Road rage is on the increase.
A study by the American Automobile Association revels that incidents of violence while driving are increasing by 7 percent per year.
For every reported incident of road rage, of course, there are hundreds of more minor situations that go unreported. Driving is not nearly as safe as it once was when people approached it with more courtesy.
Although tough laws have begun to address the problem of drunk driving, the legal system has not yet made a similar effort to address the problem of drivers who use vehicles as a means of dealing with their anger.
