Description: Funded by the Washington Traffic Safety Commission, this project will study the timely issue of "Road Rage" or aggressive driving. Researchers will analyze the Aggressive Drivers Apprehension Team (ADAT) database of aggressive driving arrests and compare it with both state-wide and regional databases of the general driving population. This will allow them to compile a profile of aggressive drivers and to propose a set of interventions aimed at reducing aggressive driving. Such interventions could potentially be implemented by the State's court system or Department of Licensing.
