Road rage or aggressive behaviour by motorists can often lead to accidents. It is often seen that people behave in a rude manner with other drivers while driving; they may hurl abuses at someone in a traffic jam or even honk loudly. This results in an argument or even physical fight at times, which can again be dangerous for the ones fighting and other vulnerable road users.
