With some recent high-profile cases of aggression, here is advice for keeping safe.

Road safety and breakdown recovery specialist GEM Motoring Assist is encouraging drivers to protect themselves by being alert to early signs of road rage. 

The warning from the organisation follows the release of a disturbing dashcam video appearing to show an angry driver in the West Midlands shunting a fellow motorist and causing a high-speed crash.

GEM’s road safety officer Neil Worth commented: ‘Most of us will have some experience of being on the receiving end of someone else’s aggression. Thankfully, violent and unprovoked attacks are rare, but it pays to be observant and if possible to recognise signs of trouble at their earliest stages.’
