More fear of road rage

THREE-QUARTERS of motorists feel they are more likely to suffer a road rage attack than five years ago, new research suggests.

Contrary to popular belief, it is the younger generation aged between 26 and 35 who feel more at risk than motorists aged 55 and over.

While more than 26% of those quizzed in the study by Motoreasy were also worried about car crime, one in five respondents was more concerned about the threat of road rage.

David Gerrans, managing director of the car care specialists, said: ‘The car may now be a way of life for 27 million of us, but it’s also clear there is a greater sense of anxiety and fear, be it the stress of getting to or from work hassle-free, or the risk of crime such as car-jacking or being hit by an uninsured motorist.’
