New Yorkers Tops in Road Rage: Survey

Wednesday, 17 Jun 2009 09:26 AM

New Yorkers are America's angriest drivers, according to a survey published Tuesday.

The fourth annual Road Rage Survey by AutoVantage, a national auto club, saw New York jump from third to top in the angry league.

Following the Big Apple were Dallas/Fort Worth, Detroit, Atlanta and Minneapolis/Saint Paul.

The calmest drivers, according to the survey, cruise the laid-back roads of Portland, Oregon.

The survey classifies road rage as drivers who overreact, drive aggressively, speed, cut into lanes, tailgate and honk horns.

But AutoVantage also delves into the motivations for road rage.

Common triggers are the sight of other drivers making obscene gestures, talking on mobile phones, or "multi-tasking" behind the wheel, including shaving, the survey found.

The study questioned 2,518 people across the country.
