A study claims that men aged 35-50 who drive blue BMWs are the most aggressive drivers on Britain’s roads. That is, they are the likeliest road rage culprits. Drivers of Audis, Land Rovers, Subarus and Vauxhalls are also pretty angry according to the report, which surveyed 2,837 people.
The study was carried out for discount website VoucherCodesPro and found that Range Rover owners are the second most likely to lose their temper on the road. Blue was seen as the most aggressive colour, followed by black, silver, green and red.
When do you think drivers are angriest? You guessed it! Peak time for road rage is 5.45pm on a Friday during rush hour, closely followed by the miserable Monday morning commute. These are the most stressful times for drivers trying to get to and from work.
Of course gender was going to come in at some point, so let’s put this as diplomatically as possible. Men said they lost their temper behind the wheel seven times a month on average, while women got angry on only three occasions.
The most common expression of road rage is shouting and swearing, followed by erratic driving and obscene gestures. How do you express your road rage and are you a typically angry driver?
