Americans today are more stressed than ever, and sometimes that spills over into the way they drive. Road rage is a growing epidemic on roadways in Louisiana and throughout the country, and it’s making highways and interstates more dangerous.
In fact, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that the number of road rage-related traffic fatalities increased from 80 in 2006 to 467 in 2015. That’s nearly a 500 percent increase in a 10-year span.
Although road rage doesn’t get the same publicity as
speeding, drunk driving, and distracted driving, it’s something that all
drivers should be aware of, both in others and in themselves. Drivers who
experience road rage often lose control of their emotions and judgment,
significantly increasing the risk that they’ll engage in reckless and dangerous
behaviors when they’re behind the wheel.
Some drivers silently seethe behind the wheel when they’re
stuck in traffic or are cut off by other motorists. Other drivers take out their
aggression in more obvious ways, which can put everyone around them at risk. If
you recognize any of the following behaviors in other drivers while you’re on
the road, stay alert and cautious, as they may indicate road rage:
Although some people are more prone to experiencing road
rage than others, almost everyone is susceptible to it if they’re feeling
angry, frustrated, or impatient. In fact, even small changes in mood and
demeanor can be enough for drivers to experience impaired judgment and to be
more likely to make rash, dangerous decisions.
