Norwalk, Conn. – May 13, 2008 – The third annual In The Driver's Seat Road Rage Survey, commissioned by AutoVantage, a leading national auto club, found that the least courteous city in the country is Miami, followed by Boston and New York. It's the third consecutive year that Miami takes the crown as road rage capital of America. The other two cities in the bottom five were Baltimore and Washington, D.C.

The In The Driver's Seat 2008 AutoVantage Road Rage Survey, released today, was conducted to determine the driving habits and attitudes of commuters across the U.S. and to learn more about consumer views on the topic of road rage. 

“Unfortunately, road rage is too often a way of life,” said Brad Eggleston, vice president of AutoVantage.  “More and more, in cities across America, people are acting out their frustrations with dangerous results.  And with a gridlocked, fast-paced, multi-tasking society, the trend continues to increase.

“There are some very interesting results in this year's Road Rage survey, which shines the light on emerging driving trends.”
