Miami and D.C. people top the 'rude drivers' list

For the second year in a row, rude drivers who chat on cell phones and speed through red lights have earned Miami the title as the U.S. city with the most road rage, a survey released Tuesday said.

Miami motorists said they saw other drivers slam on their brakes, run red lights, multitask while driving and talk on cell phones, according to the survey by AutoVantage, a Connecticut-based automobile membership club that offers travel services and roadside assistance. Other cities that topped the list for rude drivers were New York, Boston, Los Angeles and Washington, D.C.

The most courteous drivers can be found in Portland, Ore., Pittsburgh, the Seattle-Tacoma area, St. Louis and Dallas-Fort Worth. Portland drivers were the least likely to see other motorists tailgating on the roadways and St. Louis motorists were the least likely to swear at another driver. Full article here.
