Do you suffer from road rage?
Most likely, you do.
A new study released by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety shows that 80% of U.S. drivers admit expressing anger, aggression or road rage at least once in the previous year.
Here is the breakdown of road rage behaviors:
- Purposefully tailgating: 51 percent (104 million drivers)
- Yelling at another driver: 47 percent (95 million drivers)
- Honking to show annoyance or anger: 45 percent (91 million drivers)
- Making angry gestures: 33 percent (67 million drivers)
- Trying to block another vehicle from changing lanes: 24 percent (49 million drivers)
- Cutting off another vehicle on purpose: 12 percent (24 million drivers)
- Getting out of the vehicle to confront another driver: 4 percent (7.6 million drivers)
- Bumping or ramming another vehicle on purpose: 3 percent (5.7 million drivers)
Why is the number so high?
And what can we do to stop it?
Well, I had the pleasure of chatting with GMA’s George Stephanopoulos and Amy Robach about just that.
