According to AAA, 80 percent of active drivers have reported feeling a sense of aggression or road rage while driving in the last year alone.
Two out of three drivers also believe that road rage is worse today than it was three years ago. Behaviors associated with road rage may include yelling or screaming, tailgating, making angry gestures, or constantly honking.
Unsurprisingly, safety experts say to try to avoid becoming aggressive on the road. “Don’t risk escalating a frustrating situation because you never know what the other driver might do. Maintain a cool head, and focus on reaching your destination safely,” said Jake Nelson, AAA’s director of traffic safety advocacy and research.
Perhaps the motorists below should have gotten their aggression in check before interacting with their fellow drivers.
