DFW Makes Road Rage List

alg road rage1 DFW Makes Road Rage List Every day across the U.S., drivers become enraged behind the wheel, whether during highway commutes or grocery-store runs. But when anger and frustration turns to violence, the result is road rage.

Each year, Connecticut-based automobile club AutoVantage surveys 2,500 drivers nationwide to learn where the hotbeds of rage are. For several years, Miami was the road-rage capital of the country. This year it’s New York.

Not so surprisingly, the most recent data also show that distracted driving, such as texting and talking on the phone, causes more violent incidences than any other activity. To help you avoid the hostilities, here are the top 10 American cities where road rage is ramped.

Here’s the latest Top 10 list

1. New York
2. Dallas/Fort Worth
3. Detroit
4. Atlanta
5. Minneapolis/St. Paul
6. Phoenix
7. Miami
8. Houston
9. Cincinnati
10. San Diego

    In my opinion one of the important things to look at is some of the causes of frustration which can lead to aggressive driving. Drivers that hang out in the left lanes while driving slow or slower than the traffic flow and are often talking on their phone generate a lot of frustration and also leads to a lot of lane changing to try to get around them. Restoring the laminar flow of traffic on multiple lane roads would help.
    My two cents for what it is worth
