• ‘Road Rage’ Making for Unsafe Highways

Richard Dahl on the FindLaw site advises that “America’s roads and highways are becoming ever more dangerous places.

“Death rates are escalating at frightening levels, largely due to reckless driving. So is road rage and, perhaps unsurprisingly, deadly road rage involving guns.

“Police don’t necessarily keep track of whether road rage is the cause of a shooting. Many states don’t recognize road rage as a criminal category and instead charge offenders with other violations or crimes like homicide or assault, often several in connection with a single incident. These can include speeding, unsafe lane changing, assault, or manslaughter.

“However, the gun violence prevention organization Everytown for Gun Safety has been maintaining a database of road rage shooting incidents since 2016 and reports that they are skyrocketing.”

There are many ways in which we need to calm down.
