New York has the most dis-courteous and aggressive drivers in the country according to the recently-released AutoVantage Road Rage Survey. Voters in 25 major U.S. major cities gave New Yorkers the dubious distinction of being the most hot-tempered and aggressive. Factors counted in the study included New York’s propensity to tailgate, speed, beep their horns, cut others off, run red lights, use obscene gestures and lose their tempers.

Behind New York were Dallas/Fort Worth, Detroit, Atlanta and Minneapolis/St. Paul. Miami had been ranked the worst such city for the last 3 years but this year is ranked seventh. Portland, Cleveland, Baltimore, Sacramento and Pittsburgh were voted as having the most polite and courteous drivers.

Motorists objected to others using a cell phone, with 84 percent citing it as the activity most likely to induce road rage. Speeding, following too closing, eating drinking and texting were also substantial reasons resulting in road rage episodes.
