A recent RAC survey on Road Rage found more than half of all drivers have been sworn at, more than two thirds have received abusive hand signals and a small but significant number have been attacked, punched or rammed by another car.
The Honda RoadRage Personal Attack System is a new security device for all drivers, but is aimed primarily at women drivers, the elderly and other vulnerable individuals who frequently drive solo and/or who may be carrying valuables or goods. Supplied as a Genuine Honda Accessory, it offers a first line of defence against any road rage attack, both frightening off a potential attacker and alerting bystanders to an incident.
The warning system is activated by pressing a Panic Button mounted in a concealed position, within easy reach of the driver. Once pressed, this button activates a 120 dB siren and causes the hazard lights to flash. The siren is periodically interrupted with a loud voice message sounding: "Help, driver under attack, call the Police."
The siren, hazard lights and voice message continue until de-activated by the driver. The digitally recorded voice message is programmable as either a male or female voice option.
