We used to think L.A. had the most incidents of road rage per mile in the country, but when visiting the city of Angels last November for the L.A. Auto Show were surprised that it wasn't as bad as we were expecting. That's probably because Miami, FL was rated as the city with the worst road rage in the country last year. Well, Florida's hottest destination for nightlife has again been named the city with the most road rage for the second year in a row. The road rage-rating survey that tracks these things was commissioned AutoVantage, a Connecticut-based auto club, and conducted by Prince Market Research.

The full list of worst road rage cities can be found after the jump, but the usual suspects are present and accounted for, including New York City, Boston, L.A. and Washington D.C. Only 25 major metropolitan cities were included in the survey, so while there was no check box for "Most Courteous", those at the bottom of the list should be considered the most stress free driving environments. Bringing up the back of the pack, and therefore the city with the least road rage, is Portland, Ore. Not surprising, since Portland has taken very progressive measures to reduce the amount of auto traffic in its city center.

Thanks for the tip, emulous1974!

      BS! I'd rate Atlanta above cities like Phoenix and DC. Everyone drives like a madman out here! :) Boston is a lot worse than NYC.

      That is why Reno 911 had to step in!

      RE: "The drivers there cut in front of you then honk at you like its your fault"

      I've never understood this. We get these aholes around here too. They pull out in front of you or cut you off, then give you the bird or start honking and screaming as if you're the bad guy. I'm guessing these people are probably drunk so I've started calling 911 every time I see one of these idiots and report their plate as a suspected DWI/road rager. I don't know if it makes a difference but better safe than sorry.

      Having lived in Miami for 14 years, I'd have to agree. So many nasty, mean, well armed, drugged up, unlicensed and uninsured drivers. After Miami, Atlanta was a cake walk.
