According to this study, the most aggressive drivers are men, ages 35-50, who drive blue BMWs. The study also found that the most aggressive times on the roads are at 5:45pm on Fridays and the Monday morning commute. Imagine that!
In the study of 2,837 motorists, Land Rovers, Audis, Subarus and Vauxhalls were also on the “most aggressive” list, and the colors of black, silver, green and red followed the angry blue.
Drivers most often expressed road rage by shouting and swearing, followed by erratic driving and obscene gestures. Motorists were asked the pick the make and colour of car from which they have experienced the most incidents of road rage – and blue BMWs came out on top.
George Charles of VoucherCodesPro said: ‘During peak periods of traffic, whether it be the Monday morning school run or the hectic rush hour on a Friday evening, it is all too easy to allow the common manifestations of road rage to get the better of us as motorists.
‘This research, although slightly humorous in some of its findings, does indicate an important point.
‘Road rage is not something to be taken lightly and these results show that many motorists need to remind themselves that sometimes losing your temper whilst driving can result in serious altercations, assaults, and collisions that cause injuries or worse.’
