Abstract and Figures
Road anger constitutes one of the determinant factors related to safety outcomes (e.g. accidents, near misses). Although cyclists are considered vulnerable road users due to their relatively high rate of fatalities in traffic, previous research has solely focused on car drivers, and no study has yet investigated the effect of anger on cyclists’ safety outcomes. The present research aims to investigate, for the first time, the effects of cycling anger toward different types of road users on near misses involving such road users and near misses in general.

Anger towards specific road users had different effects on th
