China is the world's largest vehicle market, and possibly one of the world's most dangerous, if the latest figures are any indication.
Even before 2015 is out, Chinese traffic police have handled more than 17 million cases of road rage, a 2.8 percent increase from a year ago.
The statistics were released by the country's Ministry of Public Security on Wednesday, which was also China's National Traffic Safety Day.
Men account for 97 percent of road rage cases in the country with a population of 1.4 billion, said the ministry.
Videos of dangerous driving proliferate on Chinese social media, with arbitrary lane changes and risky overtaking rife.
Clips of road rage are also not uncommon.
