Doctor in the House: Why Does Road Rage Happen?

Dr George Lee returns to discuss the latest medical news. Expect deep insights delivered with generous humour. Research in Malaysia has found that not only are there millions of angry drivers on our roads, we also fare worse than countries like the United States, Australia, Spain and Turkey. The main causes of road rage are problems that we’re all familiar with, including refusing to give way, failing to use indicators and double- or triple-parking. So is our rude driving behaviour the cause of road rage among Malaysian drivers, or are there deeper psychosocial issues at the heart of it? And what can we do – at an individual and at the systemic level – to deal with road rage?
