Florida drivers earned the designation of “the worst” drivers in the U.S., according to a recent study from CheapCarInsurance. Surprise.
The car insurance comparison site surveyed 2,000 drivers across the U.S. and ranked the four most populous states to figure out where the rudest and worst drivers dominate the roads.
Florida had the worst drivers, with 13.9 percent of respondents calling the drivers terrible and 38 percent calling drivers fairly bad. New York drivers were rated the best, with 51.3 percent of respondents calling drivers average.
Florida also earned the designation of one of the rudest, with 15.8 percent of respondents saying drivers were very rude and aggressive. New York drivers, although they were rated the best, were also deemed the rudest, with 15.7 percent of respondents saying drivers were very rude and aggressive and 37.4 percent saying drivers were fairly rude and aggressive.
So there it is, a barometer for driving in Florida. Bad and rude seem to go hand-in-hand, although it’s not clear whether drivers are rude because it’s tough out there on Sunshine State streets and highways, or whether drivers are just plain bad and impolite. Perhaps that’s part of the reason car insurance in Florida is among the priciest in the nation.
