What Is Road Rage?

Road rage is commonly characterized by aggressive driving. It is a factor in more than 50% of all car crashes that end fatally, according to the AAA (American Automobile Association). Florida was the top-ranking state for road rage with a firearm from 2014 to 2016, with Texas and California ranking 2nd and 3rd. As of July 31, 2021, 17 states had anti-road rage legislation pending. However, California was not on that list.
