A nationwide study looked into which cities have the rudest drivers, based on the ratio of drivers with certain “rude” violations on their record . . . like failure to yield, passing where prohibited, tailgating, street racing, and hit-and-run.
Basically, inconsiderate drivers who endanger the lives of others.
This was all done by the insurance rate comparison website Insurify.
Out of the 869 cities they looked at, two cities in California ranked #1 and #2: Rancho Cordova and Citrus Heights, which are only a few miles apart from each other in the Sacramento area.
On the flipside, the two cities with the most POLITE drivers are both in Kentucky: Somerset and Corbin, which are both in the south-central part of the state.
They also found the rudest city in each state. For example, the city with the rudest drivers in Connecticut is Bristol, the home of ESPN. And #1 in South Carolina is Mount Pleasant, where the drivers . . . apparently aren’t. It just so happens that the rudest drivers in Illinois, according to these folks, reside in Aurora!
Insurify says 38.72 per 1,000 drivers in the City of Lights have been cited for “rude” behavior. That’s about 24% ruder than state average.
In Wisconsin, the rudest drivers are in Kenosha. In Indiana, it’s Hammond.
