In a survey conducted by AutoVantage, a Connecticut-based auto club, commuters in 25 U.S. cities were given an opportunity to vent about the rude behavior of their fellow drivers. Participants were asked to report incidents of road rage including tailgating, the use of profanity, and other angry behavior. The results: Miami drivers were rated the rudest for the second year in a row, while those in Portland, Ore. earned the distinction of the most polite.
