Surprising Survey Reveals Road Rage Differences Between Men and Women
How often do you get mad at other people who obviously cannot drive as well as you can? If you are a woman it's pretty often. According to a new survey, WOMEN are more likely than men to curse at other drivers in front of the kids, flip off other drivers, and go out of turn at a four-way stop. Men are more likely to honk at slow drivers, cut to the front when merging, steal parking spots, turn on their brights to antagonize someone, and KEY someone's car.
Here are the nine rudest things people do when they're driving, and how many of us do them.
41% of us have honked at someone for driving too slowly.
37% have CURSED in front of the kids while driving.
