A new survey by Triple-A found 80% of us have had road rage at least once in the past year. And men are way worse about it than women . . . they’re three times more likely to get out of their car and actually confront another driver.
Here are eight more stats from the survey . . .
1. 51% of us have tailgated someone on purpose.
2. 47% have yelled at another driver.
3. 45% have honked at someone because they were angry.
4. 33% have made an angry gesture, like giving someone the finger.
5. 24% have tried to block another car from changing lanes.
6. 12% have cut someone off on purpose.
7. 4% have gotten out of their car to confront another driver.
8. And 3% have bumped or RAMMED another car on purpose.
The survey also found two out of three people think road rage is a bigger problem than it was just three years ago. And 90% agree it’s a serious threat to their personal safety.
