Many of us go through life trusting that others will abide by the law. They will stay on their side of the road. So when someone does not, many of our reactions can be shock and fear. I was personally not prepared for someone driving in my lane. I don't know if you can ever be prepared for it. But I guess that I would say that slowing down was a good idea. Waiting to see what the other person is going to do before they get too close was probably a good idea.
I know some who might advocate for jamming on the gas and driving as fast as you can at that other person to make them move, but that is not my style and I don't think that always works.
Next time you have a big decision that requires a reaction, if you can, take some time and weigh all the options. Talk to some others. If it requires immediate attention, pray that you make the right decision.
Go in peace and go with God.
