When and Where Does Road Rage Most Often Strike?

by Dan Rafter,, October 19, 2017

Want to avoid angry drivers on your local highways? Then drive less in August — and on Fridays.

Motorists tend to be most annoyed — and most likely to suffer from road rage — while navigating the nation’s roads during the month of August and on Fridays, at least according to Instagram posts.

A study of Instagram posts with the #RoadRage found motorists tended to post most often about driving frustrations on Fridays and in August. This doesn’t necessarily mean that there are more road rage-fueled accidents or incidents during these times. But, this does show that motorists are frustrated enough with traffic to post more often about it on Instagram.

More than 65,535 Instagram posts from June of 2013 through April of 2016 were hashtagged #RoadRage. The goal? To find out where and when U.S. motorists are feeling the most aggravated.
