Do you get angry if someone honks at you or cuts in front of your car? If you answered yes, you are not alone.  More than three-quarters of U.S. drivers—78 percent admitted that they had expressed significant anger, aggression or road rage behind the wheel at least once in the past year—according to a study by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety.  In this video we turn to YouTube for example after example of Road Rage for this AASHTO Transportation TV examination called Road Rage by the Numbers. Our video explores the alarming statistics revealed in the AAA study released late last year.  As you’ll see the study paints an alarming picture of the types of aggressive behaviors many American drivers are expressing and it offers solutions to keep these potentially explosive situations from getting out of control.
