Redmist

Redmist

Our June 2012 survey of over 3,950 UK motorists found that more than two third had been a victim of road rage in the past 12 months. We know 'road rage' isn't new, but it does appear to be a growing problem.

In response to our survey results – which you can find in the infographic below – we created our #RedMist campaign. The idea is to help raise awareness about road rage, and offer information, stats and tips on how to deal with it should the 'red mist' descend.
