Road Rage: By The Numbers


It’s a well known fact that getting behind the wheel of a car has the tendency to bring out the worst in people. There’s no shame in admitting it; it’s happened to the best of us. Well, has come along and done a pretty interesting survey to put some numbers behind what pretty much everyone already knew – people are a little bit crazy sometimes.

A total of 500 men and 500 women were given a survey to determine who was guilty of various common aggressive road behavior, and it produced some pretty entertaining results.

A long stretch from “the fairer of the sexes,” it was women who were more likely to flip off other drivers and swear in front of children.

Not to be outdone, men held up their end of the road rage scale by being the ones more likely to flash their brights at oncoming cars as well as being more likely to key someone’s car.

You can check out their list for a side by side comparison of those and some other interesting facts. Maybe you’ll even take something away from it and remember that the next time someone cuts you off. We could all use a little more serenity on the highway. Or at the very least, you’ll have a better idea of whether you should be expecting to get the bird or a new custom paint job.

There might not be much you can do about those other cars on the road, but at the very least, whenever you need work on your car, you can bring it to Newton’s in High Point. We’re a short drive from High Point University, and we can help you with just about any repair you need!
