Road rage: Media hype or serious road safety issue?
Elliott, Barry (1999) Road rage: Media hype or serious road safety issue? In Third National Conference on Injury Prevention and Control, 9-12 May 1999, Brisbane, Queensland.
The paper examines the nature and extent of the behaviours labelled 'road rage' in the media. It is argued that the term should not be used and that more serious forms of 'road rage' should be regarded as violence and assault. Aggressive behaviours labelled as 'road rage' are frequently a result of bad driving habits on the part of at least one of the parties involved. Behaviours subsumed under the heading of 'road rage' only rarely lead to injury. 'Road rage' or 'road violence' does not justify any diversion of existing road safety resources to the problem.
