What is "road rage"?
Road rage is a very serious problem in society today. Road rage is basically driver hostility, driver anger that materializes in the form of felonious actions such as getting out of a car and punching someone in the nose, or beating another car. Or worse yet, shooting another driver which you do hear that in the news from time to time. Road rage is the result of aggressive driving, which stems from driver frustration on the road. For example; traffic delays, unplanned stops and things like that.
What are the warning signs that a driver is aggressive?
Some of the things you can look for out on the road to spot an aggressive driver would be tailgating. Lane jumpers--the people who jump from lane to lane always trying to get ahead of other cars--are often aggressive drivers, as are horn honkers, fist wavers, and of course look out for drivers yelling at other drivers, definitely aggressive drivers.
