    Road rage risk highest on Fridays in August

    Road rage risk highest on Fridays in August

    Instagram has been used to discover when you’re most likely to be the victim of road rage.

    The US study found that 6pm on a Friday in August is the worst time for road rage. This is when the number of ‘road rage’ incidents peak, according to the use of the ‘#roadrage’ hashtag on the social media site.

    Hot summers

    The study, which went through over 65,000 posts, reveals the summer months are the worst – which isn’t surprising as hot weather can trigger temper tantrums.

    The summer months also tend to see an increased number of cars on the road, as families head out of town for holidays.

    And, especially in the US, more people are likely to be drinking behind the wheel during the warm summer days.

    In the UK, Friday, August 26 could be a particularly bad day for road rage as it marks the start of the Bank holiday weekend.

    Rush hour rage

    However, they were able to further narrow the field down to Fridays when the study revealed incidents of road rage increased as the week wore on – until it sharply dropped on Saturdays.

    These then peaked during the rush hour drive home.

    In the US, Hawaii had the most cases of road rage. This could be because traffic in Honolulu was recently ranked third-worst in the nation.
