Statistically speaking, the ACS says that men under the age of 19 are most likely to be the culprits of road rage incidents, but anyone can be at fault.

Road rage often begins with less dangerous habits, such as excessive honking or hand gestures. However, it can quickly escalate to risky moves such as tailgating. The ACS estimates that 50 percent of people who receive aggressive driving from another driver will respond with aggressive moves.

The ACS estimates that in a seven year period, there were 12,610 injuries from aggressive driving and 218 deaths. Some aggressive drivers admit to their behavior. In fact, two percent of all drivers say they have tried to run aggressive drivers off the road (turning into an aggressive driver themselves!).

As streets get more congested, especially in New York State, aggressive driving will continue to increase. The stress of driving in routinely congested traffic can bring out “road rage” in any driver, though traffic congestion is never an excuse for aggressive driving.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) points out that even though aggressive driving has existed since vehicles were created, for decades drivers were comforted by the fact that aggressive driving was rare. That is no longer the case. Aggressive driving really emerged as a “trend” in the 1990s and has steadily increased ever since.

According to the NHTSA, what used to be infrequent “rude” behavior on the road escalated into a series of national aggressive driving news reports around 2005. Dubbed a “national problem,” the NHTSA calls the behavior of some aggressive drivers in New York “occasionally bizarre.”

According to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety most motorists think that aggressive driving personally threatens them and their loved ones. In fact, 75 percent of motorists in a recent study said it was “very important” that something be done about unsafe driving.

Who Gets Hurt By Aggressive Driving In New York State? Aggressive Driving

Pedestrians and bicyclists can be injured or killed by aggressive driving. In a study of 10,000 cases of road rage 33,521 pedestrians and 4,782 bicyclists were killed by a vehicle. These figures were not included statistics in the study that revealed a 51 percent increase in serious road rage incidents between 1990 – 1996.

Aggressive driving can be especially dangerous in cities where there are many cyclists and people on scooters that have recently become popular. According to the NHTSA, aggressive driving has escalated because of large changes in city demographics. The U.S. population has increased by almost 100 million in the second half of the last century. Even though traffic safety overall has improved since the 1950s, including a decline in traffic fatalities, other risks—like aggressive driving—have increased.

There are several factors that contribute to aggressive driving according to the NHSTA:

  1. A decline of shared social values is a possible factor according to sociologists.
  2. A decline in the sense of community, particularly in big cities like New York, can increase the risk of aggressive driving.
  3. Impatience.
  4. Running late can make some drivers become aggressive. Adrenaline is pumping, as is fear of being scolded or embarrassed. All of the stresses of life, such as picking up kids from school or making it to work on time, can lead to aggressive driving.
