Once again, Miami tops ‘road rage’ list

Once again, Miami has the worst road-rage of any city in the USA. As a driver here, I can tell you … wait? how dare you cut me off? I’ll kill you, you son-of-a bitch … where was I? Oh, yeah, we have the most insane, impossible drivers. Anyone who lives here and has to drive knows how bad it is.

Much of the trouble comes from the fact that many things drivers in other cities take as gospel (traffic lights, traffic signs, road markings such as stripes, and laws) drivers here consider as mere suggestions that only apply to other drivers. Further, we have a multi-cultural, diverse city where everybody who drives follows the rules of their homeland and not our rules. We have vehicles that are not suitable to be on the road, and many other hazards that are just too amazing to list. All of this is done while the driver is on the phone and reading the newspaper while simultaneously either driving 90MPH in the right lane or 30MPH in the left lane. And God forbid someone should try and merge.

From CNN: For the second consecutive year, rude Miami drivers have earned the city the title of worst road rage in a survey released today. Miami motorists said they saw other drivers slam on their brakes, run red lights, and talk on cell phones, according to AutoVantage. Other cities near the top of the rude drivers list were New York, Boston, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C.
