Road Rage in Houston: Law enforcement, experts taking multiple avenues for solutions
HOUSTON – At a news conference on road rage earlier this month at Houston City Hall, Mayor Sylvester Turner couldn’t contain his rage anymore regarding the violence impacting Houston area roads and the victims – young and old – caught up in the crossfire.
“And hell, if you’re not mad, you ought to be mad,” said Turner.
For well over a year, cases have been popping up across the Houston area. The harsh reality is that once you enter a freeway, the violence can roll up in seconds.
University of Wisconsin-Green Bay Professor Ryan Martin said capturing the attention of drivers while behind the wheel is key,.
“I think the best sorts of initiatives are the ones that are going to remind you in the moment,” said Martin.
Essentially, these are positive triggers in any form.
