List reveals states with the rudest drivers in 2021

A recently released list exposed the states that are home to the rudest drivers.

Insurify, an insurance comparison site used data from more than 4 million car insurance applications to compile a list of the top 10 states with the rudest driving behavior.  Data on actions such as failing to yield, passing when prohibited and tailgating were used to rank the states.

Eight of the ten states in the rankings in 2021 maintained their position within the list of states with the rudest drivers from 2020. The state in the number one spot for the second year in a row was Virginia.

The national average for instances of rude driving was 25.90 per 1,000 drivers.

With 43.26 infractions out of 1,000, Virginia was 41% higher than the national average. In comparison, the most polite state was Kentucky with 10 rude instances per 1,000 drivers.

Among the eight of the top ten states with the rudest drivers, the most common rude violation is failure to stop at a stop sign.
