Study Reveals Women More Prone To Road Rage Than Men

A new survey of America's commuters reveals some interesting facts. Chief among them: many folks text and drive, while far more -- especially women -- have a tendency to fly off the handle.
The study was conducted by Harris Interactive between May 14 and June 4 of this year. Over 3,800 commuters were surveyed, all of whom were employed full-time and most of whom (83%) drove to their workplaces. For the purposes of the study, Harris limited participants to those who were not self-employed and not in government jobs.
When all the dust had settled, Harris found that America has some very angry drivers, and quite a few who aren't entirely safety-conscious. Here are the major takeaways:
- Women are more prone to road rage than men. Of those surveyed, 61% of women said that they had experienced road rage, compared to 56% of men.
- Younger drivers are more prone to road rage than older ones. Roughly 68% of respondents between 25 and 34 years old said they experienced road rage, while just 47% of those 55 and older said the same.

Sadly... I think women have waaaaaay too much on their plates and it is contributing to feeling more stressed while out on the road.
