Road Rage & Aggressive Driving: A View from the driver’s seat/ 20 minute Video,

“Road rage” is deliberate, violent behavior by a driver in response to a real or imagined traffic
grievance. It occurs when something “snaps” in a driver who might usually be a careful, law-
abiding motorist. “Aggressive” drivers are motorists who often ignore traffic laws, and drive
erratically as their “normal” pattern of behavior. Aggressive drivers may trigger road rage in
others, or may develop road rage themselves. This timely program supports driver education
units regarding factors that contribute to impaired driving, particularly the effects that
attitudes and emotions have on driving skills and decisions. The video also provides valuable
examples for life skills units on anger management. Students learn safety measures to follow
if they are the object of an enraged driver, and how to manage their emotions behind the
wheel to avoid becoming enraged themselves. The message is reinforced by examples of the
consequences of road rage episodes. Students learn that adopting a cooperative driving
attitude and giving other drivers that benefit of the doubt can prevent these tragedies.
