One minute you are minding your own business driving home from work, and the next moment your heart is racing as another driver has taken offense and is chasing you down, trying to run you off the road. This situation shows that road rage can happen when you least expect it in Pennsylvania and elsewhere. Road rage's cousin, aggressive driving, is also common and may threaten your safety.
You may have heard about an incident last February, in which two men were killed in gunfire at a gas station in Allentown. Witnesses claimed the confrontation escalated after one of the men's vehicle bumped another one and reportedly left the scene, before they caught up with each other at the gas station. This case of road rage is extreme, yet shows how tempers can flare out of control and people can use weapons against each other during a confrontation in traffic.
