A third of drivers say they have been involved in a road rage incident – and a fifth of them say the encounters have led to violence.

There has been a rise of 59 per cent in road rage incidents in the past year alone and 70 per cent since 2012, according to research.

The study by comparison website Confused.com, which includes Freedom of Information data from 15 police forces, says 37 per cent of Britons admit to having been involved in an incident of road rage. And nearly 19 per cent say it led to ‘a physical confrontation’.
