Abstract

Driver anger and aggressive driving is a topic of continued interest and receives constant public attention, especially in the media. Although there are many situational and person-related factors contributing to aggressive driving behaviours, the most widely recognised among them is driver anger or frustration. Many studies in aggressive driving are thus devoted to measuring the anger aroused in a variety of anger provoking situations. Although the results obtained in the several previous studies were quite consistent in general, there are substantial variations across samples due to difference in the social, economic and political environment. This paper presents the results of a survey of a convenient sample of college students in a Canadian university on their driving anger using the Driver Anger Scale and compares the Canadian results with those from UK, USA and Australia.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
