Road Rage

Front Cover
LFB Scholarly Pub., 2006 - Psychology - 239 pages
Garase examines aggressive driving and road rage among college students. Her approach is based in Agnew's General Strain Theory (GST) (1992). She uses GST theory to include the three sources of strain, situational and trait anger, and coping mechanisms (peer relationships and self-control). Strain has a direct, positive, significant relationship with road rage, and also an indirect effect through the coping mechanism of peer behavior. Garase concludes that strain as well as trait anger play significant roles in determining who is likely to participate in acts of aggressive driving and road rage.
