HR Strange But True!
May 19, 2006

Commuters in Miami, Phoenix, and New York have the most road rage, according to a survey by AutoVantage, an auto club.

The survey, which included more than 2,000 interviews, looked at the driving habits in 20 cities, finding that the cities with the least courteous drivers--and the most road rage--are Miami, Phoenix, New York, Los Angeles, and Boston.

The cities with the most courteous drivers are Minneapolis, Nashville, St. Louis, Seattle, and Atlanta. Other cities surveyed include Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas/Fort Worth, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Philadelphia, San Diego, San Francisco, and Washington/Baltimore.

The survey found that commuters' most common response to others' rude or bad driving is a honk of the car horn at the offending driver (42 percent). Thirty-percent of respondents said they curse at the other driver, 8 percent make an obscene gesture, and 5 percent call the police.

Overall, 30 percent said they see drivers doing things like putting on makeup, shaving, or reading while driving. Los Angeles (43 percent) emerged as the city where one of these activities is most likely to be seen, and Seattle (18 percent) was the city where this behavior is least likely to happen.
