A Tale of Road Rage and Pepper Spray Protection

by pepp2275 on June 6, 2012

Road Rage is not limited to only highway driving. Parking lots can be a hotbed of road rage activity. Have you ever had a problem in a parking lot over who has dibs on a parking space first? Yea, especially when the driver in question wants to cut in from the wrong direction. First off, some background on road rage studies.

A recent Gallup poll reported that motorists were more worried about road rage (42%) than about drunk driving (35%). –NY Times. The problem is national in scope, not just a phenomenon of congested urban areas. Key triggers of road rage appear to be the result of feeling rushed, speeding, or being in traffic. Aggressive driving behaviors include tailgating, changing lanes without using a signal, talking on cell phones while driving , running red lights, honking the horn and using angry or obscene gestures at other drivers.

Road Rage and Pepper Spray Protection

Aggressive driving is thought to be a major factor in 50% of auto crashes.

Aggressive driving according to the AAA estimates a compound growth rate of 7%. Road rage has been showing steady growth since the cited studies above, so it’s even more important today to be prepared to protect yourself while driving your car both on the road and in a parking lot.

Being safe in your car can be as simple as keeping a cool head and setting a good example, however, for one of my pepper spray customers this wasn’t enough to make the aggressive driver go away. Competition for parking spaces when time is short can trigger aggressive behavior in several forms. When a driver that is experiencing road rage leaves his vehicle to run over and give you a piece of their mind, or worse, wants to get physical; you need to be prepared. You could be boxed into a space where you can’t leave the area, and yes you may have your cell phone, but how soon will help arrive? A recent incident that was reported to me was just such an event. The road raged driver pounded on the victim’s car while yelling obscenities and gesturing for the driver to come out of their car to fight.

The intended victim of the road raged attacker managed to lower his window down enough so that the angered driver would come closer to the opened window, and that is when the pepper spray was discharged though the car window and into the facial area of the attacker. The attacker immediately started cursing less and began coughing more while the pepper spray worked inflaming the mucus tissues in the eyes and throat of the attacking driver. The potential victim of someone’s road rage was now able to pull safely around the attacker and leave the area. This was a good example of pepper spray protection to the rescue. Personally, I don’t leave home without pepper spray in my car…you might consider it too.
