    One in eight drivers have experienced a road rage-related accident

    Have you been injured in a road rage-related accident? If you have, and somebody else was to blame, you could make a personal injury claim. Recently Accident Advice Helpline instructed a survey to find out more about road rage and how it affects drivers on the UK’s roads. The results are in, and some of them might surprise you. For instance, did you know that one in eight drivers have experienced a road rage-related accident? You could still be injured in an accident even if you’re a safe driver who doesn’t suffer from road rage.

    What causes road rage?

    Different things will trigger road rage for different people, and what causes one driver to see red may not affect another. The survey revealed that the most common cause of road rage was aggressive driving – things like tailgating – and that 51.9% of people experienced road rage when encountering this type of behaviour on the road. Coming in a close second was rude gestures, with almost 35% of people saying this behaviour made them angry. Almost 20% of people got road rage when other drivers were speeding. If you’re the type of person who is affected by road rage, you’re putting yourself and others on the roads at increased risk of being involved in an accident. And although the vast majority (almost 88%) of drivers surveyed said their road rage had never led to a collision, there is still a chance it could happen and leave you or somebody else injured.
