Study Reveals Women Experience More Road Rage Than Men

A new study has found women are lazier than men.

Maybe they’re saving up their energy for when they get behind the wheel.

That’s because when we’re talking about road rage, women have more than their fair share. And commuters are the most likely to lose their tempers behind the wheel — even if their drive to work is short.

According to a new CareerBuilder study, 61 percent of women admit to experiencing road rage, compared to 56 percent of men. Just over half of commuters say they’ve experienced it, too.

Overall, workers 55 and older were the least likely to get angry while driving, while workers between 25 and 34 were the most likely. Long drives and running late were the leading causes of road rage, but more than a third of people with commutes of less than five minutes said they aren’t immune, either.

Rosemary Haefner, vice president of human resources at CareerBuilder, said planning ahead, flexible work arrangements and listening to something relaxing — like soothing music or an audio book — can help. But if all else fails? Use public transportation. It’s not just good for the environment, it could be good for your stress levels, too.
