New evidence from UK drivers suggests that aggressive and angry behaviour on the country’s roads is commonplace.
A recent survey carried out by the Van Discount Company found 54% of respondents claimed they had experienced road rage in the last year.
Of those admitting to experiencing road rage, 4% of road users admitted to threatening to damage another driver’s car and one-in-ten (11%) said they switched their lights on full beam in an attempt to annoy the other road user.
Meanwhile, almost half of respondents (41%) of users thought bus drivers were the safest drivers on UK roads with taxi drivers labelled the most unsafe.
Van Discount – www.van-discount.co.uk - surveyed 500 motorists and two-thirds (64%) of those questioned believed that anti-road rage campaigns would help make a difference.
