Road rage is nothing new but what is new is an increase in road rage incidents turning violent.
Aggressive driving is a factor in 54% of all fatal motor vehicle crashes, according to the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety. To shed light on this rapidly growing issue, we compiled the latest statistics and facts about road rage in the U.S.
Most drivers in the U.S. will come in contact with dangerous drivers. Road rage, commonly characterized by aggressive driving, is a factor in more than 50% of all car crashes that end in fatality, according to the AAA. In fact, in a separate years-long study, road rage episodes resulted in about 30 deaths and 1,800 injuries per year.
It is important to note that aggressive driving and road rage are not the same, although aggressive driving contributes to road rage. According to the NHTSA, aggressive driving is when “an individual commits a combination of moving traffic offenses so as to endanger other persons or property.”
Road rage takes things one step further into more violent and potentially dangerous territory.
This morning we have a video from Tulsa Oklahoma that shows a road rage shooting in the middle of a busy Tulsa intersection earlier this week.
The video showed a man getting out of an SUV and confronting another driver while stopped at a red light at the intersection of 11th and South Sheridan.
As the vehicle drives away, the man who got out of his SUV pulls out a handgun and starts shooting at the vehicle that was driving away. Several shots were heard being fired in the video.
Police were called to the scene but both involved left and witnesses gave conflicting accounts, police said.
Some sad that there s more to what the police saw on the video but also confirmed that the shooter shouldn’t have used a gun in this situation!
Multiple vehicles were damaged in the shooting, police said.
Police said that no arrests have been made.
