Abstract: Road rage is a phenomenon which indicates that society is on the edge. Increasingly, aggression and violence have appeared to drift further into mainstream Indian society. Stories of school, shootings, workplace violence, viotence on the airlines and "road rage" abound. Road rage has recently been cited as equalling alcohol-impaired driving in the number of resultant motor vehicle accident related injuries and fatalities. The probability of becoming a victim on the roadways is significantly increased by the average exposure of the individual on the road. Presently, Indian roads and driving conditions are a point of discussion, moreover no comprehensive data is available as to how many persons die or are injured due to road rage cases. In the last three years in the capital of India sudden provocations prompted people to kill or physically assault each other. In 2005-2006 it topped the list of murder motives. In 2007 it was the second highest cause in murder list. This paper discusses results of opinion survey of experts as well as of the drivers & commuters, detailed analyses of the causes and timewise, vehicle-wise, location-wise aggressive behaviour among drivers. Paper further highlights action plan for mitigating measures for reducing aggressive behaviour among Indian drivers.
