Miami Tops Auto Club List for Rude Drivers

I know this will come as a surprise to absolutely nobody who has ever been to Miami, but we’re now famous for drivers worse than New York and Boston. Worse? That doesn’t even seem possible.

Excerpted from BETH RUCKER of Associated Press on May 16, 2006 3:53 PM EDT:

Stressed Miami drivers speed, tailgate and cut off other drivers so frequently that the city earned the title of worst road rage in a survey released Tuesday. Also listed were Phoenix, New York, Los Angeles, and Boston among the top five cities for rude driving.

Minneapolis, Nashville, St. Louis, Seattle, and Atlanta were rated as the cities with the most courteous drivers, who were less likely to change lanes without signaling or swear at other motorists. No distinct differences were found between male and female drivers. So, I will not even bother to draw a conclusion from this. These truths are self-evident.
