I think I was clear, but to be crystal, ^^^^^ This.....I was referring to this particular crap when I called BS on Cincy being 9th on an aggressive drivers list.

It just REALLY depends. Cincinnati drivers are weird. They're over courteous in some contexts. In others they are despicable hell for leather baby eating monsters. Like the common area wide behavior I mentioned earlier about deliberately using lanes that dead end and forcing back into the traffic just before the barrels/cones/Jersey barrier.

As an example, this is a city where I constantly contend with idiots stopping the flow of traffic to motion another driver out of a parking lot / cross street and into moving traffic.
I validate your outrage.

I love it when people slam on the brakes to allow someone else to change lanes on the freeway, or to allow someone to turn left from the right lane.

Not.

"Courteous" on the road means not endangering everyone behind you in order to allow the idiot in front of you can do what s/he's not supposed to be doing in the first place.

My initial impression after not having driven around Cincy for a decade until recently is that the speed of traffic has picked up a little and people are tailgating more. But it is nowhere near as bad as the NASCAR mentality that prevails in the KC region. And the sheer number of self absorbed, oblivious to what is around them kind of drivers is far worse in KC than Cincy.

I don't like this list. It just gives insurance companies ideas.

Here's a link that works.

#10 San Diego | America's Most Agressive Drivers Revealed | Comcast.net

After reading the article I'd say it is not worth its weight in salt. It claims people in the Twin Cities are prone to tailgating. Nope. I've lived there and have driven there recently in the last year and a half and I witnessed or experienced almost no tailgating even during high volume traffic periods on the highway and on city streets.

Maybe last year they measured passive drivers and this year aggressve ones. What a BS list.

LOL. I've always said Cincinnati drivers are courteous to a fault; perhaps that fault is that they can turn aggressive on you within a year's time!
