The present study aimed at investigating the influence of anger on aggressive driving using a racing game. Participants were 16 young people and 15 middle-aged people, who played car in the racing game and answered questionnaires on usual driving and games. Their aggressive behavior and physiological indices during their play were measured. Results of multiple regression analysis suggested that multiple physiological indices of arousal level and subjective frustration were linked to aggressive behavior among young people, whereas the association was not found among middle-aged people.
