Women Bear the Brunt of Rising Road Rage

Most if not all motorists have been a victim of road rage, but a recent research claims that it is on the increase. According a number of insurance companies 1 in 6 women and 1 in 10 men say they have been a victim of some kind of road rage. Many of the motorists questioned in this survey say they have been threatened.

The police and motorist groups are worried that the problem is getting worse, there have been a number of high profile murder cases that stemmed from a road rage incident.

The figures show that women actually bear the brunt of the abuse; the research concluded that 13% of women feel a lot less confident about driving by themselves. Many of these women claimed that is was the fear of being abused that made them fear driving on their own.

The research also uncovered some worrying statistics that 10% of all say that have or considered carrying a weapon in their car.

These statistics have highlighted the problem that the authorities now face. Car insurance companies are asking for the Government and the police to take action before the problem get out of control.
