SHARE Half of motorists in N.J. feel road rage, survey discloses

In the latest proof of road rage on U.S. highways, a survey released Friday found that more than half of New Jersey's 5.4 million licensed motorists are angry while behind the wheel and nearly half try to punish other drivers on the road.

"These findings are very troubling. The problem appears much greater than anyone realized," said John Tiene, executive director of the New Jersey Insurance News Service, which requested the survey from the American Automobile Association (AAA).Angry or aggressive drivers cause at least 80,000 accidents a year in New Jersey, the most densely populated state in the nation, the news service said.
