    Do you have road rage disorder?..16 million people could

    Study: 16 million might have road rage disorder

    CHICAGO, Illinois (AP) -- To you, that angry, horn-blasting tailgater is suffering from road rage. But doctors have another name for it -- intermittent explosive disorder -- and a new study suggests it is far more common than they realized, affecting up to 16 million Americans.

    Re: Do you have road rage disorder?..16 million people could

    I hate to admit it but at times I do go into a bit of a rage because of others driving habits at times. I've gotten alot better since my wife and son have been in my life though......

    But some people still really piss me off with the stupid crap they pull while driving.......


    I LOVE THE SMELL OF VICTORY IN THE MORNING AIR.

    I use to have a temper problem. My Grandfather told me I needed to control it. I took him at his word and have controled it for the most of my life. I only get real rage when someone hurts one of my kids.

    Re: Do you have road rage disorder?..16 million people could

    Oh man do I have a road rage story....
    NeumDog and I were driving over to his parents one Saturday morning and we were just getting on 494. There was this old guy in front of us with his wife probably in their 60's. Well Neum is driving behind him not really even tailing him but trying to get him to move over cause usually the left lane is for faster drivers right?? Well this guy stops in the middle of the freeway so Neum starts honking his horn. The guy opens his door like he's going to get out and start a fight and there's traffic coming around us so we couldn't get over right away but then we got over. As we get over this guy is like flipping us off and continues to cut us off every time we tried to get away from him and he would come up next to us flipping us off and saying F-you. This went on for about 10 minutes until we actually got off on to 35 and then we lost him. But I was so scared, it was unbelievable. I had never seen anything like that before and I hope I never have to. It was just crazy!

    Should have used your cell phone & called the cops & at the very least flip him off back.

    Yea, Neum was about to, and the thing is he can get kinda vocal in the car towards other drivers and I usually just sit there and don't say anything but this time I was swearing right along with him. I don't swear a lot but in this situation it was just insane.

    Should have told him that you'd rather drive crazy, than drive around with a crazy haircut. :grin:
