A new online test which measures your aggression behind the wheel has been created – and women are actually more volatile than men.
The Road Rage Ranker has been created by Jennings Motor Group and it reveals how angry motorists feel in a variety of different situations
Based on an initial 1,500 people completing the test, the results saw women scoring more highly in the annoyance stakes than men.
The test rates drivers’ responses to the following…
- Potholes in the road
- Traffic jams
- Road works
- Drivers on the phone
- Bad parking
- Lorries overtaking (and then travelling at the same speed as the vehicle they are overtaking
- Drivers who don’t give way when they should
- Motorists who keep their full beams on
- People who hog the middle lane
