Abstract: A cross-sectional survey with convenience sampling was conducted among rickshaw drivers in Rawalpindi, Pakistan to study their road rage behaviour and experiences. Cumulatively 318 male drivers participated in this study. The most common forms of road rage reported were: having been shouted at; and having experienced rude gestures from other drivers [78.9% each]. Least common forms of road rage reported were: threats of physical hurt or having actually been physically hurt [</= 3% each]. Rickshaw drivers with shorter driving time [</=10 years] had significantly more road rage experiences than those who had been driving for more than 10 years [P < 0.01]. There is a need for nationally representative surveys to study road age in commercial vehicle drivers so as to improve road safety in Pakistan
