Road rage occurs when one driver has an aggressive response to the actions of another driver. In most road rage instances, the “rage” response is much more severe than the initial action taken by the victim. According to the American Automobile Association, some examples of aggressive behavior and road rage include:
- Tailgating, often extremely;
- Yelling or screaming at another driver;
- Make crude hand gestures;
- Honking excessively;
- Blocking another vehicle from changing lanes or merging;
- Purposefully cutting off another driver;
- Forcing another driver off the road;
- Purposefully bumping or ramming another vehicle; and
- Getting out of the car to confront another driver.
While these actions range in severity, many of them may directly cause a car accident. Road rage incidents often cause:
- Intentional or unintentional rear-end collisions;
- Sideswipe accidents and unsafe lane changes;
- Deliberate broadside accidents; and
- Collisions resulting from one car leaving the roadway.
Sometimes road rage incidents can result in physical confrontations outside of the vehicle. Road rage may result in the use of a weapon or provoke someone to use their vehicle as a weapon against another driver. Whatever the case is, the raging person is usually at fault for the accident, whether you made them angry with a small mistake or not.

According to AAA, most drivers in the United States admit to some amount of aggressive driving behavior. In fact, more than half of all accidents between 2003 and 2007 resulted from one or more drivers behaving aggressively. In a study conducted by AAA:
- 51% of participants admitted to purposefully tailgating;
- 47% admitted to yelling at another driver;
- 33% admitted to making angry gestures;
- 12% admitted to cutting off another vehicle on purpose; and
- 3% admitted to bumping or ramming another vehicle on purpose.
If this data is generalized to the entire population, that means at least 6 million drivers have intentionally bumped or rammed another vehicle on the road.
Road rage has many causes, and most of them are psychological. Some people may be more inclined to aggressive reactions because of:
- Underlying anger management problems;
- Stress at home, work or school;
- Lack of sleep or proper nutrition;
- Irritability as a result of substance abuse; and
- Many other underlying issues.
If you find you are quick to anger or experience aggressive thoughts toward others, it is important that you seek professional help to manage these emotions BEFORE you put your life, and the lives of others, at risk. Counselors can help you overcome stress, manage anger and balance the demands of daily life.
AAA underscores the importance of obeying the rules of the road and recommends these steps to drivers who may be the victim of road rage:
- Avoid eye contact with seemingly aggressive drivers;
- Do not try to fight aggression with aggression;
- Reroute to a police station or other public space if you feel you are being targeted or followed by an aggressive driver;
- Stay calm;
- Call 911 if you feel you are in danger; and, most importantly:
- DO NOT RESPOND.
