“What the hell is wrong with you,” has to be my favorite phrase while driving. Along with a select choice of curse words, I would prefer not to mention. Over the years I have noticed drivers becoming more and more aggressive, myself included. It could be said that road rage is caused by people with anger issues. Which is only a part of the problem. The truth is there are so many more factors to road rage. nearly every driver suffers from road rage, or have been on the receiving end. Once we enter our cars, some of us feel invisible, and believe that everyone needs move out of our way. which in turn has negative consequences, on ones well being and those of others around us. Road rage is extremely dangerous, there have been done right fist fights on the side of the road because someone cut someone else off. People have even lost their lives due to road rage. Could there be more to road rage other than anger? Could there be an underline medical issue, which causes road rage? These are questions I want to know the answer to.
Thesis Statement: a majority of road rage cases are done by male drivers who have anger issues and an underline medical issue.
