There are a lot of reasons as to why people experience road rage today, here, at Chelsea Truck Company, we have come up with some common, well-known reasons.

In a Hurry / Avoiding Lateness
Of course, it is just sods law that when we are in a mad rush to get somewhere ultra-quick, we want to drive as fast as we can and just happen to end up with a learner or a truck in front of us (how does that always seem to happen when you are in a hurry?). Do remember to be considerate of those learner drivers; you were there once.

Believe it or not, loud music is a major distraction while driving. When you have a constant banging noise going straight to your head, it’s hard to maintain a good level of concentration; you either significantly reduce it or lose it completely.

Traffic / Diversions
Roadworks are commonplace in this day and age, which means constant road diversions. You’ve allowed just about enough time for a journey, only to be faced with a diversion and not a clue as to the length of time it will take to get to your destination.
Other Stress
Everyday home life and work stress can promote road rage, so it is important to keep problems in life separate. The road doesn’t just hold you, it holds many other innocent drivers and children, too. Leave the worries at home.

Slow Drivers
From time to time, we come across the occasional snail driver, and it irritates us immensely. Although you can get pulled over for driving too slow as well, did it occur to you that this person may have children in their car? Maybe elderly? Someone in pain? Or even someone who has recently experienced a terrible road accident and is just getting their confidence back on the road? Tailgating only serves to distract the driver more and is extremely dangerous.

Breakdowns / Accidents
Obviously, there are many people who do not have everything they want in a car or have a car that has a habit of breaking down. Breakdowns and accidents on the road can cause severe delays and many of us curse and moan when we get stuck in the tail-back. Have you thought about ther person or people involved in the breakdown/accident? Are they ok? We’re pretty sure they didn’t envisage their day going this way!
