Abstract

Incidents of angry and aggressive driving, often referred to as “road rage,” are becoming more and more commonplace in everyday driving. Many people might benefit from counseling interventions to help manage driving anger and aggression. This article provides a review of research on road rage risk factors, a description of inventories for assessing angry and aggressive driving tendencies, and a discussion of intervention strategies to reduce angry driving behavior.
