The rudest drivers in the country are heavy on the horn and weave wildly through traffic, and a survey found that they are most likely to live in Idaho, Washington, D.C., and New York.

Those two states and one district sit at the top of Insure.com’s "Rudest Drivers" list.

“They tend not to signal, because they wouldn’t want anyone to know their next move. They don’t let people merge,” detailed Utah resident Matt Stubbs about his state, which landed 10th on the rudest drivers list. “They just keep looking straight ahead and pretending not to see that car trying to squeeze in next. They often blow through yield signs as if they don’t exist. And be careful in that parking lot, or you just might get clipped by someone barreling across the parking lanes to shave 10 seconds off their drive time.”

Massachusetts drivers, which hit the list at No. 5, are proud of their rude driving abilities, Insure.com said, as evidenced by popular “Masshole” bumper stickers.

“In Allstate’s 2014 'America’s Best Drivers' report, three Massachusetts cities duked it out with Washington, D.C., for the bottom spots among 200 cities: Springfield (197), Boston (199) and Worcester (200),” Insure.com said.

Heather Tobin told Insure.com that she’s embarrassed about being from Massachusetts. “Dangerously close tailgating is the first thing I notice, along with being dangerously cut off and having cars turn sharply, last minute, with no signaling,” she said.

Interestingly, Idaho, which had the dubious honor of sitting in the No. 1 spot on the list, has insurance rates that are some of the lowest in the nation, Insure.com said.

One of the challenges on Idaho roads, apparently, is people who drive so slowly as to appear rude.

Stubbs recently moved from Utah to Idaho, and those slow drivers shocked him. “Maybe I’m just used to the aggressive, overly-caffeinated (on Diet Coke) Utah drivers. That’s why everyone in Idaho seems to be driving so slowly,” he told Insure.com.
