Tailgating 'fuelling road rage'
Drivers display a wide range of emotions when they come up against cases of road rage, according to new research.
While motorists need to keep a cool head when driving to ensure they do not suffer an accident and face car insurance claims, road rage is still a common problem in the UK.
Figures published by webuyanycar.com show that swearing and shouting back are two common responses to road rage, while at the other end of the scale, certain motorists are keen to just laugh off the aggressive actions of others.
One respondent to the site's survey even admitted to encouraging members of the Army to help him deal with a road rage incident.
The biggest causes of frustration among road users are tailgating and a lack of indication, the poll revealed.
Traffic jams and the use of mobile phones were other key causes of annoyance.
