Why are so many people irate when they are driving?
Road rage is a serious problem in the United States. Property damage, serious injuries, and in some cases even death have occurred as a result of road rage incidents.
Given the severity of the consequences, it is a problem that deserves attention. People with anger problems who are at risk for committing acts of road rage can be effectively treated with anger management. A number of studies indicate that with scientifically supported anger management, anger and aggressive acts can be reduced often times with treatment lasting 16 weeks or less. Unfortunately many of these individuals only enroll in therapy after a road rage incident and a court mandates therapy.
Finding ways to encourage drivers to utilize these services perhaps by insurance rate reductions or other means is something that could be considered.
