Chances are, you’ve never been ticketed or fined for rude driving.

In most places, that’s not a thing.

But Insurify.com, a website that helps consumers compare auto and home insurance rates, wanted to rank the rudest and most polite drivers in 869 cities across the 50 states.

According to a report in Arizona Republic, the website defined rude driving as having one or more citations for failing to yield, failing to stop, improper support, passing where prohibited, tailgating, street racing and misdemeanor. leak.
