A Purposive sample of 279 participants was taken from University of the Punjab, Lahore which included 179 students, 50 teachers and 50 employees. The mean age of the sample was 27 years. Measures used in the study included Driving Anger Scale, new self-report measure of Impulsivity and Frustration Tolerance Scale of Symptom Checklist-R. After taking consent from the participants’ data was collected.
