why are there so many angry drivers around

Joanne from Pakuranga Heights

my daughter has been driving locally and been at the end of someones
anger twice this weekend
1 incident was coming off the SE motorway, doing 5 kms over the limit
when a car (I wont say what) was tailgating her so close she actuallky
lost sight of it in her mirror,then all of a sudden the car appeared
beside her, finger out the window, hurling the F word, calling her a white
bitch, this car stayed even with her for several minutes yelling and
swearing, sadly we had to stop at the lights next to him tirade continued
obviously going 5 km over the speed limit is not fast enough for him
this has all been videoed from a dash cam and a phone/
yesterday in Cahtrsworth, there were a lot of parked cars on both sides
making the road almost one way, she started to drive in between cthe cars on each side when a large black car (again I wont say what type)
sped through hurling abuse and using the finger again, she was lucky
she could pull over in someones driveway to let it through.all it had to do
was wait a couple of seconds, as she works shift work she is quite
scared of driving now,
what is wrong with people these days, there is more traffic than we used
to have, but we all need patience so many angry people out there angry
over nothing
