Road rage getting worse across the country, statistics show

If you've ever driven a day in your life in Houston, you know how frustrating it can be.

Now, national statistics show not just in Houston, but around the country it's getting worse when it comes to road rage.

It was back in July where a road rage incident led to a person firing a gun into a car that ignited fireworks. It left two young children and their parents injured.

Research by the AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety found 80 percent of Americans admit to being aggressive when driving.

The National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration reports between 2008 and 2017 the number of fatal crashes a year involving aggressive driving climbed from 105 to 432.
