LETTER:Oedipal rage

From Mr George MacDonald Ross

Sir: The earliest recorded example of road rage ("Half all drivers are targets of road rage", 24 January) was surely when Oedipus killed his father in an argument over who had priority to drive his chariot over a narrow bridge. Perhaps ancient Greek priority signs were as confusing as ours!

Yours faithfully,

George MacDonald Ross
