Road Rage and High Performance Cars 2008-01-0564

We examined the relationship between drivers who usually drive high performance cars versus drivers who usually drive other vehicles and road rage victimization and perpetration while controlling for demographic and driving characteristics based on population data from the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) Monitor, a telephone survey of adults in Ontario, Canada. Drivers of high performance cars, younger drivers, and those who drove more on busy roads and in stressful conditions experienced more road rage victimization. Road rage perpetrators were younger, drove more on busy roads and in stressful conditions. Drivers of high performance cars were also more likely to be road rage perpetrators. Efforts to reduce road rage should target drivers of more powerful vehicles, road congestion and driving stress.
