    What are the most common road rage reactions?

    As anybody who has ever suffered from road rage knows, we can’t always predict the way we’ll react when we see red behind the wheel. Getting angry whilst driving could have serious consequences not only for you and your family, but also for other drivers and pedestrians on the roads; so keep your cool. A recent survey conducted by Accident Advice Helpline has revealed some of the most common road rage reactions; they’re largely what you might expect, with a few surprises.

    How do we react when we have road rage?

    Road rage reactions can vary wildly, depending on the person involved and how angry they get. But the survey revealed that around 56% of us use our car horn when we’re affected by road rage, with just over 40% of us saying that we react by swearing at other drivers or pedestrians. Tailgating is another fairly common road rage reaction, with just over 15% of us saying we’ve done this in the past.

    The good news is that threatening behaviour isn’t common – in fact those who said they would resort to it were in the minority. Just 7.7% of those surveyed said they would verbally insult or threaten another driver. But behaviour such as tailgating is worrying because this and other forms of aggressive driving could easily cause an accident. If you’ve been injured in a collision caused by another driver suffering from road rage, you could find yourself eligible to claim personal injury compensation.

    If it has been three years or less since you were injured in an accident that was somebody else’s fault, Accident Advice Helpline could help you claim compensation for your pain and suffering – as well as any loss of earnings.
