Ho Chi Minh City, also known as Saigon, in Vietnam, where it’s a feat to cross the street, let alone drive. And yet, no one gets cross. There is no road rage here.

One option is to move to Southeast Asia, where driving rules are mere suggestions. But there’s another way.

I gave up road rage about five years before I moved to Southeast Asia. Little did I know the steps I created to free myself from this bad habit would help me immensely while driving not only on the other side of the road, but on the literal other side of the world.
