Which State Has the Rudest Drivers?

From the Weather Channel.
My home state Delaware is #6, Former State NJ #8, MD and PA down at 32 and 37 respectively. NY is #3 likely due to NYC. Cant understand why Idaho is #1. does anybody live there?

Different from the typical survey, it's usually which are considered the worst.

Rhode island usually wins there, and they're kinda proud of that. Claim the State is too small to learn to drive in before hitting a border.

Living 2 miles from I-95 we see all kinds of drivers here. Worst was when I was stationed at the New River Air Station in Jax. NC. Drivers from all different states and they brought their habits with them.

I was gonna say Texas, not much worse than my home state as far as rude. More dumb, like coming to a FULL STOP at what is clearly a YIELD sign, with 0 traffic.

I was however brake checked today by someone from Indiana i think.

A local peeve of mine here is those who stop at a yield when there is a merge lane. They haven't figured out they can speed up, carefully merge in that lane before it ends.

Really bad when they stop at the on ramp for a major interstate instead of merging.

Just got back from Delaware visiting at the beach and it was fine driving up route 1 over the bridge. Its just when I get into NJ where the problems start. I just don't see how they rate DE drivers more rude than NJ drivers.

I don't know either, but I am convinced overall rudeness, intolerance and aggressiveness have increased greatly over the years.

That is without question. I have been driving since 1974 and can't even begin to tell you how many miles I have logged with 50+ vehicles in that time but today's road with its drivers are the worst I have ever seen in all those years.
