Aggressive driving and “road rage” are common phenomena among drivers who, for various reasons, become consumed with anger while operating their vehicle. Every driver has experienced aggression and road rage—from the commercial trucker cut off on an interstate to the parent rushing a car full of future stars to a little league game. It is easy for a driver to be single-minded when behind the wheel—in an instant you can be the victim, bystander or the aggressor.
With mask guidelines being eased and more businesses and events reopening across the United States in 2021, many more of the 280 million registered cars are expected on the road as people get back to work and resume leisure activities. These factors can easily provide the backdrop for an increase in traffic accidents and fatalities that stem from road rage.
