LOS ANGELES – About 59 percent of workers surveyed by CareerBuilder.com admit to experiencing road rage while traveling to and from work, according to the Web site www.nbc4.tv. One in 10 of those commuters who were surveyed said they usually or always experience road rage during their commute. The survey, completed in June 2006, included more than 2,200 workers nationwide.

Nearly 85 percent of workers said their primary means of traveling to and from work is driving. Incidents of road rage climbed with the length of the commute, according to CareerBuilder. However, 30 percent of workers with commutes of less than five minutes still say they experience road rage on occasion. The same goes for 42 percent of workers with commutes of less than 10 minutes.

The survey results showed that women were slightly more apt to feel road rage than men: 60 percent of women reported road rage compared to 57 percent of men.

CareerBuilder conducted the office commute survey from June 6-16, 2006. More than 2,200 workers were used in the study. The company said results of this survey are statistically accurate to within plus or minus 2.08 percentage points (19 times out of 20).
