    How come there is so much anger on the freeway?

    It is hard to be happy and have a good day when you are angry.

    I think people see all the other cars as a personal affront to their freedom of mobility. I don't think they really consider the people inside the vehicles, rather get upset at all these metal things on wheels that get in the way or try to ram them.

    Because each person believes they're important and they need to get somewhere much worse than those around them, so that extra 30-second delay or that one car that's going 2mph slower than the rest of the traffic is a REALLY BIG deal. I agree, it is hard to have a good day that way, and bad for the blood pressure.

    I really do not know....But this is very true: when a man sits in the car becomes aggressive and change his priorities .... perhaps it is because become like an archaic man of the jungle that to survive he  must be strong and fast .....????

    Because they are angry about other things in their life, something else is very wrong, whether it be about money, love, happiness -- I think it comes out while driving, when they're frustrated with something on the road they can act like an ass, say horrible things, and it's mostly to the air and to anonymous people.  Things they can't say, behavior they can't display, directly to the people in their life.

    haha I don't know, but I do know that some of it is completely not real because one of my friends "gets mad" at other cars all the time just to see their reaction. As bad as it is, it's really funny sometimes.
