Survey ranks Twin Cities drivers in Top 5 for road rage

Western Wisconsin residents who work in Minnesota's Twin Cities are finding the roads a lot less friendly these days.

A new survey ranks Minneapolis-St. Paul as the nation's fifth-worst place for road rage. And that's only a year after the Twin Cities were rated the fourth-friendliest in the annual survey by the AutoVantage auto club.

It says Twin Cities' drivers are the most likely to be eating behind the wheel and they're the second-most likely to tailgate and make obscene gestures at drivers who get in their way.

No Wisconsin cities were part of the AutoVantage survey, which is now in its fourth year.

Chicago was included, but the Windy City did not make the Top Five in either the worst or best categories.

New York replaces Miami as the place with the angriest drivers. Portland, Ore., is the most courteous.
