Road Rage

MIAMI (AP) -- Chicago is seventh on a list that ranks cities based on road rage incidents.

The survey released today gave Miami the title of worst road rage for the second year in a row. Other cities near the top of the rude drivers list were New York, Boston, Los Angeles and Washington, D-C.

Auto-Vantage is a Connecticut-based automobile membership club that conducted the survey.

More than 25-hundred drivers who regularly commute in 25 major metropolitan areas were asked to rate road rage and rude driving in telephone surveys between January and March.

Chicago's seventh-place ranking is just below Phoenix. Last year, the Windy City was 13Th.

The most frequent cause of road rage cited in the survey was impatient motorists.

Drivers also said road rage can stem from poor driving in fast lanes and driving while stressed, frustrated or angry.
