8 out of 10 drivers admit road rage

Portland Press Herald

Nearly 8 of every 10 U.S. drivers admit expressing anger, aggression or road rage at least once in the previous year, according to a survey  by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. The behavior could include following too closely, yelling at another driver, cutting them off or making angry gestures. An estimated 8 million drivers engaged in more extreme behavior on streets and roads that might be considered “road rage,” including bumping or ramming a vehicle on purpose or getting out of their cars to confront another driver, the foundation said.

This is why I find XM Radio's SPA channel so useful - always some soothing music playing.

Tesla AutoPilot helps too - I just give Janne a call and let AutoPilot take care of the stop and go...

Cheers, Tom
