Between Chicago, NYC, and Boston, which one do you think it is? Feel free to name your own too.

Miami is the worst, no other city is remotely close.

They are probably "rude" in every big city. It's about survival on the overcrowded roads. They are also "rudest" in countries where the majority do not follow the traffic rules, where they can bribe police or are allowed to contest tickets.

Boston (and surrounding area), no doubt. They’re a uniquely bad combination of rude, incompetent, and law-flouting.

In my limited experience with NYC drivers, they’re pushy but not mean about, drive fast but mostly competently, and are less lawless than Bostonians.

Chicago drivers don’t strike me as especially bad. Miami, either.

Of course comparing them to drivers in some places outside the US (Rome, for example) is another story. No US drivers are as bad as those in some overseas locales.

Houston has all sorts of aggressive, stupid drivers. The worst ones are the drivers of the big lifted pickup trucks who get right on your tail and drive like complete a-holes. I find it amusing how clean and fancy most of those trucks look and how they hardly ever have anything in the truck bed. I figure they're just jerky guys trying to put on a pathetic macho image.

I’ve traveled all over the US, and Miami, Boston and Los Angeles drivers were the most aggressive, by far. San Francisco, San Diego and New York are not far behind.

Internationally, Seoul, Korea has severe congestion and nasty, hot tempered drivers.

Miami is a melding of Latin and gringo cultures, they don't follow the same rules.

The driving age in NYC is 18. That means 8,000,000 people that never took driver ed.

Montreal is notoriously in a class by itself.
