If you are like a number of other drivers in Louisiana and across the country, you have gotten irritated while waiting in traffic, especially if you are running late to work or an important appointment. Driving behind a slow motorist or in rush hour can be frustrating and it is easy for some people to lose their patience while behind the wheel. In some cases, road rage may take over, and the driver may start to engage in dangerous driving behaviors that could put others on the road at risk. According to AAA, nearly 80% of U.S. drivers admit to having experienced road rage in the past year. While males are more likely to engage in aggressive driving, women drivers are also to blame.
