    Women are less likely to step out of the car and get into a fist fight over a minor incident.

    Harris Interactive surveys are based only on self reporting- they are not scientifically valid. I complete surveys for this company.

    If we believe that women are convinced they are helpless beings who need to be supported by government or men at every step of their lives, we could also believe they would be more prone to road rage. http://www.barackobama.com/li...

    But certainly, not everyone believes that. I do think it seems logical that since there is a level of power-equality on the highways, it would be human nature that the people most prone to act-out would be those who typically feel oppressed in some way. Road rage is their chance to push back and display some power... or so they think. If data supports this, I can believe it's true.

    To me and to many others, the whole "road rage" thing just seems pathetic. Really? You're losing your mind because the bus stopped to pick up passengers? Really? Someone is driving slightly slower than you or taking too long to pull into a parking space and now your day is a wreck? I don't get it. I've been annoyed by people on the road, I get THAT. I don't get the point where people fly into a rage and react to it.

    Yea, I think my wife gets more upset and has more bravado in a car than normal.
    I think men weigh the consequences that some motorist you get ugly with (flip off) might go postal on you and start shooting. Women don't think of being shot at in a car.

    Women are more emotional than men, and I can see where this could have that effect. However, men are "conquistadores," and interference with the conquest can cause road rage as well. Angry people exist in both genders.

    Through my experience, my father is more likely to rage over something minor. My mother would be the reason people rage on the road.

    There are a lot of bad drivers out there and I don't know that women are more prone to road rage. I do notice that soccer moms driving their minivans or big suvs are extremely impatient and distracted. They will blow past you well over the speed limit only to slam their brakes at the red light ahead they failed to notice. Running late to "Logan's" soccer practice or "Caleb's" karate lessons is not an excuse to take somebody out.

    the other day my grandad ws driving around a round-about and woman ran into the side of him. she wouldnt stop moving and carried on moving my grandad out of the lane he was in because she wanted to go there. so from that i think women are more prone to road rage.

    My experience is they cause road rage by yacking on cell phones while driving in the left lane of the freeway in the slowest car on the road. I see the women with their rear view mirrors turned towards themselves so they can see how pretty they look behind the wheel. I have watched as they apply make-up and brush their hair while shutting the world out. Often I have witnessed women who claim the left lane as their domain during rush hour when cars are buzzing along at 75+ mph while they want to go 50 mph. Only an act of God would get these dames to move over into the right lane. Maybe they enjoy having everyone cut them off and flip them the finger? Perhaps this is all part of the college town culture, but I can tell you they REALLY get people steamed.

    I feel your pain on this one. You could hit them with a brick and they wouldn't move out of the left lane.

    Left lane slow drivers get my goat also. Many motorists don't know that the left lane is for passing normally, and the right lane is for driving. Now if the free-way is packed then it's not much of an issue what lane you drive in, except these people who wait to the last ¼ mile on a packed free-way to get over for their exit lane. Another pet-peeve of mine.

    I just love these pinheads too --->

    1. The halfwits that wait until the last six inches of a closing lane before moving over for construction. This way everyone has to hit their breaks hard to keep from smashing into this prize-winning idiot;

    2. The boneheads who see you trying to merge onto the freeway and not move over or make a space for you to enter the highway. It's as if they think you're trying to get ahead of them in a drag race when all you want to do is share the public roadway with them and go to work.

    3. How about the people who obviously have had frontal lobomies because they don't know how to turn on their head lights in torrential rain or snow? It's as if they had to pay $20/hour for their lights to be on instead of considering safety-minded drivers wanting to see them in poor visibility.

    4. How about the jackass that pulls right out in front of you on ice and snow? You can almost hear them say, "I bet you can't stop!" as your heart jumps into your throat.

    5. Then there's the moron who hurrys up, pulls out into trafic on a busy highway and thinks the speed limit is 15 mph?
