Nearly half of drivers have experienced road rage, with some being threatened with physical violence, according to a new survey.

As many as 32% say they are subject to road rage more than once a week, the survey of 3,120 drivers by insurance company Admiral found.

Of those road rage sufferers, 21% have had full-blown arguments with another motorist, while 36% said experiencing road rage made them drive more aggressively.

Around 8% had followed another driver who had been rude or aggressive towards them, while 9% of all those surveyed said they had been threatened with physical violence in a road rage incident.
