I can see how D.C is 5th. that place is a pain in the ass to drive in. I dread when I get jobs in there. DAMN I HATE THAT PLACE!!!!! It's one thing to drive your car there, its totally different drivin a truck with MONSTER glass racks on the side

Yeah... Houston is 11th, I think. I can see that too. It's bad, but not New York bad. When I went to New York there were people hanging out their windows and yelling. Just like in the movies! This was post 9/11 too... I wonder what it was like before.

i grew up in the dc area. I actually lived in VA but went to HS in Md, drivin here is absolutely nuts and a huge change from my what was a quiet college town of blacksburg, va (neVer forgeT 2007/04/16).

There are so many lanes around dc,funky one ways in dc and everyone thinks they own the road. I sold my jetta, so right now im using my silverado long bed 2500 (its 22ft+ in length) till i get my GTi next week, It is killing me, driving it around and parking.

Wow, I can't believe St. Louis made the list; usually people there aren't too bad. Then again, I've been living in NY/New England for the past four years, so that could be affecting my judgement.

I lived in Miami till I was 21, and holy crap it definitely deserves to be number one. Anything that you could possibly think of that rude and bad drivers do, you see it constantly in Miami. I think the big problem is the influx of people from latin america and whatnot, where they have a completely different kind of driving. Rude driving is just driving to them.

i would have to say that if your city is in the top 25 there is no help for all these people out there. out of millions of cities denver is 20 that is pretty shitty

My city (Edmonton, Alberta) wins the prize for dumbest drivers in North America and just plain worst-skilled drivers. Part of it is also, not rudeness, but just blind aggression, like "you're in my way and I have the right of way so I'm gonna step on the gas"... that kind of attitude. Not rudeness, just stupidity. I had a bit of a better feeling on that front in New England, when turning from a driveway into traffic people generally slowed down to avoid hitting you.

Where is Philly on the list?

If I had to rate it I'd rate it at like 3... I hate driving to the city.

Anytime my friends try and go to the bars out there I make sure I'm a passenger.

Ha... true. Damn Jersey.

And i'm not talking bad... its my hometown too... but some of the people (mostly Ford drivers from what I've seen) seem to think they have the run of the town... makes me sad. :(
