A new AAA report reveals road rage continues to be a major concern. The agency conducted a survey of 2,700 drivers around the country, finding nearly 80% of them experienced aggression or anger while behind the wheel in the past year. AAA’s Gary Bubar says some people will create dangers on the road because of anger.
“The most common that we found was tailgating on purpose,” Bubar told WSJM. “You pull up right behind someone to show tem that you’re unhappy with what they’ve just done, which increases the danger for both of you.”
Other common road rage-inspired actions include yelling, making rude gestures, and honking to show annoyance. Bubar says it’s important for all drivers to remain calm, give themselves plenty of time, and learn how to forgive the driving of others.
