New Road rage statistics reveal cyclists and private hire drivers are amongst the top three most infuriating road users

5 May 2019


A new study conducted by HPI has revealed a quarter of UK road users have physically confronted another road user during a road rage incident.

Millions of Brits have admitted to having a fiery encounter after losing their cool while navigating the ever increasing congested roads, with Van drivers, cyclists and private hire drivers considered the top three most "infuriating" road users.  

Almost a quarter of motorists have also purposefully followed another car after a fiery encounter, The Sun first reported.

The worst offenders were men with 23 per cent admitting to physically confronting another driver.

One in five women also admitted losing their rag behind the wheel and even following a vehicle in a bid to vent their anger.

According to the study, taking out frustrations after a bad day was the common cause of road rage along with getting overtaken by another motorist, tailgating and traffic jams.
