Research has shown that 9% of female road users admit to being angry behind the wheel, compared with 8% of men. The findings, by the RAC, also show that one in 10 motorists admits to some form of road rage including verbal abuse, gestures and physical attacks.
Mark Hodges, legal affairs manager at RAC Legal Services, says: "Too many motorists still view their journey as more important than their safety. Driver error is a factor in almost all of the 200,000 accidents on our roads each year. Motorists need to appreciate the risks they’re taking and calm down behind the wheel."
