Road rage is an aggressive behavior displayed by a driver of a vehicle to other drivers or pedestrians on road. It may include offensive or foul language, intimidation, abusing, verbal insults, physical threats and also display of arms in some cases. Such behavior may lead to violent confrontation or a fatal accident apart from causing mental trauma to the victim and his family. Even an aggressive and irresponsible driving by a driver is a part of road rage. Statics attribute 63% of the total road fatalities arising out of road rage incidents and nearly 37% incidents involve fire arms. There is an alarming trend of youths under 20 being involved in the incidents of road rage.
The responsibility of maintaining law and order and road safety regulations lies with the concerned authority but road rage is also a problem arising out of changing social structure of society. The increasing stress level and a lack of communication often turns a person aggressive and violent which he displays on the road by insulting and harming other drivers or pedestrians. Steps like psychological counseling of students or employees in stress as well as a moral support to our kids in depression will considerably bring down the incident of road rage.

Road Rage Speech 1
A Very Good Morning Ladies and Gentlemen!
Today, this sudden assembly of the whole area has been organized for a very crucial reason and that is the road rage. Yes! It has been a very concerned topic since years and as per the accident that happened yesterday outside of the school area, we have to take some actions to prevent such occurrences. The cases related to the road rage are increasing day by day. Many people in the country have lost their lives due to this. We have to understand the reasons behind the road rage.
The main cause of the road rage is growing stress in the lives of people. Road rage is actually an aggressive behaviour by the driver of a vehicle that is uncontrollable, especially when it is due to stress or frustration. The increasing pressure of work upon people in today’s world is the main cause of the road rage. They think that following the traffic rules and driving rules is just mere a waste of time but they don’t understand that these rules are made for their own safety. If they do not follow those rules then it will be a cause of danger for their own lives and as well as for the others. People are getting more stressed and frustrated day by day and therefore they disobey the traffic rules.
According to today’s lifestyle, people are losing their control over their aggression and thus they get aggressive upon each other even on roads and this behavior is termed as road rage. The other biggest reason for the happening of the road accidents is mistake and it causes thousands of road accidents each year. Road rage can involve anybody irrespective of their gender, castes, race or age.
The most aggressive and cruel road rage incidents generally involve ignoble words and rude gestures by the drivers towards each other. Many times or often, weapons are also found involved in road rage incidents. Those involved are armed with guns, knife or other kind of violent weapons.
The cases of road rage are increasing everyday and it is needed to be controlled. The government needs to ensure strict implementation of traffic rules and guidelines. But, it is not only the responsibility of the government but citizens too. We have to understand that the traffic rules in place are for our own safety and we must adhere to them while on road.
On this note, I would like to thank all the citizens gathered here for cooperating with us and taking this issue under consideration. I hope this assembly will help us in controlling road rage as of now we all are aware of its causes and consequences.
Thank you and I wish you all a great day ahead!
Road Rage Speech 2
A Very Good Morning Respected Principal Ma’am, Respected Teachers and My Dear Friends!
Today, we all are gathered here to talk about one of the most important and crucial reasons and that is the road rage. I am Mrs. Vanika Kathuria and I am your teacher of political science. I have been asked to arrange this assembly of all of us so that this problem could be controlled. As most of the students these days are seen driving rashly outside the school in the morning and as well as at the time of departure. It can be very dangerous for the other people and as well as for themselves too. Many students are seen driving rashly in front of their teachers as well.
First of all, we must be aware of the reasons behind the happening of the road rage. We could also call it as rash driving. Although, there are many reasons behind the cause of road rage such as stress, aggressive behavior etc. Most of the students who come by their own vehicles are mostly bikers and have a high tendency of causing accidents by their way of driving. There have been many cases in the past where the bikers are caught in an accident injuring others and as well as themselves. They drive rashly all over the area and cause accidents to other people as well as to themselves.
There have been many complaints registered against the students who drive rashly without following the traffic rules. Mostly teenagers are involved in these rash driving incidents. After checking, you will be shocked about what we came out with, most of the students were driving their vehicles without having driving licenses and most of all, the language they use is very abusive which intimidates others.
Although, this problem is not only reserved to the institutional areas but the every place in the country is facing this problem. This problem could be solved at two levels, on the level of government and on the level of public. Government should increase the strictness and rigidness in the implementation of traffic rules. Instant and as well as strict actions should be followed against the defaulter of the traffic rules. There should be no exceptions for the defaulter so that they cannot run away from the charges taken against them. But, the government alone cannot solve this problem without the cooperation of the people. People should also understand the reasons behind the setup of traffic rules. They are made for their safety and everyone should follow it and as well as respect it. Parents should avoid giving their kids bikes and cars in the young age especially to those who are not even adults or haven’t completed 18 years of their age.
