DC Drivers Slacking: Only 5th Meanest

DCA Stairwell

What is up with this slacking DC drivers? The annual AutoAdvantage survey of the meanest drivers only ranks you 5th in America. Somehow Miami took the top spot.

Okay, so they have sweltering summer sun baking a mix of hot Latin blood and very loose gun laws into road-raged perfect. But that doesn’t mean DC should be so nice.

We have a suburban SUV armada, rampant snowball fights on the Beltway, and even phallic tow truck drivers. And we can do better than 5th place.

I want to feel your rage this summer, Washington DC. I wanna see fist-fights over parking spaces, gun play on the Beltway, and just to make sure Miami drops back, a good cocaine-fulled, multi-state car chase involving at least four different types of special police.

    Personally, I was surprised we weren’t higher. Then again, we still stop for ducks, so I suppose we can’t be that evil.

    I’m surprised to see NYC rank higher than DC, considering that DC is such a car-oriented dense metro area, whereas NYC is not. Maybe they’re a little crazier than DC drivers (I’ve driven up and down Manhattan where street laws, lanes, etc. simply vanish), but DC drivers are straight-up psychotic and mean.

    Miami is a hard contender to displace. My hometown has the advantage of several classifications of jackhole driver. Not only are there the speed-demon punks who will run you off the road but there’s the stubborn geezers who refuse to stop driving even though they can’t see anymore and the illegals who bought their driver’s licenses on a street corner but can’t tell a stop from a yield.

    Yeah, here we have the diplomats among the jerkbags but they’re a small enough number you can go a week without having one screw you over, at least once you’re out of the city proper. Miami’s goobers are highly mobile and distributed.
