I know Miami has the worst road rage in the U.S. (3 yrs in a row now - way to go), but other than Miami, where do you find the worst, aggressive, rude drivers?

The keys are bad during tourist season. Whenever there's an accident, the 120 mile road comes to a standstill.

Orlando has to be the worst, you will go broke because of all the toll roads you have to use.

I'm going to have to go with the rest of South Florida. In Dade, a lot of the drivers are nuts, but the driving style reminds me of Latin America, which is to say that it's chaos, but it's organized chaos and you really don't see all that many accidents. On the other hand, somebody just needs to teach people in Broward and Palm Beach County how to drive, period. Things like moving over to the right when they see someone approaching in the left lane, or not passing on the right, or checking your blind spot before changing lanes, green means go, red means stop, the steering wheel turns the car, etc.

For aggressive and RUDE drivers, Orlando is the clear winner. I actually find the LACK of aggressiveness in Broward/Palm Beach to be rather disturbing. Everyone drives like they are asleep.

^^^Tru dat, lol.

It seems to be pretty bad here in Orlando. Havent lived in Orlando for too long, but enough to know it's bad.. As in, probably the worst I have seen except parts of S FL. I remember when Orlando (visiting as a youngster, I lived in FL but not Orlando) was smaller and the people seemed much nicer, which I think ties into the driving that has obviously gone downhill too. A total change.
