Road rage incidents, fatalities, and shootings are on a terrifying rise in the U.S. On the whole, the month of August has consistently been the most dangerous month of the year to drive.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Aug. 2 and Aug. 27 have been two of the most dangerous days in the month of August to drive. Given the startling statistics regarding the month of August and the road rage epidemic, more efforts to bring awareness to these two realities are needed.
