Women tend to have worse road rage, Hyundai study finds

LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- Women tend to have worse road rage, according to a study conducted by car manufacturer Hyundai.

Researchers put sensors on the hands of 1,000 drivers and used webcams in the United Kingdom. They found that on average women were 12 percent angrier than men when driving.

It could also be because driving sparks an ancient defense instinct in women, according to researchers. Many previous studies show that 96.6 percent of people with road rage are men.
