Road rage is a form of raging abusive behaviour displayed by drivers to exert power. The power exerted can be in any manner such as using harsh slangs, threatening physically, attempting to start a physical fight in the middle of the road, and continuously honking. All this to mark control and show power over other people walking on the road, cycling or people crossing the road. This sort of rage has created many problems and doesn’t seem to slow down any time soon. In this article, we will look into what to be included in a Speech On Road Rage. It can be presented in different ways, a Long Speech On Road Rage or a Short Speech On Road Rage.

Long and Short Speech on Road Rage

Long Speech on Road Rage

This format is useful for students in grades 8-12 who are just a few years from driving on their own, it can be an informative one.

Good Morning everyone respected Principal, Teachers and my dear friends, I am here today to speak on an important topic that highlights how not to be that is road rage. Road rage is the display of anger or rage while on the road and creating a ruckus and inconvenience for everyone around. In India, unlike many other countries honking is a normal way to converse with the people in the driver’s seat of other cars. But when this turns into a prolonged horn it turns into a harassing experience. 

This is often seen when a person drives frustrated and exhausted. And sometimes this sort of behaviour is displayed when they are unhappy with the way the other is driving. This dissatisfaction becomes an outburst when they feel someone is getting in their way. 

The manifestations of this unhappiness and dissatisfaction often come through in raging behaviour. The additional traffic makes it much worse, and the display is perceived as road rage. Rage can be shown by abusing others, using foul language, honking continuously unnecessarily, throwing objects, verbal threats and basically insulting the other. 

These kinds of drivers not only are prone to harmful consequences but are also likely to cause them harm and induce suffering to the other and do something regrettable. They tend to take the parking spots, driving rashly and causing accidents that often lead to death. 

This kind of rude behaviour by such drivers is not just while driving but seen in other areas of their lives as well. The most susceptible people who are on the receiving end more often are the training instructors. They experience this outrage during training sessions and practice sessions with these drivers as well.

In India, there are other situations and reasons where one tends to be aggressive. Bad conditions of roads create frustration when one is stuck in hours of traffic and it is raining. Or running for a meeting, attempting to block other cars, speeding in heavy traffic, cutting in and then slowing down in front of other drivers, mismanagement of traffic, and increased noise levels due to honking. 

We are the next generation and we should be aware of such behaviour and learn how to be responsible for our own actions. This kind of behaviour can be reduced and stopped when there are better traffic rules. A proper management system engaging in creating rules and regulations convenient for everyone to abide by. There should be legal ramifications of engaging in such behaviour and a charge should be placed.

Road rage is an extreme example of aggressive behaviour by a driver. Let’s not engage in such behaviour when we drive and add more to the problem. We should learn to be better drivers and steer clear of such problems and do our bit in reducing the number of such problems in our country.

Thank you.

Short Speech on Road Rage

This format of speech on road rage is useful for students in grades 4-7 and have a deeper understanding of the topic in simple words.

Good Morning everyone, respected principal, teachers and my dear friends, today we are going to learn about road rage. Safety on roads is a high time threat due to road rage that has only increased in recent decades. The reason being more and more people are able to afford a vehicle and getting behind the wheel. 

This caused due to many reasons like prolonged hours of waiting in line to get a parking spot, bad traffic, bad weather conditions, bad management, untrained drivers and especially in cities where everyone is running late for something or the other, people get frustrated and behave angrily.

Road rage behaviour involves abusing and fighting verbally and sometimes physically, lane cutting, tailgating. And intentionally damaging others property and forcibly showing power over the bypassers.  

A 2015 study has shown that 54% of young people between the ages of 15-34 die in a road accident. And the cases reported have only been increasing. And road rage doesn’t help in reducing these cases rather enables further. 

One can attempt to find a solution to this problem by fostering more training programs. Having better road safety norms and traffic rules considering the unique road conditions in India could help to curb this issue. There should also be more parking space allotted. The drivers should be aware of all the rules and regulations and the proper way to behave in case one encounters such raging behaviour. This can reduce the number of road accidents caused due to road rage.

Thank You!
