Sometimes even those who are usually calm can turn into a crazed maniac when they get on the road and someone cuts them off. Road rage has varying levels of madness from a mutter under your breath to physically getting out of your car and hitting someone over the head.
People are going to make mistakes, but things aren’t always clear cut with accidents occurring simply by accident or by irresponsible behaviour like texting or drink driving while behind the wheel. When mistakes happen on our roads the results can be critical, but when road rage comes into play it can also have serious consequences.
This week we are discussing road rage and whether you have ever “flipped the bird” at another motorist, followed someone or hopped out of the car to tell them what for. Or have you been the target of an angry driver?
Do you think people feel a sense of entitlement when it comes to our roads or are there really that many bad drivers out there that road rage is unavoidable? Is road rage the result of people feeling as though they have been put at risk, or something else?
