Stats: Emotions and Driving
  • Teen drivers with strong negative (very upset, stressed, angry or sad) or positive (very happy or excited) emotions were observed more frequently than teen drivers angry enough to have road rage.
  • Behavior that teens describe as “road rage” is seen by more than half of the respondents.
  • Emotions, whether positive or negative, can have a powerful effect on drivers of all ages. This is particularly true of teens, who experience academic pressures and dramatic emotional changes.
