Drive Without Being Driven Crazy

Get Passive-Aggressive

You're behind a Lincoln Navigator that's poking along, changing speeds inexplicably. By the time you get a peek around that mass of metal and see no one's ahead, you begin to suspect a cell phone's to blame. Then there's the smoking gun--the Cell Phone Hand Change. (To relieve throbbing cell-phone ear, driver switches hands. Lincoln lurches left, driver corrects, Lincoln lurches right.) Getting hot under the collar? Before streaking around and flipping Mr. Chatty the bird, consider a more passive-aggressive approach. True, bumper stickers are very Berkeley, but a well-placed "Hang Up And Drive" sticker will send a message and let you take the high road while lowering your blood pressure.
