ISP: Road Rage Incidents Increasing In Indiana

Last updated on Monday, March 3, 2008

(UNDATED) - Indiana State Police are warning Hoosiers about road rage, both being a victim and a perpetrator.

The warning is coming from an incident on Interstate 465 in Indianapolis where an Indy woman who was a passenger was shot in an apparent road rage incident by an unknown suspect.

As a result, state police are advising against tailgating, challenging other drivers by speeding up to hold your spot in traffic, avoiding eye contact with aggressive drivers, and both ignoring and not returning offensive hand gestures.

They also advise against using your cell phone and other distracters while driving, and, if you do find yourself getting frustrated, turn on the radio or find another way to calm yourself down.

The Indiana State Police are reporting an increase in reported road rage incidents, and are doing what they can to combat the problem.
