How to Handle Road Rage
Drivers of all ages can experience road rage, or excessive aggression and hostility while driving. Road and Travel magazine reports that 67 percent of drivers between the ages of 18 and 24 and 30 percent of drivers 65 and older show signs of road rage. Most cases of road rage occur in reaction to other drivers or to road conditions, and this frustration can manifest itself in a number of dangerous ways.
Road rage can cause drivers to drive recklessly or aggressively and as a result, cause accidents.

Avoiding Road Rage
Most drivers will experience road rage at some point in their lives. Statistics show that men are more likely to have road rage than women, and surprisingly, drivers with children in the car experience road rage more than drivers without. Some helpful tips to avoid dangerous driving brought on by road rage include:
- Get enough sleep
- Leave for your destination with enough time
- Turn aggressive music down or off and listen to classical music instead
- Relax and take some deep breaths
- If necessary and safe to do so, pull the car over, get out, and walk around
Road rage or aggression is a normal human reaction when traffic is moving slowly or another driver frustrates you, but it can lead to devastating accidents.
