There is no doubt that driving a motor vehicle can sometimes be a frustrating experience, especially in a large city such as Philadelphia. People are often in a hurry and can get angry at traffic jams, slow drivers, and other obstacles that prevent them from reaching their destination quickly enough.

Though some of these behaviors may seem extreme, approximately 1200 cases of road rage are reported each year, with over 300 cases resulting in serious injuries or even death.
