Some Lambeth road traffic accidents are caused because of road rage, a factor that is sometimes exacerbated by having to deal with the busy London traffic. Road rage is morally unacceptable, but when you are the victim of it, it’s all too easy to get embroiled and allow yourself to be drawn into it too. This is however something you must try and avoid doing at all costs. One road rage driver is bad enough, but two is a recipe for disaster.
Road rage itself is not a crime – but GBH is – enter Mike Tyson
Strangely enough road rage is not an offence. But considering the violence it breeds, and the propensity for causing accidents and injuries, perhaps it ought to be. Road rage is something that grew in presence and strength throughout the 1990s and was undoubtedly fuelled by the incident in August 1999 involving Mike Tyson. The incident happened after his wife’s Mercedes was involved in an accident involving 3 cars in Maryland. According to reports, Tyson punched one 62 year old motorist in the face, and kicked another man in the groin. Tyson was given a two year jail sentence one of which was suspended.
85% of drivers admit incidences of road rage
To indicate the growing problem with road rage, a survey carried out in June 2012 found that two thirds of drivers had been on the tail end of some sort of road rage, and 85% of the people polled, themselves admitted to displaying road rage behaviour. It seems that something happens to men, (it is mostly men who exhibit this incredible behaviour) when they get behind the steering wheel.
