Sciences in the Library and Information Science Program at the University of Hawaii and is the founder of the new field of Driving Informatics. Dr. Nahl and Dr. James have authored the RoadRageous aggressive-driving video course, which is used in driving schools and court-mandated traffic violator schools. They're also active in aggressive-driving prevention training for law enforcement, and their Web site at DrDriving.org provides services for older drivers, commercial drivers, and teen drivers.

It is meant to address issues that are not covered in the state-issued driver study guide, to instill defensive driving techniques that are ordinarily learned over time, with experience. It is meant to STOP wrecks, STOP personal injury and lifelong debilitation, STOP lawsuits in regard to liable death or injury, STOP insurance claims, loss of vehicle, payout of deductibles, STOP loss of time from work or school, STOP a blemished driving record with corresponding increases in premiums, and STOP the stress and hassle that go with a wreck.

The book is meant to be a humorous romp through experiences in the life of the author. That would be me and Im just a regular guy, but there is certainly a large portion of my conservative attitude thrown in as well. Which would in some eyes make me an irregular guy. Im well traveled, having spent a good deal of time in Europe both as a young man and in my later years. Call me a satirist or humorist if you want but I'm going to give you a bit of Midwestern born philosophy here. 1940 December 13 in Omaha, Nebraska, to be exact. All of these stories happened to me. Some are just my philosophy colliding with my sense of humor. Growing up there was a lot of laughter and good humor in our family and I firmly believe because of that Ive managed to get through my life to this point mostly in tack. My grand parents on my fathers side of our family were college professors of English and all of their children dabbled in writing. Nearly all of us were born in the Midwest and nearly all of us at one time have attempted to write for publication. A long time ago the family self published a small book titled "Kernels From A Cracked Nut". It was mostly a parody of famous poems. Most of the family members bought copies. No one else did. But Im a bit stubborn so Ive stolen the title from my family and this book is in fact the second, Kernels From a Cracked Nut. Enjoy!

Although the title of this book indicates One parents story, struggle its actually about the battle between all parents and teens; or simply adults and teens in general. I say battle, but it has actually risen to the potential for what I call generational warfare. Basically, teenagers have little respect for adults; especially parents. The protocol is simple; and yes most adults do recall progressing strategically in the same way during their own youth. Even before were born; we make demands. Then after weve grown a few years; we make many more demands. By the age of ten to thirteen, we more than expect those demands to unquestionably be met. Finally by the last 3 to 5 years of youth while living at home with our parents; weve assessed who our biggest enemy is and how we would like to take down who we now see as both an enemy, and a dictator. Simply put: after youve bitten the hand that feeds you for so long; that hand begins to appear useless. And once that represents uselessness; the person behind that outreaching hand, also serves no purpose to you. So the stage is set. Teenagers wont look back with any sense of appreciation; and parents, who also continued to grow; will look back and wonder: was it all worth it. Many are optimistic, while others are in denial. But most can only feel one thingWhat was I thinking.