I would like to wrap up my words on this note and thank our respected principal ma’am and teachers for thinking about the welfare of the students and as well as for the society. I would also like to thank all the students for co-operating with the school and being part of the discussion patiently.
Thank you and I wish you all may have a great day ahead!
Road Rage Speech 3
A Very Good Morning Ladies and Gentlemen!
We are very glad to have you people here today as this gathering is especially organized for a social cause, and seeing so many people taking interest in it feels good itself. This event is especially organized with keeping in mind about the increasing rash driving cases. It has become very important to raise awareness about the road safety rules, and traffic rules among the people. I am feeling very proud to be a part of such an amazing event, and it is a pleasure of mine to host this program. Today, we have some people with us who had witnessed accidents caused by rash driving, and negligence of themselves or of the other. But before heading towards listening to the experiences and beginning with the event, I would like to say a few lines about road rage.
The main reason behind rash driving is aggression. People get hyper very easily these days, and thus they drive aggressively on roads making it unsafe for others. There could be many reasons behind their aggression such as work stress, frustration etc but it cannot be justified that they show that aggression on their vehicles because it doesn’t only make it unsafe for themselves but for the others as well. Most of the people among us usually avoid safety precautions in hurry while driving, and forgets the fact that these safety rules are meant to be followed because it is for your own safety. People also skip the red lights, and speed limitation just for the sake of saving their time, and forget that these rules are meant to prevent any harm to them. Rash driving is increasing on a day to day note and leads to the rise of violent confrontations, severe accidents, and sometimes loss of life. This has become a serious problem these days, and causing a threat to many lives. Mostly youngsters are involved in these accidents of road rage. They neglect the road safety rules such as wearing helmet, seat belt etc. These little oversights could lead to severe accidents, and danger to many lives. Rash driving includes over speeding of the vehicles or improper movement so that to put safety of others in danger and hurling verbal abuses or intimidating other drivers or pedestrians. Speed limit is a very important part of traffic rules, and therefore not following any of the traffic rules means rash driving.
Parents of youngsters could help in bringing a major change in today’s situation by making sure that their child is following traffic rules or at least safety rules, and the other adults should think smartly that these rules and signs are made to save their own lives from danger but not only to decorate the roads.
On this note, I would like to wrap up my words, and thank our organizers for organizing such a great social event. This event could not get the success without people’s support, and I would like to thank all of you on behalf of our team. I hope this event will help in changing the situation of the roads, and increase the awareness among the citizens.
Thanks a lot, and I wish you all a great day ahead!
Road Rage Speech 4
A Very Good Morning Respected Principal, Respected Teachers and My Dear Friends!
Today, we all are assembled here for a very frightening reason as one of our college mates has been hospitalized due to an accident. He was hit by a car on the road while heading back to his home after college. The accident was only caused due to his carelessness regarding road safety rules and as well as traffic rules. He was on a bike without wearing helmet and riding it on a high speed. Due to his carelessness, the car and bike both got heavily damaged but fortunately, the car driver has not got any injuries upon himself.
These kinds of accidents are pretty normal these days but we should accept the fact that the injuries caused by these accidents cannot be called as normal. The biker in that accident got heavy head injuries along with a leg fracture and this is not at all normal. We should understand that rash driving is a crime because when you over speed your vehicle above the limitation of the traffic rules, you put your life and as well as other people’s lives in danger. Breaking rules that are only made for the purpose of our safety is terrific. The cases of road rage or we can also call it as rash driving is growing on a day to day note and leading towards the infringement of the safety of other people who are using the same roads.
We all know the need of vehicles in our life especially when you live in country with a big number of population of humans. Public transport facilities are not always convenient or appropriate to go from and that is because private vehicles are used but they are not used appropriately by the people since years. People drive the wheels off the speed limits and many of them even drive without taking safety precautions like seat-belt for cars and helmets for two wheelers etc ignoring the fact that they are kept for their own safety of life.
To control the amount of increasing accidents caused due to the rash driving and ignorant behavior of people towards safety rules, the traffic police should get strict and some high penalty should enforced on the people who break the rules of safety on roads. This problem cannot be solved only at the level of government, but the people should also understand their duty towards the following of the rules and regulations for the traffic that are made for saving the lives of people from danger. Once the people will understand the importance of safety rules, the rash driving accidents will automatically decrease.
On this note, I would like to wrap my words up and extend special thanks to our respected principal who is very concerned for the safety of her students and organized this assembly. I would also like to appreciate my college mates for listening and understanding the scenario very patiently.
Thank you and I wish you all a great day ahead!
