AAA's Foundation for Traffic Safety has tips on how to avoid becoming a victim of road rage.  There three pieces of advice are Don't Engage, Don't Offend, and Adjust Your Attitude.

They suggest that if you accidently cut someone off, try to apologize. Make an appropriate hand gesture if you can safely do so.  If you encounter an angry or aggressive driver, they recommend avoiding eye contact. They say communicating with an angry driver can make the situation seem personal.  A separate AAA Foundation study examined 10,000 road rage cases over a seven year period.
