The paper then discusses the growing epidemic of road rage in the United States and the effects that it has on individuals and driver safety in general.

From the Paper:

"Road rage can take place anywhere you drive a motor vehicle. Parking lots, a drive-thru, such as at a bank or fast food restaurant, a red light, a highway during construction and just about any place you drive. Sometimes Road Rage is extended out of our cars and into the supermarkets, banks, local or department stores or just on the walk back to our cars. It's like a virus that is spreading like wild fire. ("Mad Driver's Disease: A survival guide for handling highway nuts, from a recovering lunatic")"
