Road rage is a serious hazard that endangers everyone on the road. When drivers let anger take control, they make reckless decisions, increasing the risk of accidents. Speeding, aggressive lane changes, and tailgating are common behaviors linked to road rage, often leading to collisions. This dangerous behavior not only puts the angry driver at risk but also threatens the safety of passengers, pedestrians, and other drivers. Moreover, road rage can escalate into physical confrontations, creating even more danger. Staying calm and composed behind the wheel is crucial for preventing accidents and ensuring a safer driving environment for everyone.
