Find out whether you’ll receive a pay out if you’re the victim of a road rage attack
Road rage insurance can cover you if you’re the victim of violence on the road. For example, someone losing their temper or carjacking.
It pays out a set amount if you, or possibly others travelling in your car, are killed or injured in a road rage attack.
It’s rare to find it as part of your car insurance policy. We checked Defaqto and only 16% of 345 comprehensive car insurance policies include road rage cover as standard. Another 4% allow you to add it as an optional extra. 
Road rage-inflicted injuries are more often covered by personal injury cover, if you have it.
It’s unlikely you’ll be covered for road rage with a third party, fire and theft policy - a tiny 2% of 195 policies include road rage cover as standard. 
But with over a fifth of UK drivers admitting they’ve got out of their car to express anger at another motorist, it’s cover worth having.
According to HPI
Road rage situations can escalate quickly and it’s safer to not retaliate. Pull over if you need to take a moment
If someone is driving closely behind you, pull over and let them pass rather than racing against them or feeling pressurised into driving faster
Fitting a dashcam in your car will make sure that if you’re involved in any accidents or altercations you have evidence to show your insurer or the police
If you need to be at an appointment, leave early so you’re not rushed and stressed out on the way
Try to be understanding of other people on the road too - they could be a new driver making a simple mistake
