- A phenomenon ‘road rage’ has emerged, one that sociologists, medical experts, government officials, the media, and the general public have begun taking seriously as a result of many troubling reported incidents.
- In the United Kingdom, the RAC has offered a definition of road rage as ‘unchecked behaviour designed to cause harm to another road user; behaviour not normally in the behavioural repertoire of the person’.
- The UK definition also mentions the ‘dehumanisation process’ caused by frustration, from traffic and other drivers, and a ‘sense of insulation, protection and empowerment provided by a car’.
- In the United States a further distinction is made whereby road rage is seen as an intentional act that ‘endangers or is likely to endanger persons or property’.
- The definitions described separate road rage from dangerous, or reckless, driving, which is seen as a traffic violation, while road rage is viewed as a criminal offence.
