Furthermore, in some communities where double-parking is the norm, people may get easily frustrated or be used to honking at people who stop in the middle of the road. Thus, while you may be doing a chesed, they may not be aware of your virtuous action or honking by force of habit.
Thank you for highlighting this issue and allowing others to become more aware of how they drive – and for stressing the importance of maintaining one’s cool when behind the wheel. I hope this column increases the derech eretz and middos in all situations. Hatzlachah!Dr. Yael Respler
