These days folks are doing all sorts of things behind the wheel, with the exception of keeping their eyes on the road. But what behavior infuriates drivers the most? Well, just in time for Memorial Day, when 30 million Americans are expected to hit the road, Expedia has released their third annual Road Rage Report, which reveals just what angers folks the most about other drivers.
While most of us are probably guilty of doing it at one time or another, the driver that infuriates people the most is “The Texter,” with 22% of folks bothered by those who text and drive. Coming in second is “The Tailgater” (14%), followed the “Last Minute Line Cutter” (13%). Man I hate them!
Other infuriating drivers include:
- The Left-Lane Hog (11%)
- The Crawler (8%)
- The Multitasker (8%)
- The Swerver (8%)
- The Speeder (5%)
- The Drifter (5%)
- The Honker (3%)
As for how that rage presents itself, 48% of people say they’ve received a “rude/hostile hand gesture” (you know the one with ‘the finger’), while 35% have been yelled or cursed at and 13% have been accosted by a driver who exited the vehicle, with 9% actually getting into a physical altercation with a driver.
