In fact, a recent newspaper report cited the community of Bexar County, home of San Antonio, as the leader in road rage incidents in Texas.
From 2007 to 2011, police throughout Texas cited road rage as a contributing factor in more than 4,400 crashes that injured more than 1,950 people and killed 32. Road rage crashes have decreased in the state in the last four years, as accidents peaked in 2008 with almost 970 wrecks. There were 804 road rage crashes last year.
From 2007 to 2011, police officers and sheriff’s deputies in Bexar County cited road rage as a contributing factor in 680 wrecks that injured 280 people, the San Antonio Express-News reported (http://bit.ly/MaFcjw) Sunday.
Bexar County is the 19th most populated county in the United States, so it’s not a small community, but that is still not an answer as to why they are seeing more road rage cases there than in larger cities like Dallas, Fort Worth or Houston.
