British drivers are the worst for road rage according to a recent survey. The survey asked over 3,000 drivers from 20 countries about road rage and driver aggression.  British drivers seem much angrier than continental drivers - with more than three quarters of British drivers experiencing driver aggression compared with less than half of Germans.

Yahoo cars had more on the story:

“76% of British motorists had been subjected to aggressive gestures while driving, compared with 73% in France, and only 43% in Germany.

Also, 73% of Britons had found themselves blocked in while driving compared with only 42% of French drivers.

The survey, which covered several European countries as well as India, also showed that 53% of Britons had experienced verbal aggression at the wheel, compared with only 47% in Germany and 44% in France.

Of the 20 countries surveyed, Turkey had the most polite drivers, with only 23% experiencing aggressive gestures. In Portugal the figure was 24%.

Just 15% of Turkish drivers and 17% of Dutch motorists had experienced verbal aggression, while only 13% of drivers in Turkey and just 15% in Norway had been blocked in by other drivers."

This is not good news for the British driving public maybe there's a link between road rage and the fact that many drivers feel they would not pass the driving test now.
