Do you know what the typical road rage offender looks like? Do you know that they have a certain profile? Research shows that the average road rager is male (no surprise really), however, not by a large margin. Males account for 56% of offenders and females 44%. The most common act done by a person with road rage is swearing at other drivers. Perhaps most unsettling is that research has shown that a full 11% of drivers sometimes carry a gun while driving. This of course should scare you a bit particularly when you have witnessed someone with road rage. It was also found that most perpetrators of road rage drive nice cars such as BMW’s, Land Rovers, and Audis. This would lead us to believe that most angry drivers are also likely to be financially well off. We have all been witness to drivers who exhibit road rage so this information should be a key reminder to remain sane while driving.
