Utah has the highest rate of confrontational drivers in the nation, according to a 2022 Forbes Advisor report. In response, state lawmakers are considering changes to state law to increase the penalties for reckless driving or add a new penalty for road rage. The Utah Department of Public Safety has reported that the number of road rage-related crashes has remained steady in the past six years, but the number of serious injuries and fatalities in such crashes has seen a noticeable uptick recently. Lawmakers are also discussing a potential awareness campaign to remind drivers about the dangers of losing their tempers on the road. Any legislation wouldn’t be approved until the general legislative session next January.
