43% of Us Slow Down to “Rubberneck” When We See a Crash

This is why every little fender-bender causes a traffic jam . . .

If you’re driving and there’s a wreck on the side of the road, do you ever slow down to get a better look?  Yeah, a lot of us do.

“Rubbernecking” is the name people use for it.  And a poll found over 40% of us are likely to do it when we see a crash.

43% said it’s something they do “often” or “very often.”  Everyone else either said they do it occasionally, or they don’t drive.

One more stat:  The same poll asked about road rage.  19% of Americans . . . or around 1 in 5 . . . said driving angry is a regular thing for them.
