Road Rage Statistics

Road rage, characterized by aggressive driving, is responsible for more than half of all fatal car accidents. An independent study conducted over a year found that road rage is responsible for the deaths of 30 persons and the injury of 1,800 each year.

Road rage-related injuries and deaths have risen every year since 2018, according to Everytown Research & Policy (ERPP).

Nearly a third of all collisions were caused by road rage. When reckless or aggressive drivers run their vehicles, other people’s lives are endangered.

Every 18 hours, a road rage incident results in a fatal shooting. In the past year, more people have been killed or injured due to road rage incidents than at any other time in history.

These facts are worrisome and problematic. Distracted or careless driving kills and injures thousands of people each year.
