Research Reveals Most Common Cars and Car Colors for Road Rage
We hate to break the news to you, but if you drive a blue BMW chances are you’re a menace to society.
Okay, that may be a little harsh, but a new study has found that people who drive a BMW or drive a blue car are the worst when it comes to road rage. And, yes, it’s a British study, so it may not apply to all of us stateside where we are most certainly patient and courteous to everyone while we obediently follow the rules of the road, right? Right?
The research also found that Friday at 5:45 p.m. is the most common time for drivers to experience road rage – typically a time when motorists are headed home to begin a weekend of relaxation. The most likely drivers to pop a vein cursing someone out or cutting someone off are men between the ages of 35 and 50.
This study comes on the heels of previous research which found that BMW drivers are less likely than others to stop for pedestrians in a crosswalk. So, basically, driving a BMW means you have taken selfish to a whole new level.
