     Road rage is hardly an acceptable response to the travails of driving. It signals inadequate impulse control, perhaps even sociopathy. People can end up hurt, incarcerated, or worse. But how about road woe? Because it’s probably one reaction or the other: If the Bay Area’s freeways don’t make you rage, they’ll at least make you weep. And since a recent Metropolitan Transportation Commission report found that “congested delay”—traffic moving at 35 mph or less—has increased 70 percent in the Bay Area since 2010, it’s an understanding reaction.
