Default what city has the most aggressive drivers?

some cities have laid back drivers, who drive slow in the fast lane, or drive side by side for no reason at all. what cities have the most aggressive drivers who dont seem to have a slow lane and everybody goes way over the speed limit?

You put San Jose on the poll but not SF. By "San Jose" do you really mean "the Bay Area"? hint: basically nobody refers to the Bay Area as "San Jose" though some will refer to the Bay Area as "San Francisco." ...but just "The Bay Area" is definitely most common.

Anyways, the most aggressive drivers i've experienced have been in LA and NYC. The least aggressive would have to be in Rhode Island.

Why are these "northerners" in Atlanta not used to driving?

I guess technically that's right...but to most people it's just kind of confusing, as the Bay Area is first and foremost associated with SF (it is the "San Francisco Bay Area"), and SF is still considered the "main city" of the big 3 Bay Area cities, despite SJ having a larger population...not to mention a good amount of people outside of California and especially outside of the US don't even know where San Jose is.

Think about it like this:

You listed Washington DC, but not Baltimore...yet Baltimore has the higher population of the two. DC is the "main" city of that metro, and people think of it like that, despite it having less people,

Phoenix, BY FAR AND AWAY.

60 mph speed limit? Nah. If you don't go 90 you're toast. People actually honk at you for going the limit. Heck, on some of the main roads, 60 is the social MINIMUM, not the speed limit of 45.

And of course what few cops are around, people slam on their brakes to slow down to avoid getting tickets.

STUPID F8CKING PHOENIX DRIVERS!!!!!!! I swore off that rectal hole the moment I left, never going back.

And don't you even THINK about flipping them off or even looking at them mean afterwards ... because everybody in Phoenix has guns, and carries them in open daylight. It's true that when I was there on business for three months at a stretch, I saw on the news no less than FIVE shootings on the highway due to road rage.

Don't forget the Mexicans who drive semis illegally. I had one get to no less than a foot off my bumper once and was blaring his horn to speed up, but couldn't because of traffic. In before "OMG how do you know it was Mexican?" Sonoran license plate.
