NYC To Miami: Get Out Of My (Beep) Way

(CBS) Get the (expletive) out of the way, Miami.

New York City is now the new road rage capital of the United States, according to an annual survey released Tuesday.

Miami had taken the title the previous three years. New York was ranked third in the 2008 survey. Following the Big Apple in 2009 are: Dallas/Fort Worth, Detroit, Atlanta and Minneapolis/St. Paul, according to AutoVantage.

Portland, Ore. Was labeled the most courteous city, with Cleveland, Baltimore, Sacramento and Pittsburgh also in the top five.

Careless driving, such as tailgating or talking on cell phones, impatient and inconsiderate drivers were among the top reasons respondents said caused road rage.

The survey was conducted over telephone between Jan. 8 and March 24, 2009 and encompasses the responses of 2,518 participants. The margin of error is +/- 2 percent, according to AutoVantage.

I'm not surprised. Sometimes I yell at people while commuting...from the bus ;-)
We should have always been #1 have people not heard of the Cross Bronx or Belt Parkway or Van Wyk? It is like an olympic event.
BQE and Van Wyck, worst freeways I've ever driven (more like crawled) on. We totally deserve this ranking.
I taught it was always was..
Why does this SO interest a Tampa forumer??
I can't believe that Baltimore is ranked as one of the most courteous. Baltimore drivers are probably the most aggressive that I have ever seen, based on my experiences driving down there and all of them that pass through Delaware on I-95 towards other destinations.
Cross Bronx= Never getting across the Bronx
are you all forgetting about the world's second largest parking lot? The L.I.E.
