More than half of Britain's motorists have been on the receiving end of road rage incidents according to a new survey, with nearly half of those surveyed admitting to suffering from road rage themselves.
Overall 44 per cent of motorists consider their day-to-day stress levels behind the wheel to be quite high or extremely high.

41 per cent of the respondents admitted that they frequently swore at other drivers whilst behind the wheel and 25 per cent admitted they deliberately sped up or slowed down to take revenge on another driver.
Four per cent of the respondents confessed that a bout of road rage led them to deliberately follow a motorist they were annoyed with.
Two per cent had been reduced to tears and one per cent have got out of their car to fight.
The poll of over 2,000 drivers by Motors.co.uk suggests that drivers in Scotland and Wales are the most stressed in the UK. 8am is the worst time of the day for stress on the UK's roads.
This poll is similar to one published at the start of last year by Carrentals.co.uk, which saw one in three British drivers claim to be a victim of road rage out of 2,000 respondents.
