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.
