When we take into consideration the perspective of the Irish society with regards to road rage, we find out that the situation within the country is not at all different to what is rampant throughout the world. This means that road rage is a common phenomenon which is experienced by drivers around Ireland. The most common occurrence of road rage is within towns and this follows closely to a road and even in some cases includes motorways as well, where strict measures are in place to avoid the very same. All said and done, within the European nations, road rage has remained as a constant stigma of tension and worry as far as the government agencies and police authorities are concerned and without a change in the make up (thinking) of the drivers, there seems to be no way to look forward.
Road rage are more common within South England, where the stats show a 29% happening while 18% is the figure provided for the same cases within North of England. Eastern England has a statistic of 15% but since we are discussing the Irish perspective, we find that the figure for this country stands at 3% which is something that can be written home about.
The figures for Wales and Scotland are at 5% and 6% respectively which suggests that road rage within Ireland is at the minimal possible level. Nonetheless measures are being taken with the passage of time to educate the drivers and indeed the general public with respect to their road responsibilities and to treat each and every pedestrian and/or driver with sheer respect and nothing else.
One of the most important reasons that has been given for having road rage on the part of the drivers is that they were mentally disturbed or in agony due to family problems and the like. This means that road rage accounts itself more than half of its share on the family issues. These issues need to remain within homes and not publicly made a mess out of, at least on the roads in front of Tom, Dick and Harry. Research into road rage has suggested that United Kingdom is the worst affected by this violent behavior and thus it needs to get its act right if it wants to come down the research listings.
‘White Van Man’ has been indicted 13% of all the road rage incidents that have happened within the UK. Three in five of the offenders on the road felt pretty fine with their attitude on the road and stated that since it was the mistake of the victim in the first place, the same deserved to receive it for his/her own betterment. This means that more than anything else, there needs to be an attitude of empathy before a person vehemently demonstrates road rage and brings his/her own personality and eventually the actions under question.
