Women tend to have worse road rage than men, study finds

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- Women tend to have worse road rage, according to a study from 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.

Researchers say it could be because driving sparks an ancient defense instinct in women. Many previous studies show that 96.6 percent of people with road rage are men.
